    For Sale : Mac Book Pro ( Maxed Out Spec )
    Spec as follows :

    15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display

    Part Number: Z0ML
    With the following configuration:
    • 2.7GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz
    • 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
    • 768GB Flash Storage
    • Backlit Keyboard (US) & User’s Guide (English)
    • UK Accessory Kit


    PLUS 2nd boxed 85W magsafe charger

    This is a UK machine bought in from the Apple Store Online directly.

    It has lived its entire life in a Speck Hard Shell and is in pristine condition.

    I like US keyboards, hence I spec my machines with them. I prefer the horizontal return key which is just easier to hit!

    Machine has about ~850 cycles on the battery charge and lasts about 4 hours on a full charge. ( Picture is from a fresh install )

    This machine was upgraded to the maximum and still runs absolutely flawlessly.

    Sadly I need to carry a machine for work and this beast is just too heavy for me now.

    Price and currency: 850
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: Bank Transfer
    Location: NW3
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    I keep looking at your advert as I have been looking for a well priced 15" for a while. Could you please confirm the age because I keep telling myself it must be 3/4 years old due to the battery usage at 900 days. If it's newer I am definitely interested.
    Regards
    Brian

    Its a 2012 Model, I got it in July 2012. It had apple care for 3 years but has now expired.

    I also have a 2nd 85W magsafe charger for the machine, which is about 50-60 quid new.

    As I said in the advert its in fantastic condition. Never left the house and has been in a speck case nearly all its life.

    Everything is boxed, including in its original shipping packaging. I have even re-inserted the tissue paper and re-wrapped in its shipping cellophane.

    I should have used my head and looked for a trade, sadly I have already got one and with the Kavar Spec, US keyboard upgrade the CPU ;)

    Out of interest is it the 2016 model or the 1 year old version?

    Hi
    It was purchased new December 15 with a Dec 15 build date. Top spec with the faster processor and 512gb ssd.
    No worries as looks like your sorted. I would be interested in yours but would need to either PX or sell something first.

    Wife says no to the gold, otherwise I think we could have done a deal.

    Let me know if you manage to get rid of it.

    My old machine dominates this little macbook but for the sake of portability sacrifices have to be made!

    I am keen to sell but a quick check on royal mail and inter parcel says its going to cost about 20-25 for an insured delivery.

    I think 750 is too much of a drop. The most recent similar sale I saw was 800 for a 2013 model with 256gb and 8gb ram. I think 850 for an extra 512gb SSD and 8gb ram is a good deal.

    Good luck with your search and if you can get closer to my asking price let me know.

    Thats not any closer to my price, thats just paying for an insured delivery.

    Really would like to sell but as I said the next closest sale was for 800 for a base model, I am offering a machine which was upgraded at factory to maximum and a 2nd magsafe charger.

    I even have a thunderbolt to ethernet adaptor which I was going to throw in as my new machine is USB-C :(

    Thanks for the offer, but I will hold out for a bit closer to the asking.

    Good luck with your search..

    Sorry no, I did an online estimate for the postage and that didn't include the extra Supply so I am expecting it may cost a bit more.

    Honestly I don't know what you want me to say, I said in the ad I didn't want to mail.

    The price had no postage included so I have knocked 50 quid off the price as an offer.

    The price was fair ( Its a 2350 pound machine new, plus 90 quid of accessories ) and I have knocked a bit off as you seemed like you wanted a machine. ( And I added the extras after I posted the advert )

    When I said no to your original offer and said thanks you could have stopped there. Instead I have spent some time checked the postage costs, answered your questions and you still want to beat me down a bit more.

    If you want to be out, be out! If you want a great machine in great condition then let me counter, I will do your price of 815 and I will advertise the dongle and PSU separately. ( I won't post the extras )

    It's not my intention to offend or get into an argument but 2015 models in the 13' variety are selling for what you're asking. With the latest top of the range units in 15" selling for only a few hundred quid more !! Add the fact that the battery has lost nearly a quarter of its life and its got a US keyboard makes worth less than what you're wanting unfortunately.

    My offer was to include the second power adapter as that is the only reason why I upped my original offer.

    I hope you find a buyer at your price

    I don't think you can compare a 8g dual core i5 256gb machine with a 16gb quad core i7 with 750gb machine. If you could then you wouldn't be looking for a higher spec machine.

    I will do it at your price, 815 you said. PM me with your details and I will send mine.

    I will hang onto the thunderbolt ethernet adaptor if you don't mind, my wife can use it with her current Air.
