[Sold]: Macbook Pro Retina 15" (2.3GHz, 16GB, 480GB SSD), £500


I’m selling my laptop due to upgrade. Much prefer to sell it here rather than deal with eBay, postage etc.

It’s a mid-2012 Retina Macbook Pro. Specs:

  • 15.4" Retina screen
  • Quad-core Intel Core i7 2.3GHz with 6MB shared L3 cache
  • 16GB RAM (configured upgrade from Apple on purchase)
  • New battery (fitted by Apple last summer, 154 charge cycles since then)
  • 480GB SSD (an OWC Mercury Aura, upgraded 2014)

Originally £1,959 when I bought it. The battery replacement was £159 and the hard drive upgrade was $299.

Still a great machine… but I am a slave to Apple and their new shiny models!

Great condition, although a couple of the plastic feet have come off (£2.99 on eBay to replace, if you’d like)

Receipt for battery replacement May 2016 (35.5 KB)

Will accept £500 and can deliver within SE23.

For comparison, see prices for this model on eBay


I know someone who would love that, but hard times. He will be heart broken lol.


Not a bad price Chris but I am allergic to Apples! Ill ask around…


Hi Chris - I’m be interested in taking this off your hands for my Mum


Cool! I have sent you a PM.


Hi Chris - this is perfect timing. I am in need of a new one as I am still chugging away on my old white MacBook brick.

Can collect or pay for it this eve.



Hi Luke. I’m meeting @MattFH today so he can have a look at it. If he chooses not to take it I’ll post back on here again to let you know it’s available.


Thanks v much


Hi Chris, I might be interested too, will see if it gets reposted. What size screen is it?


15.4". Just updated the title to make this clear


Dammit, I assumed it would be taken by Matt and didn’t register my interest last night…


If Matt doesn’t take it, let’s turn this topic into a mini auction. I underestimated the interest this laptop would get (and probably priced it way too low!)


@Luke30, @dunebuggy, @Dave thanks for the interest but @MattFH has now agreed to take the laptop.
