    Hi all, am looking for old Macbook Pro 15" for family use. Anything from 2010 onwards considered, including early Retina models. Macbook Pro 17" also considered.

    No Core2Duo CPU models please, only models with i5 or i7 CPUs

    Small HDD or SSD is fine, dents and scratches on body is fine, broken DVD drive is fine. London pickup is possible.

    Many thanks Tom

    I have a 15inch 2012 non-retina hi-res matte screen ( 1680x1050 )
    2.6 i7 - 16gb ram - 128gb ssd and 750gb hdd ( replaced dvd with the ssd )

    On Mojave.
    I ran Lightroom, adobe CC, cinema 4d on it daily until last month.

    Only issue is a 1 pixel wide blue/yellow line running down the screen. It's been like that for 3 years and I got used to it. ( it doesn't appear when connected to an external display )

    I can post pictures if you are interested.
    It's in great condition for the ages, everything in working order apart from the screen line issue.
    I'm in Stratford / London Bridge.

    £400.

    Hiya Welby, many thanks for the offer. I've been looking up the specs of your 2010 17", and realised that really I should have specified only the 2011 model 17" because of various improvements (Much better CPU, Thunderbolt, better wifi, SATA III drives, much better GPU etc).

    That said, I'm still cautiously interested for a good price. What RAM do you have? Any info on battery life? Original Apple charger included? Price?

    Many thanks Tom

    I think it's 8gb, as stated I have removed hard drive. It has original charger
    How about £50.00 posted. I did change the battery about a year ago so it's ok
    Case is not too bad.
    Trust this helps.

    £50? Ok I'll take a plunge. Let's take this to PM. If you're in London, happy to meet up.

    Not in London I'm afraid and I can't post till Monday
    Just to be sure it is no hard drive and it's a 9 year old laptop but at 50 quid I think it's worth a punt as you may get some use out of it.
    I will send a PM with payment details, PPG OK with you.?

    Sure, Monday posting is fine. £50 sent via PPG.

    Looking forwards to getting it.

    just to recap:

    - 2010 Macbook Pro, all working, 8GB RAM, but no HDD.
    - Original Apple charger
    - battery replaced last year.

    Could you clarify if the new battery came from an Apple shop or eBay or other third party? Just to help me plan out next week.

    I think it was a third party battery from Amazon

    Apple also replaced the Logic Board about 5 years ago

    I can't give any guarantees on any parts at the end of the day its 50 quid Macbook Pro
    I hope you can get some use out of it
    I will let you know when posted on Moday
    Funds received thanks very much

    It's OK I was going to put on Flea Bay but I despair with the idiots that populate that site.
