    Bought this around a year ago from a AVforums member: http://www.avforums.com/forums/arch...94879-sale-macbook-pro-13-mint-condition.html

    It is running software 10.6.8 and comes box with all cables and discs (including iLife '11)

    £475 DELIVERED.

    Hi

    You say it has no marks on it. How shiny are the keys from use ? Also, how's the battery life ? How many cycles ?

    The don't have any wear on them from what I can see. It's tricky to get decent pictures using my iphone.

    I'm unsure as to the cycles. Currently running a fresh install of osx so will check once complete

    Ok, let me know. Any other issues or problems that a buyer should be aware of ? Reason for sale ? I suppose I'm concerned as to why this is at least a 3rd owner machine now.

    The battery has had 477 cycles.

    It's in great condition. I don't like saying its "as new" as obviously this machine is nearly 3 years old, but there are no scratches or dents at all. It has never left the house.

    Reason for sale is that it has barely been used over the last month or 2. I prefer to browse the Internet on the iPad. I could also use the cash for a upcoming holiday so I've decided to sell.

    Let me know if its of interest.

    Thanks for the info. I think I'd be interested in offering £415 for it. At 477 cycles, the battery is approaching the time when the system profiler will suggest changing it. I'd also need to upgrade the hard drive to a bigger one.

    £415 is a little on the low side.

    I'd consider meeting in the middle at £445?

    Sorry, £415's the highest I'd go. A new hard drive will cost £35 ish, and when the battery needs replacing, that could be £100. If I add those to £445, I'm close to the amount of money required to buy a used, newer i5 Macbook.
