Poor price for a 6 year old laptop. You can pick 2-3 year old ones up for that same price
Lol that's way too expensive for its age.
I was selling mine, the 2016 13 inches model on eBay for 1K and I got offers of 750-800 (refused) so definitely you can pick up something much more recent for that money you would be spending on that.
A 2011 model should be a lot cheaper.

My buyer didn't pay grrrr so I will try selling it when another promotion on fees comes up.

Apple's PCs are massively overpriced second hand. They're fairly competative with other high end models new but I wouldn't touch older ones with a bargepole unless Mac OS is essential.
