This MacBook Pro is ASD tested and refurbished by our own in house Apple Certified Technician (ACMT) to make sure that it will work straight out of the box.

It is supplied loaded with the MacOS High Sierra and with a free 12 month warranty which covers both parts and labour, for extra piece of mind.

Please also note that the SSD supplied in this refurbished MacBook Pro will be a new unit, not the old, pre-existing HDD or a refurbished one, to give your unit that extra “works like new” touch.

Also, as you may be aware, these Macbook Pro units suffer from Graphics card failure, due to a manufacturing defect in the lead free solder used in their original production, which can crack over time and cause the GPU to overheat and fail. Apple ran a recall programme to rectify this, which expired in Dec 2016.

As a matter of course, we run a similar programme to Apple, in that all of these models, that we refurbish, have a new GPU fittedwith new solder that will not be affected by the issue. This will give you confidence that the MacBook Pro you purchase from us will give you years of trouble free service

All purchases from MacBank are supplied including 20% VAT in the price – invoice supplied with every purchase.

Product Information

The MacBook Pro MC371LL/A is powered by a 32 nm, dual-core 2.4 GHz Intel “Core i5” I5-520M processor, with dedicated 256k level 2 cache for each core and an 3 MB shared level 3 cache. This system also supports “Turbo Boost” — which “automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload” up to 2.93 GHz for this model — and “Hyper Threading” — which allows the system to recognise four “virtual cores” or “threads.”

It is configured with 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) the old Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive has been removed and replaced with a new Solid State Drive and has dual graphics processors — a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M with 256 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory and Intel HD Graphics with 256 MB of RAM shared with the system – that MacOS automatically switches between for better graphics performance and better battery life, respectively, depending on application use.

Tthis model has an LED-backlit 15.4″ widescreen TFT active-matrix “glossy” display (1440×900 native resolution) and can also supports an external display, up to 2560×1600 resolution.

Connectivity includes AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet, a Firewire “800” port, two USB 2.0 ports, optical digital/analog audio in/out, a “Mini DisplayPort” that supports an external display at 2560×1600 (it also passes an audio signal), and an SD card slot.

What is an SSD and why do we supply them with every system?


FactorDifference
Access Time (amount of time required to find your data).An SSD is 190% faster.
ReliabilityAn SSD is 120% more reliable.
Energy Savings An SSD has 100% lower power consumption. (Longer battery life).
Backup TimeSSDs on average are 110% faster to backup.

 

 

We no longer supply Hard Disk Drives (HDD) storage and only install Solid State Drives (SSD).
The reason for this is that is that Apple has introduced a new file saving system called APFS, with the latest macOS High Sierra, which is:
Designed specifically for Solid State Drives.
– Optimizes data storage for increased speed.
SSDs can access all data storage locations simultaneously. An HDD cannot do this.
An HDD just like a vinyl player uses its needle to play your song an HDD uses a needle to read your data. An SSD doesn’t need a needle as it has access to everything instantly. APFS scatters your data across your drive for efficiency with SSDs, however, this has the adverse effect with HDDs and dramatically reduces performance and progressively worsens over time.
Because of this, we stopped supplying any products that have macOS High Sierra with HDD storage a long time ago. All of these products have the old HDD removed and an SSD installed to replace it. Benefits of this are:
– Improved reliability with no physical wear from moving parts.
– Improved performance at 4x faster with no reduction in disk speed over time.
– Increased longevity of your Mac with the use of upgraded current technology.

Battery Life & Condition


During the assessment stage of our system we use a measure we call the 80% rule. This rule is our boundary for battery replacement. Our technicians look at the full charge capacity of the laptop vs the design capacity as well as cycle count. If this falls below what we regard as less than 80% of the original battery life we fit the system with brand new battery.

How long will my battery last?

We anticipate that the minimum battery life of your system will be above 5h of general usage.

Please note this is not guaranteed as all users use their laptops in different ways. This figure is an average taken using a wide range of systems from different years.

 

Condition Grades


 

A


Systems classified as grade A we regard as being as good as new. These systems show only the minor signs of use on the external casing. All screens are checked and free of any inconsistencies or imperfections.

 

B


Our B grade condition systems will include minor visible cosmetic wear. This could include cosmetic imperfections such as scratches, scuffs or dents to the body. None of the issues interfere with the functionality of the system.

 

C


Anything we consider as grade C has clearly visible cosmetic wear. This includes deeper scratches and/or dents in the casing. Screens may also include imperfections such as dead pixels or blemishes and if applicable this is clearly stated.

If you’re budget conscious a C grade system can be the ideal solution for those looking to save and still have all the benefits and functionality of the Mac.

 

All systems provided come in 100% full working order and with our industry leading warranty. The conditions we describe below are only in relation to the cosmetic appearance of our machines. We never supply systems with technical faults unless clearly stated in the condition description. When pricing a system the condition grade is an attributing factor and a reduction of price will be seen on lower grades.
