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 a fresh installation of the MacOS High Sierra and with a free 12 month warranty which covers both parts and labour, for extra piece of mind.
The base model is 8GB / 120GB SSD, but you can configure to your own requirements using the drop-down fields to increase the RAM or have a larger SSD installed – its your choice! Please also note that the SSD that you select to install will be a new unit, not the old, pre-existing one 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 fitted, with 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.
|The system is powered by a quad-core 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 CPU with 3.5GHz Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 support. The computer is loaded with 1333 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-10600) memory, the original 5400rpm hard drive has been upgraded to a new Solid State Drive, giving superb read/write speed improvements. You’ll be able to connect to the Internet with ease via 802.11n Wi-Fi or wired Gigabit Ethernet. The MacBook Pro also features built-in Bluetooth, making it easy to use the system with wireless headphones, keyboard, mice, and other compatible peripherals. An ExpressCard/34 slot is available, allowing you to use compatible expansion cards with the system.|
Graphics are handled by a hybrid system that gives you the best of both worlds in regards to battery life and performance. The MacBook Pro will use an integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU for light tasks — such as web browsing and word processing. When more performance is needed — for video games, HD video playback, or the like — the system will switch over to the dedicated AMD Radeon HD 6770M. The Radeon features 1GB of fast GDDR5 memory, which translates into pretty awesome performance.
The computer features a comfortable backlit chiclet-style keyboard, which features space between each key for improved accuracy and comfort when typing. It also sports a glass Multi-Touch trackpad with a clickable design. Rather than having a separate button for mouse clicks, the entire surface of the pad is clickable. This increases the active surface area, and allows you to quickly click, even if your finger is near the top of the trackpad.
What’s more, the smooth surface fully supports Multi-Touch gestures — you can tap the trackpad with one finger to click, with two fingers to right click, scroll through documents using two fingers, pinch to zoom, navigate through Safari or iPhoto with three-finger left and right swipes, or use two fingers to rotate a photo or PDF.

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.
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.
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.
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.
