Hey all, I know you all like a bit of warranty around here, this is covered by AppleCare warranty until February 2017.

The MacBook is in good condition, just a small 'ding' and a scratch to the lid and a few scratches on the base cover (these are difficult to avoid, but of course not visible unless the machine is turned upside down), the screen, keyboard and trackpad are all excellent.

It originally had a 1TB HDD, but I have had this replaced with a smaller, faster 250GB, it features an Intel Core i5 2.5ghz processor, and 4gb memory/RAM. The memory and hard drive are fully upgradeable should you require more.

This is still a current model which can be bought new today from Apple themselves (or PC World etc.) for £899. It is the last model of MacBook Pro to feature a DVD writer drive.

It is in full working order, and updated to the very latest OS X El Capitan software. It has some great additional software installed too, including Microsoft Office 2016 and Apple's GarageBand etc.

The battery is great, and lasts for hours and hours.

It is complete with it's original box, and genuine Apple MagSafe charger, which is in very good and undamaged condition.

Due to the MacBook's high value I would prefer a cash on collection sale, I will however send by Royal Mail Special delivery but would require BT payment to do this.

Also advertised locally.

Thanks for taking a look.
Shipping/Payment:
Cash on collection or BT/RMSD please

Might want to mention that the actual Apple year of this MacBook is Mid 2012 not 2014 as you've stated in your title. You may well have bought it in 2014 but that doesn't make it a 2014 MacBook it's still a Mid 2012. Just posting this so no buyers may get the impression that it is a 2014 when it's not.
As from the pic we can see 2012 is still present model

Whilst what you say is partially correct, the 'mid 2012' is the very last (and still current - £899 in the shops) non-Retina MacBook Pro, and is the last one to feature a DVD drive (as stated in the ad). This MacBook is dated January 2014 (on the packaging etc), and was new in February 2014 (hence whilst it still has Applecare remaining until next February).

As a wild comparison, the current VW Scirocco came out in 2008 - should someone selling a 12 months old one advertise it as a 2008?

I think the price also confirms what the MacBook is, as a 2014 250gb Retina model with 6 months Applecare remaining cannot be bought for £400, I hope you'd agree.

p.s. the HDD and RAM cannot be upgraded in Retina models either

RMSD at £15 and BT agreed. Have emailed ID and bank details to warner38, and will post tomorrow, pending payment.

I was only stating this to prevent any buyer from thinking that this is a 2014 model because it is not. Whilst you bought it in 2014 doesn't make it a 2014 model as only 2014 models were retinas.
My statement is fully correct and was only to keep any potential buyer on the right track.
Go into apple, about my mac and post a picture of it. I guarantee everyone it'll say Mid 2012.

Same as an Audi was made in 2010 but wasn't registered until 2012, it's still a 2010 car, because the date of registration isn't the actual date the car is from, or the laptop in this case.
Just because it was registered in 2014 doesn't make it a 2014 MacBook

It wasn't 'registered' in 2014, it was built in 2014. You can buy a brand new one from Apple today - do you think they just built loads of them in 2012 and are still trying to get rid of them?? Apple still produce it now, they are not an old model, just a successful model that there is still demand for, clearly.

It is 100% clear that the MacBook I have for sale isn't a Retina model, and I'm not sure why you came along to be the MacBook Police :)

I'll do my best to explain the situation mate, there are a lot of MacBook's out there, and I assumed that anyone looking would know a bit about the range, but no probs, here is the situation.

Here is a link to the MacBook Pro page on Apple's website (right now, in 2016);
http://www.apple.com/uk/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro

If you scroll down past the 13" Retina models, and the 15" models, you will find one at £899 - this is the exact same model as I am selling (albeit with a 500gb HDD).

It was originally launched in 2012, as were the first Retina models. The Retina MacBook's get an annual update (a slightly faster processor usually). This one has been unchanged since 2012, but as you can see, can still be bought today.

The reason it still sells I guess is some people like to upgrade their RAM/memory and HDD/SSD - this cannot be done with Retina models - you are pretty much stuck with whatever it originally came with. Also it has a built in DVDR, some people prefer that too.

