Condition of this unit is Grade B – only minor signs of wear and tear on the outer casing, in superb operational condition.
These MacBook’s are fully ASD tested and refurbished by our team of Apple Certified Technicians, with a fresh installation of Apple macOS High Sierra, to work straight from the box and come with a 6 month warranty, so you can buy with confidence.
These MacBook’s are in excellent operational condition, with just minor wear on the external plastic casing. They have been upgraded to the maximum allowance of RAM – 8GB, have had a new SSD installed and had the macOS (Apple operating system) upgraded to the latest version – High Sierra 10.13.
All in all, a cracking MacBook that is ideal for someone looking for a cheap laptop that will work well, whether streaming video content, web browsing, etc. It is ideal as a first MacBook – it’s cheap, yet fast and has the latest operating system installed, giving access to all of the latest applications from the Apple App Store.
Please note that the SSD installed will be new, not the old, pre-existing one or a refurbished one, to give your MacBook Pro that extra “works like new” touch.

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:
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.
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).
