MacBook,12-inch 2017, 1.2/3.0 GHz m3, 256GB SSD 16GB RAM - Mint

This is a great machine. I had an MB 12" with I7, 16Gb, 512 GB disk which I gave to my son. I had picked this one up and I like it better than the i7!! This machine seems like it is smother in transition between apps/browser tabs/etc. In my experience, with today's processors, memory is key. I've heard that the MB was developed with the m3 and optimized for it, then the I5 and i7 were added after the fact. But who knows...

Selling because I bought a 2018 MB Air with i5, 16GB, 512GB disk. Like it, but this MB with the m3 -seems- a hair faster(!). IMO.

Memory Cycle Count 34.
Still under basic Apple warranty (not AppleCare+) until 2/11/19.

MB's with configurations like mine are on Apple Refurbished now for $1,269.00, or, with tax, for $1,378.69

All devices must be fully functional and meet our criteria for sale.

No - thanks

Dec 24, 2018 - 02:16 PM

900$ ?

- Dec 26, 2018 - 11:51 AM

Just curious -- you say it's never been available through apple refurb, but why does the box say Apple Certified Refurbished at the bottom of the box?

I've been found out! I should have said that configuration is only -very- rarely available. :-) . However, even that statement is a bit bogus. My config is -now- on Apple Refurbished for $1,269.00 (plus tax).

Sorry for the confusion

Not to be an ass - but shouldn’t you disclose plainly that this is a refurbished machine?

Bill N. Seller

-IMO- a refurbished, ie, Apple inspected, etc, used machine, is more attractive than a random used machine. Your mileage may differ.

Certainly, if you feel there is skullduggery involved here, don't buy the machine. Oh. I'm "wngoju" on Ebay. Check my feedback...

- Dec 27, 2018 - 10:09 AM

That’s a good point. Hadn’t thought of it from that perspective. Well... I’m keeping my eye on this machine (in a good way).

This looks like a decent machine- it's gold though, correct? Pictures make it look gray (but I might be mistaken). thanks

It's gold. New photo added to end of photos w/ better color. As you probably know, there is Gold, and Rose Gold. Rose gold is almost pink. Gold is nicely understated IMO.

Jan 04, 2019 - 10:52 AM

thank you for the reply and additional picture. It does look pretty good, I've seen few in person. I'm waiting for my '18 Air to sell. Once it does, assuming this is still available, I'll reach back out to you to arrange purchase.

here's my add btw:

Urgi S: Thx for the note. Y, a lot of Mac usage patterns work much better with 16G memory v 8.

Jan 05, 2019 - 12:11 PM

I agree- I have a 16GB quad core mac mini that's great

Jan 05, 2019 - 07:08 PM

Please would you accept 900?

Jan 06, 2019 - 04:54 AM

I am ready to pay, just hoping you will reduce the price to 900 and I will pay immediately

Osagie E. - no, but thanks

Hi Bill- just circling back here. My MacBook Air sold, but the funds are tied up for a few days until PayPal/the buyer can verify everything looks good. It should only be another day or two- then I'll purchase your retina Macbook. Thanks in advance, and sorry for the delay
