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 latest Mac OS High Sierra and with a free 12 month warranty which covers both parts and labour, for extra piece of mind.

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.

How much memory do I need?

Memory or ‘RAM’ is the short-term memory of your computer. Anything currently running on the computer will be using your RAM. Every safari page, word document and mail application uses a small amount. More advanced users who use professional applications will require more RAM.

Here is what we recommend:

How much storage do I need?

The amount of storage you need depends on what you plan on storing on your system. For non-professional users, we recommend 500GB as a healthy amount. Having a good amount of storage allows for plenty of space for photos, videos, documents and other data you will collect over the lifetime of the system. If you’re not an avid user of your computer, then 250-320GB can be all you need.

For professional users, we recommend increasing that amount. Once you start loading your music, samples, photos and videos, you can find that your drive will fill up fairly quickly if you’re not careful. Not to mention when you start creating projects, producing or editing and you add all the data associated. At minimum 500GB is recommend and if budget allows 1TB is ideal. In certain cases more may be necessary, if you’re not sure please contact our team.

What is an SSD?

An SSD or solid state drive is the next generation in storage. They are twice the speed of a conventional HDD (Hard Disk Drive). They also  contain no moving parts and are therefore safer and less likely to fail.

Why you would pick an SSD over a HDD;

  • – Faster load time of the system and files.
  • – High bandwidth (Allows you too load more at once).
  • – More responsive system (Applications will load quicker and perform actions faster).

Why you would pick a HDD over an SSD;

  • – More cost effective (SSDs can be expensive, especially at higher volumes).
  • – Larger sizes (You can get much larger HDDs than you can SSDs).
  • – Speed is not required (If you only use your computer for basic functions such as email or watching films the speed isn’t needed).
