Won't be supported with the latest OS upgrades.
Can't you hackintosh i.e 6th Gen i5 windows laptop for less.

Is it one with a disc drive or the retina model?

I have the disc drive version and they’re brilliant machines and my friends that work in IT swear by them, in terms of easy to replace parts, but they rarely go faulty.

It also depends if you get a warranty with them.

My MacBook Pro is from about 2012 but I’ve put a 512GB SSD in and it’s got 16GB RAM. It’s still fast and reliable and quite a beast. Only hiccup I’ve had was installing an OS once and I just returned to the previous OS.

£240 isn’t too bad, I don’t think.

But why do you NEED a spare? And does it have to be a MBP?

For a family member (college). The reason i prefer the mpb is because of macOS, camt go back to anything else. If there were no options it would be windows 7.

Sounds like you know what you want. If it’s just the price you’re unsure of, check CEX online and check eBay auctions that are ending soon.

Yeah, I’m pretty bad when it comes knowing how much something is actually worth.

it really depends on what you want it for. With an SSD, it'll be perfectly fine for lighter use, internet browsing, some photo editing, streaming video, stuff like that.
