I've just switched to a new MBP (for 4k support) and have my mid-2014 MBP to sell. It's a decent spec: i5 2.8GHz, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and AppleCare. Purchased 7/8/14.

The one defect with it is three tiny spots on the screen, which are tiny physical scratches or dents. I can't seem to get a good photo, but these two illustrate the issue. Unless the screen has a solid colour and in practice unless the background is white the marks aren't really visible. With a white background, you can see one of the marks if you follow down the screen from the T button in the toolbar.

With that in mind, is there any interest? I'm in Auckland and would prefer to do pickup. I can package it in the box my new MBP was shipped in, includes power adapter of course.

Was about $2,600 new, not sure exactly how much to ask now though as it depends how much the marks on the screen matter to you.

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.

Is there a reason the defects can't be covered by the warranty?

I wasn't suggesting they are covered by warranty, just wanted people to be aware of the faults

Yep, just was wondering, but seems livisun has answered my question.

In saying that, I may be interested, but again depends on the price. The marks would probably annoy me since I'd always know they are there, but could look past the issue.

That's the problem for me, I can't avoid seeing them when I remember they are there. Having said that I often don't remember and wouldn't be upgrading if it wasn't for the 4k support, but you'd have to take it into account.
