Apple MacBook Pro 15" anti-glare Intel Core i7 2.3 GHz 750 MB 6 GB RAM
This is a MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.3 GHz 15-Inch (Early 2011) in excellent condition. Features the "Sandy Bridge" 2.3 GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (2820QM), with four independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, an 8 MB shared level 3 cache, 6 GB of 1333 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-10600), a 750 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, an 8X DL "SuperDrive", dual graphics processors -- an AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory and an Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics processor that shares 384 MB of memory with the system -- and an integrated FaceTime HD webcam. This is the matte screen a.k.a "high-resolution antiglare" edition. Features ethernet, 2xUSB, Thunderbolt, and FW800 connections, plus a802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and an SD card reader.
This machine was used almost exclusively as a home office machine, i.e. it wasn't transported very often, thus it is in excellent condition barring a few minor scratches on the underside which I have attempted to photograph.
The battery has just been replaced with a brand new NuPower 78-watt battery, which should mean up to 7-8 hours on a single charge. Note that this machine has 6 GB of RAM, upgraded from the factory 4 GB. The drive has been wiped and OS 10.6 (which, let's face it, was the best OS Apple ever released) reinstalled. Configuration has not been completed so this is exactly like this machine came from the factory. After configuration, you can upgrade to OS 10.6.8, or if you like, upgrade further to Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra etc.
- 10.6.6 install media
- original power supply
- soft case (original box not included)
Please note that this is a US manufactured model (see photos) but I have used this machine in the UK for years without problems, and will supply you with an adaptor plug (pictured).
In preparing this machine for sale I have been reminded of what a quality piece of workmanship it is. I have half a mind to hang onto it so buy it before I can change my mind!
CEX currently has one of these with only 4 GB RAM on sale for £635. I can't post the link, but search for product sku SLAPAPPMBP82011B, or MacbookPro8,2.
