15" Mid-2015 Macbook Pro Retina, Quad-Core Intel i7, 512 GB, 16 GB RAM, Intel Iris + AMD GPU

This laptop has been with me since 2015. It has had quite a life. Notably, it:
- Wrote software for apps that won prizes in 4 different hackathons
- Written hundreds of thousands of lines of code in multiple programming languages
- Holds an MS and BS degree in computer science
- Has traveled to 9 states and 3 countries to be used for presenting 26 difference conference talks
- Used for exploiting a number of software/web vulnerabilities to win swag from bug bounty programs

And much more. I am happy (as the owner) to jump on a Google Meet call and share more of its story.


What's included:
- Macbook Pro running latest macOS (Mojave)
- Apple Original, Undamaged Power Cable + Extension

What's NOT included:
- Original packaging
- The opportunity to buy 100 Bitcoin in 2013 for $25
- The entire depository's worth of gold bullion from Fort Knox, KY

Damage Description

* No repairs have ever had to be made
* Getting rid of because just purchased a new 15" Macbook Pro

Description of wear and tear:
- Small (hard to see without being close and looking right at) worn down/dinged metal in 1 corner of casing from dropping backpack a couple of feet with the Macbook in it in 2015 shortly after purchasing
- Small chip in end of display swivel bracket next to the fan entrance (also very hard to see and have had no issues from it)
- Two small, smooth (not rigid) indentions in the bottom of the case (not sure what these came from, but have happened over the years)

I have seen no issues in the computer's operation from this wear and tear in daily operation of the machine for the last 4 years.

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

What's the processor look like, and how's the battery cycle count?

The processor is a quad-core Intel i7, I think IIRC it’s 2.4 GHz. With hyper-threading, it can run 8 concurrent threads.

Last I checked, the battery health according to iStats was ~80%, several hundred cycles. I’ve already re-imaged it, so I can’t easily go back in and check without setting it up again.

When I used it, I would often run multiple Chrome windows, Spotify, my email client (Spark), Slack, and developer tooling (IDEs, terminal, etc.). When I’m using it like this, the battery will run for ~4-5 hours. When I’m just browsing, reading, or not doing anything too intense, it probably runs ~6-7.

Is the cycle count under 400? Would you take $850

Would you be able to talk on Google Meet later tonight about it?

I’m looking to upgrade my my 13” i5 2014 so this seems like it fits the bill for what I’m looking for.

Can you please upload pic for the About this Mac section? Seems a bit weird that you have left that out.
