    15" Glossy Screen (High-res 1680x1050)
    2GHz Intel Core i7
    16GB RAM
    240GD SSD - OCZ Agility 3
    AMD Radeon HD 6490M
    OSX 10.8.3

    Fully boxed, will get some photographs of the laptop this weekend. Overall I would say it's in great condition, a few light scratches on the underside of the laptop as expected. No marks, scratches or blemishes on the screen.

    Also have the original HDD that came with the laptop if you're not wanting the SSD. The 16GB RAM and SSD transformed the machine.

    Warranty until 5th April 2014

    Prefer collection but I can post at a cost to the buyer, fully insured. Prices below are for collection.

    £825 with 16GB RAM & 240GB SSD
    £800 with 8GB RAM & 500GB HDD

    Location: Manchester
    I have read the trading rules and agree to abide by them at all times until the transaction is concluded to the satisfaction of all parties involved : Yes.

    Yow will need to get around £1100 on eBay to clear £950
    eBay charge £75 fee then paypal take around £35, and then you got your postage as well
    I just sold a 5dmk 2 and I found out the hard way
    I'm trying to justify getting a mac book pro as I have a imac 27
    And only want laptop for photo editing on hols

    Yeah that's why I'm trying to avoid eBay! I'm open to offers as long as they're not taking the pee!

    It's non-retina high res gloss screen. 1680x1050 resolution. If it was retina I'd be asking for a lot more than £900!

    Will definitely be posting photographs today of the Macbook Pro, charger and box. Would love to get it sold before I go away in a couple of weeks time!

    That's just the shadows, couldn't get a decent angle without shadows!

    Looking for £900 which includes the laptop being fully boxed, with charger and warranty until April 2014.

    Yes, I have the original 500GB HDD, I'd have to double check tomorrow if it is 500GB but I'm pretty certain it is. If also need to see what I could sell the SSD for separately. Did you have a price in mind for the MBP without the SSD?

    I have a hard drive so no need for any replacement. I was thinking £700 without a drive.

    Thanks for the offer, it is less than I'm looking to accept. A similar spec MBP is on the forums for £800 and that has half the RAM, no warranty and a big dent in it!

    Thanks for the offer but I'd be looking for closer to my asking price. If you can increase your offer I'd be willing to sell the MBP without the SSD and 8GB RAM. You could collect it any day this week.

    No worries. I'll withdraw and wait for the next one. Trading seems to have dropped off massively in the last few months.

    I'm sure it's not! Just shows that an upgraded fully working one for around £800-900 isn't asking the world!

    £875 and it's yours :) Can collect any day this week except tomorrow as I'm being dragged into town by the missus! Will even throw in the unused 500GB HDD so you can use it in an external caddy or in place of the Superdrive.
