This rare discontinued 17 inch MacBook has been fully ASD tested and reconditioned by our team of Apple Certified Technicians to work straight from the box.

The Intel Quad Core i7 processor & Dual GPU make these MacBook Pro’s powerful tools for creative professionals, such as web designers, photographers and graphic designers working with applications such as Logic Pro X, DaVinci Resolve, Premier Pro, Abode suite, Lightroom, Final Cut X and Photoshop effortlessly.

They are in simply incredible condition and work superbly, supplied with a fresh installation of macOS Sierra 10.12 and a 12 month warranty, so you can buy with confidence.

We offer a wide range of solutions for storage / RAM configuration and our ACMT qualified technicians can also install older versions of OS X, should you require!

The base model is 8GB / 1TB HDD, but you can configure to your own requirements using the drop-down fields to increase the RAM or have a larger HDD or even have a SSD installed – its your choice!

If you need something even more niche than we are offering – such as having the optical drive removed and having both an SSD & a HDD – get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements.

As an added extra, if you purchase the SSD storage option, we will remove the existing Apple SuperDrive and replace it with the 500GB HDD, if you ask us to do so.

In addition, all purchases from MacBank are supplied with a full 20% VAT inclusive invoice.
