I got a 2012 MacBook Pro Anons. Tons of ports. Customizable. I threw in 16GB ram, about to put in an SSD. Has a DVD drive I can swap out for more storage if I choose. God tier touchpad, old-school chiclet keyboard. Modern MacOS which is super comfy.

This thing is God tier anons. Who else sporting older MacBooks?

My 2015 MacBook Pro is also this tier.

Same here, swapped out the optical for a HDD and put Windows 10 on it. SSD and eGPU as well. I would like to upgrade to a Mini but waiting for a (hopefully) quad-core release.

>>65106443
God bless you with Windows 10. I tried boot camping and just couldn't take it. Linux runs almost flawlessly on this as well. Only issue is to usually manually install the broadcom wifi driver, which isn't a hassle because I have an ethernet port.

I used to have one of those, great machines to be honest, however the display is really bad when compared to later models. I sold mine and bought an 11'' because the pro is heavy as fuck to carry everyday.
Get an ssd asap, the stock hdd is terrible

>>65106443
You might as well get a 2012 quadcore model and upgrade the shit out of it because they will most likely never upgrade from the shitty 1.4ghz dualcore one

I thought about getting one. I had a thinkpad for a weekend to work on school shit while I was in Colorado in January. Returned it when I got home, felt like shit plastic. Plus, the disk drive kept popping off by itself.

The only problem in those is GPU, if it is not Intel HD 4000. It just shits itself after some time I think.

The way you're supposed to deal with Apple products is that you sell them after you're done using them for most of the price you initially paid.

While Android phones and Windows laptop quickly go to stupidly low prices after a few years Apple products retain value.
That way you can actually spend LESS money using Apple products if you are clever enough and you buy already used units rather than new ones.

It's important to have CERTIFIED refurbished, because then you can buy AppleCare+ which guarantees that Apple will fix anything bad that happens to the hardware.

In this case the offer you found and initally posted ITT is good but ask about the following:

Number of battery cycles. Those are cycles from completely charged off to completely charged up. Expect the durability of average battery to be around 1000 cycles. Anything close to that will need a replacement soon.

Ask why was the screen replaced. If the previous owner was stupid and broke it then it's fine, but some units have problems with peeling off the outer layer of the screen which looks plainly ugly and sometimes if user wasn't nice to the hinge it could have bent and caused screen to get scratched over time by keyboard and touchpad. Those two make buying that unit a bad idea.

If you are concerned about it then watch out for scratches on the edges of the case and backlight on the keyboard.


Buying from first hand users is ill advised because they are very autistic about the price. People that do this professionally are okay.

I haven't heard about anything like that for 2015 model.
2012-2013 units had worldwide recall.

Try to ask specifically what's the reason for the screen replacement.
If it was because outer layer peeling off or because keyboard/touchpad scrached the screen then you have 90% chance it's going to happen again, because
If those were problems with the display itself (graphical glitches/bad colour lines) then they shouldn't happen again.

2015 Retina MacBook Pro 13", I got it in 2015 and the only issue I've ever had with it was when I spilled a glass of water on it and it wouldn't turn on. I took it to the Apple Store and paid a retarded amount for them to fix it and when I got it back I thought it would basically be a new computer with none of my files but everything was replace except the harddrive, even the outer shell was replaced despite not having any damaged. So it was expensive (I wanna say $750?) but worth it instead of paying twice or three times that for a new model. I didn't want the 2016/2017 one, Apple dropped the ball HARD with those.

My only gripe is that I can't upgrade the internal storage or RAM. I got 500GB storage and 8GB RAM, which was a fucking mistake. My previous computer (2008 iMac) had like 2 GB that I upgraded to like 4 GB of RAM in the last year I had it and so to me 8 GB was a huge upgrade and 16 GB was uneccessary. The storage I can deal with since I have external hard drives.

I don't think they're newer models, I can't remember the last time Apple update the Air line. I feel like they've been slowly phasing them out and replacing them with the regular MacBook. Which is what makes Apple's decision to take away all of the ports on the MacBook Pro even more infuriating. If they already have 2 MacBook variants that only has 1 port, why downgrade the hardware of the Pro line so much? The iMac Pro is an upgrade from the regular one. They went fucking overkill on that. So why neuter the MacBook Pro line?