This one was produced in January 2014, and was bought new in Feb 2014, with 3 years warranty, hence why there are 6 months remaining.

If it was a 2014 Retina with 250gb drive and 6 months Applecare, I think it would be £650ish, and wouldn't be upgradeable, or have a DVD drive. It would have an improved screen resolution of course.

If you are no longer interested then no worries, but you have been the victim of someone trying to scaremonger, there is nothing at all wrong with the MacBook or my ad.

I can't believe some of the 'know alls' on here. All Retina models come with solid state storage, but it's not a regular SSD like you might buy to upgrade your PC/laptop, it looks like this;

https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/igi/LbyL4wbx2LKNADgb

The point I was trying to make was if the MacBook Retina in the eBay ad had a larger drive, it would be even more expensive, perhaps another £100+.

I was trying to underline that my price wouldn't buy a Retina model.

Mods?? I'm sure warner38 must be really thinking I was trying to have him over, please can you step in and try to help resolve this ridiculous situation. Cheers.

No worries mate, it's a shame though that these gobsh*tes have come along to try and unnerve you. Thanks for your time anyway, and hopefully you might get your head around it and see that nothing is wrong. I'll email you the product details showing it was produced in January 2014 just so you know.
#20
Have emailed PROOF to warner38 that the Macbook was produced in 2014.

Thanks to the idiots on here that have just demonstrated that the old saying 'a little knowledge is a dangerous thing' is still valid in 2016.

I've lost a buyer, and warner38 has lost a bargain. Well done.
#21
All you have to do is post us a pic of the about my mac section which clearly states it's mid 2012. It's quite clear that you're very reluctant to do this!
That'll clear it all up for everyone!
No matter what year you bought it in still doesn't defeat the fact it's a mid 2012 laptop!

The screen I'm asking you to post is this one! Tells you all about your Mac and is easily got by going to the apple and click about my Mac.
Here's mine as an example.

I'm responding to this in order to 'clear my name' as it were, I would not waste my time trying to get your approval, be assured. I still have no idea why you feel you should interfere, you should be banned for your behaviour in this thread.

YES, this model of MacBook was initially launched in 2012, but it is still sold in Apple stores, and is still built brand new today.

This one was built and purchased in 2014 - proof has been sent to the user who was planning on buying (until you scared him away!).

If my ad was so misleading, how did you know it was a mid-2012 (designed!) MacBook?? It wasn't misleading at all!

So, please finish the job and answer these questions for us all, especially warner38;

If you walk into an official Apple Store tomorrow, and wander over to a brand new non-Retina, £899 model MacBook Pro and click on 'About this Mac', will it say 'Mid 2012' on the screen? Yes or No?

Would this MacBook, the one on display in the Apple Store at £899, have been actually produced/built way back in 2012? Yes or No?

Does my ad anywhere say, or even suggest, that my MacBook is a Retina model? Yes or No?

Can a 2014 (designed) Retina model, with a substantial chunk of Applecare remaining, be bought for £400? Yes or No?

WHEN you have answered YES/NO/NO/NO to the above, you can be considered an utter time-wasting, scaremongering idiot, who actually doesn't fully understand the can of worms you have taken it upon yourself to open.

The issue here is that you've advertised it as a 2014 MacBook when it isn't, it's a mid 2012.

Why are you so reluctant to produce the photo I've asked for then? Just upload a pic of it and it'll solve all problems. You don't want to upload it because you know it contains the truth!
And yes your MacBook and if you buy one from Apple Store tomorrow will both show mid 2012. Just upload it to resolve all fuss

How do I know is 2012? it's quite easy for someone who buys and sells MacBooks frequently.
I should be banned? You're the one using foul language and Mis-advertising not me.

Just answer the questions, mouth.

It does say mid-2012 (OBVIOUSLY!) because that's how Apple label their products, but as per my previous post, a brand new one in an official Apple store would say exactly the same. Would you argue with the Apple Genius in the shop that the brand new laptop was 4 years old???
