Hi Guys,

I am looking to sell my beloved Macbook Pro, because i am purchasing a smaller and more compact laptop for the missus for christmas. This is my pride and joy but it unfortunately has to go.

It is the top of the range model that apple make! its got the HD screen 1920x1200 resoloution! DVD's look amazing on this thing!

It has the Intel based 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo processor in it and it will do everything and anything you want it to do and has never been unable to handle my video and music editing load. Contains 3GB RAM and this speeds the Mac up a whole lot and helps keep everything running smoothly.

There is a 160GB HDD in this laptop running at 7200Rpm so its quick whe trying to access info from the Hard Drive.

It has just had a brand new SuperDrive installed by Apple as the last one was giving me some issues!

There are no dead pixels on the screen and there is the smallest of dents in the bottom right corner which is practically unnoticeable unless you look close. I bought it in the summer of 2007 and have also got the extended warranty plan as well. This lasts until summer 2009!

All the software i got with the laptop like iLife and Leopard will come with the laptop and there will also be Photoshop CS3 in there to sweeten the deal.

Now to the price

Im really looking for around £1100 but all offers will be considered within reason!

Thanks for your time guys!! this really is a great laptop and would make a great xmas present for anyone. Any questions feel free to ask
Cheque (Prefer)

as a new user you will most definately be asked to post pictures with a visible note of your name and the date, and also where to find feedback on your trustworthiness- i.e. an ebay name.

Just warning you, especially for an item with such a high selling price.
OP, people are obviously going to want to know where you are based for collection.

I also second what curvy chicka said about posting a photo with your username in :thumbsup:
Thanks for the advice guys! i will post some pics asap!

I havent been on my ebay account for yonks!!

I am not trying to scam anyone, am based in sunderland, at uni there and need to get the money for an xmas laptop for the girlfriend. but i understand, in this day and age you cant trust anyone.
CS3 legit or not? Otherwise it wouldn't be advisable to advertise it..
ok so not sure how to add pics!! any ideas? sorry a bit new to this thing!

hi guys!! Need this sold asap!! Will drop £100 off and include a neoprene case!! Plus leopard installed and disk!!

Only holding here till tomorrow then unfo it's off to the online auction :(

Plz save it from the BAY!!!
Hi bigchris, just been having a look at the complete specs for this model and have a few questions - does it come complete with the original box, plus all manuals/documentation? Also was it originally from the Apple refurb store or was it brand new?

I checked the prices on ebay and they vary quite a bit. One sold on the 18th for £803 incl postage, but another one sold on the 9th for £1105 incl postage. There was also another guy selling for £900 but it didn't get a bid.

I think £1000 is possibly a little high considering you say it's got a small dent(?) Also worth noting that if you sold it for £1000 on ebay, you'd pay approx. £150 ebay/paypal fees, leaving you with about £850 :oops:

Whats the lowest you'd go? I not sure I can justify buying another Mac, but it might help generate some interest from other people :thumbsup:
Thanks for your pointers mate! :)

It was bought new in June 2007 NOT a refurb

Yea it has a small dent (though very unoticable) basically just wear and tear nothing serious or that stands out.

It comes in a box that apple sent me when i had to get it repaired!! (the superdrive knackered up so they replaced it last month) it will include a neoprene case, charger, macbook pro + the leopard disk i bought! it has leopard already installed as fresh install aswell

I realise what you were sayin about price and im really looking for about £950 + postage if i can and thats really the lowest i can go, only because i still have to pay for the macbook for the wife.

It also has the High Res screen (1920x1200) + its Matte so its alot better for the proffesionals when doing work both outside and in.

£950 + postage via BankTransfer is really all i can do guys. (may accept cheque but wont post untill its all cleared)

Plz keep it from the BAY!!

will leave it open till tomorrow!!

Cheers Guys
To shift this tonight before i wack it on ebay! im dropping it too £900 thats it folks! £900 is a great deal for this laptop!!! its in great nic and its got 18months still left on the warranty!!! guys £900 is in my opinion below what its worth but i would rather not take it to the bay and £900 is the last effort!! still getting the lot plus the leopard disk and the case!!! PLZ guys!! Its going on ebay at 12 midnight!!

Leave me a comment and i will be checking regularly until then.
