**This item is sold on behalf of a friend of mine, though it is currently in my possession in anticipation of sale**
This will be quite a lengthy description as I wish to outline the details of the MacBook here for sale, and also its issues.
First of all: It is a 13-inch, Late 2011 model Macbook Pro, base model, with the following specs:
- 2.4ghz i5
- 4gb RAM
- 500gb HDD
- Intel HD 3000 graphics
- OS X Yosemite
The laptop has primarily been used for basic word processing tasks, e-mail etc.
In the past, the logic board developed a fault and was replaced professionally by Apple. I also had the hard drive replaced by a local IT person who did not place the screws on the bottom plate back properly. Several have them have fallen out since this time. The bottom plate is held in by 5 or so screws.
Cosmetically the MacBook has a few scuffs, scratches and two noticeable dents: one on the right of the trackpad, and one on the chassis above the Escape key (see pictures).
Unfortunately, the MacBook was recently dropped whilst headphones were plugged in. After removing the headphones it is now clear that both the headphone port and the SD card port are mis-aligned with the chassis, so it is very difficult to plug in SD cards and headphones very loosely fit in. When booting into the operating system, OS X thinks that the only output is the Digital Optical Output and so it will not recognise the internal speakers as a valid output (though the Internal speakers do definitely work, as the startup chime sounds properly). When you plug headphones in, sound plays properly through the headphones.
So in short, you can use this laptop with headphones (and presumably digital output, though not tested), but the internal speakers are not recognised. I did a quick google, and it seems this is a very common issue. Apple themselves have a help page dedicated to this issue: they simply recommend that the laptop is 'serviced'.
I have no idea what the problem is, and have no real inclination to have it repaired as I have since purchased a new laptop. Clearly, however, it is as a result of the drop.
To be clear, other than this problem with the sound (and the cosmetic damage) the laptop appears to be in full working order. It boots fine, and works as before.
This may be a simple fix for someone, but the laptop is sold here as faulty/for spare parts/sold as seen.
It comes with the official charger, unboxed. Though, it will be securely wrapped before shipping.
You are most welcome to view the laptop (Lancaster) before purchasing.
It will come with a clean copy of Yosemite.
Any questions, please ask.
