Low battery cycle count / Discrete GPU / High spec configuration / Good condition

Hi, I'm selling my 2012 MacBook Pro 15" Retina (Identifier: MacBookPro10,1). I bought this for myself, used, in 2012 and I used it from 2012-2016. Since then it sat in a box and it's time to sell it to someone who can use it.

This is a high spec configuration - this has the 2.7 GHz i7 CPU, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, and the discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 650M GPU with 1GB VRAM.

This computer is in good condition. There is a small dent on the bottom casing that existed when I purchased this computer in 2012. It has not affected the performance of the computer and it is only noticeable if you look for it. Aside from that there are some minor blemishes on the exterior of the case that are visible in the pictures. The inside of the computer looks basically new. The hinge is still very strong.

Comes with original charger which is also in good condition, with extension cord.

This computer is wiped and currently has macOS 10.12.6.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

Hi Basem - The cycle count is 337. Low! And no, original packaging is not included - this computer will be shipped in a dedicated laptop shipping box with adequate packaging, but not the original box. Thanks.

Hi Basem - The UPS laptop shipping box I got for this was kind of pricey so I am thinking about that. How about $500?

Price decreased.

Sean, What's the maximum resolution on this laptop? Does it have an optical drive too?

Sean C. Seller
- Nov 30, 2020 - 04:53 PM

Hi Jacob - This is a 15" Retina MacBook Pro, and all such models have a 2880 x 1800 native screen resolution (this is a High DPI density display). These computers don't have optical drives, but you could always use an external one over USB, they are cheap. Thanks.

One note about screen resolutions - macOS displays the interface elements at 2x size, so they appear proportionate with non-Retina displays, and the size of the elements on screen can be scaled up or down in the system settings.

Nov 30, 2020 - 05:49 PM

If you do $440, I'll take it off your hands right now

Nov 30, 2020 - 06:03 PM
