We're upgrading!

I have for a sale a Mid-2010 MacBook Pro 15"
i5 2.53ghz with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD

As you would expect from a computer of this age it has a few minor cosmetic issues but still runs well.

Offers around $1000 seem reasonable going by trademe for this kind of spec

Power supply included of course

As in the FUG for this forum, please don't discuss pricing in the thread. Send me a PM!

Located in Dunedin. Free shipping!

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

HI, I assume this is a non-Retina model, and hence can take 2 x 8GB DIMMs?

Thanks, that I was trying to find out. I know some Macbook models DO work with 8GB dimm's but some don't!

I'm guessing that this is an A1286 with Intel Core i5 540M as per details here:
http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-i5-2.53-aluminum-15-mid-2010-unibody-specs.html

So 8GB RAM is max due to the Core i5 540M CPU.
http://ark.intel.com/products/43544/Intel-Core-i5-540M-Processor-3M-Cache-2_53-GHz

If you really need more RAM in a Unibody Macbook Pro, you'll need to look at the 2011 (Sandy Bridge) and 2012 (Ivy Bridge) models.
