I have a mid-2010 MacBook Pro laptop, with a 2.53Ghz i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, and 500GB 7200RPM HDD, which is now surplus to my requirements. The catch is that it is prone to crashing once or twice a day due to a known issue with its display driver (see here for details).
Apple did offer a free fix if it fell within 3 years of purchase, but I miss out on this by a matter of weeks. I will be contacting Apple support on Monday to see if they can squeeze me in free of charge, considering I'm only just outside the qualification period, but I have to cater for the contingency of them sticking to their guns on this one.
Apart from this (obvious) annoyance, the laptop works well, and is in pretty good condition. This crashing has been happening for quite a few months now, and I've still been able to use it as my primary development machine (with the expected odd choice word when the damn thing does decide to reboot itself).
I am currently weighing up my options, and one of these is selling it as is but being totally up front about this problem. Bearing this in mind, how much would you be prepared to pay for a laptop like this? Or would you avoid it like the plague?
If it sweetens the deal at all, I can also throw in the original 4GB RAM (2x 2GB modules), which were replaced with 2x4GB modules not long after purchase.
