Selling my trusty MBP - late 2013 model 2.3GHz, 16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD - still seriously fast and reliable.

 

Has Retina screen, 2x USB 3 ports, audio, 2x Thunderbolt, full size HDMI and SD card reader. Original box and charger in perfect condition.

 

I knocked it on the right-hand corner a few years ago (ugh!) but the ding doesn't effect the screen or any operation. I put a Moshi clip-on cover so that it wasn't noticeable.

 

Great workhorse laptop with good battery life - $1,000 ono Cheers, Mike

Just so you are aware, 15 inch macbooks from year 2011-2014 have a chance of getting GPU failure. My dad and uncle both had these issues and apple wiggle their way out of fixing it.

As much as I appreciate your concern @dryburn I guess all computers have a chance of a GPU failure, but the article you've linked to mentions mainly 2011 models, with possible problems up to early 2013. This one is Late 2013 with a different GPU - as far as I know there aren't any problems with this model. Sorry to hear about the issues your family have had.





Cheers,

Hi - just adding more detailed info about the MBP's system (it is capable of latest upgrades, but so far I haven't bothered on this machine).

Hi @Shapenz - battery cycles are stated as 671 (as below screenshot just taken). It sounds fairly high, but as you can see the condition is listed as 'Normal' and I get a solid 3.5 to 4 hours on battery - thanks.

 

 

 

As mentioned - will consider offers & happy to offer money back if not satisfied.
