    Hi

    I'm thinking about moving on my late 2013 Macbook. Full details are available directly from Apple here:

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) - Technical Specifications

    In brief the specs are

    Processor: 2.4 GHz i5
    Memory: 8GB
    Hard Drive: 256 GB SSD

    I've owned it from new and it was bought directly from an Apple store in Bristol. Since then its worked flawlessly. Its been used as a desktop replacement so is in great condition and the battery count it only 127 with a health of 95%. I have the box and all the packing materials which are themselves in top nick. It still has almost a years Applecare (expiring 22nd October 2016) which is transferrable to the buyer.

    Collection from Bristol (BS3) would be ideal but it wouldn't be any great problem to post this out by RMSD or some other tracked and insured delivery

    Cheers

    John

    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included

    Hi
    Based on this one which sold for £570
    For Sale - MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display early 2013

    And taking account it is a higher spec:
    15" vs 13"
    i7 vs i5
    It had a 1gb graphics card

    I'll like to offer £470 cash collected
    Can potentially arrange during weekday morning, afternoon, evening collection
    Would prefer to meet at a work reception or coffee shop etc.

    Thanks but that's substantially lower than I'd be willing to accept. If that really is the kind of cash that I'm looking at then I'll just keep it as a spare...

    Thanks but I've been doing a bit of digging on other sites and I'm sure it worth much more than that. This one sold on eBay for £700 and it didn't have any AppleCare.

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) i5 2.4 GHz 256GB SSD 8GB

    I'm loathed to use eBay and pay their extortionate fees but at the same time I'm not in a position to give this away.

    This 2015 model sold for £600 here

    For Sale - Macbook Pro Retina 13" 2015

    I'll stand with offer at £500

    I tok have been looking on eBay
    I think my offer is about average eBay prices minus the high fees like you said; also taking away time waister bidders and non payers; as I've seen multiple adverts relisted due to time waisters.

    I work over at Aztec West not far from Cribbs if that helps

    That has a hard drive that's half the size and has less AppleCare. If your going to make comparisons then please stick to machines with broadly the same specs.

    The going rate on Ebay is around £700. The fees will work out at about 100 so that leaves £600. Can you please link me to other sales on eBay that have gone for significantly lower than this (you say £500 after fees is the average) because I can't find them...

    I'd be wanting the buyer to collect from my house so that they can see that if works and because., to be blunt, I'm not a delivery service. I'll happily take it to the post office and let RMSD deliver it with the buyer paying the fee

    eBay prices are all over the place but from say this, hence I agree prices do go up to £700 hence I said an estimate average after fees I think £500 is fair, but appreciate if you want to go other route for more;

    Fair enough that did go cheap but is no way indicative of the average price. None of these had AppleCare which is an important selling point when your buying off a stranger. Good luck with finding a laptop, we are clearly too far apart in our valuations to reach a deal. You're obviously are looking for something at a knockdown price but, as I said before, I'm not in a position to give this away. I'll be leaving this ad up but in the meantime list it in a few other places so will change the initial post to reflect that.

    Thanks for your time anyway :)

    I can offer £560? Or any interest in a part-ex for a MacBook Air possibly?

    Thank you very much for the offer - I really appreciate it but £560 is too low. I'm not overly interested in a MacBook Air but can you give a few more details on it and what kind of deal you had in mind?

    Cheers

    John

    Ive added a few (very bad) photos. Ill replace these with some better ones later on this afternoon if I get some time!

    I've been over the laptop very closely this morning and it really is in great nick. The only small blemish I can see is a hairline scratch (only visible in the right light) on the bottom of the laptop

    Cheers

    John

    It's a 2012 13' MBA 8GB. In very good condition, boxed with all accessories. I've just received it back from Apple yesterday with a new battery fitted. I could offer something along the lines of that + £175?

    Alternatively, what is the lowest you could possibly drop to in terms of price?

    Thanks for the details. Ill need to do a bit of research on the Macbook Air but as I said before Im not really in the market for a new laptop.

    In terms of price my bottom line would be £600 collected

    Cheers
