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 also comes loaded with a fresh installation of the macOS High Sierra 10.13 (also compatible with an upgrade to Mohave 10.14) and with a free 12 month warranty which covers both parts and labour, for extra piece of mind.

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

Retina Display

The 15.4″ display of this MacBook Pro features over 5 million pixels. The pixel density is so high your eyes won’t be able to discern individual pixels. Now with a 2880 x 1800 native resolution, you can see more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. The Retina display also reduces glare while maintaining incredible color and quality. In fact, it has a 29 percent higher contrast ratio than a standard MacBook Pro display. IPS technology gives you a wide, 178-degree view of everything on the screen, so you’ll see the difference at practically any angle.
Quad-Core 4th-Gen Crystalwell Intel Core i7 Performance
The 4th-gen Crystalwell Intel Core i7 processor with a state-of-the-art 22-nanometer single-die microarchitecture in this MacBook Pro provides fast quad-core performance. Intel Hyper-Threading technology allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core. The quad cores can run at a stock speed of 2.5 GHz. The processor can be overclocked up to 3.7 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a 6MB L3 cache and 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM memory, this MacBook Pro can run professional applications like Aperture and Final Cut Pro with ease.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M Graphics (2GB)
The MacBook Pro combines the power of Intel Iris Pro Graphics with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics card for high graphical performance. With 2GB of GDDR5 memory, it has twice the video memory of the previous-generation NVIDIA graphics processor. So you see many more frames per second in 3D games and get greater speed and responsiveness for your HD video projects.
All Flash Storage
This MacBook Pro feels incredibly fluid and responsive. It’s all thanks to its PCIe-based flash storage. When you use apps like Final Cut Pro or Aperture, you can perform even the most demanding tasks right from your internal storage. You can keep all your important files with you, including large video and photo libraries. Flash doesn’t have any moving parts, which makes it reliable and quiet. And flash storage is extremely energy efficient, which means your MacBook Pro also has the ability to stay in standby mode for up to a month without having to be plugged in.
Long-Lasting Battery
The built-in lithium polymer battery provides up to 8 hours on a single charge (battery life may vary upon use) and gives you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles as well as up to 30 days of instant-on standby time. Which means you can put your MacBook Pro to sleep, and it’ll come back on instantly – after a day, a week, or even a month. With Power Nap, your MacBook Pro can continue to receive email and calendar invitations while it’s asleep. And when it’s connected to a power source, it can download software updates and make backups with Time Machine. So the next time you open your notebook, your MacBook Pro is updated and ready to go.
Thunderbolt 2
The new MacBook Pro features the next-gen Thunderbolt 2. It delivers twice the throughput, providing up to 20 Gbps of bandwidth to each external device. So you’re more than ready for the next generation of high-performance peripherals and displays. You can connect massive amounts of storage and add a PCI expansion chassis. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 12 external devices via Thunderbolt alone.
HDMI, USB 3.0, SDXC
The MacBook Pro with Retina Display also has dual USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port and an SDXC card slot, so you can build an entire professional studio with the MacBook Pro as its centerpiece.
802.11ac Wi-Fi
With an emphasis on mobile, the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is equipped with 802.11ac Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology. With AirPlay and Apple TV, you can wirelessly play video, show off photos, and enjoy music from your MacBook Pro on your widescreen TV. And when your MacBook Pro connects to an 802.11ac Wi-Fi base station, such as AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule, your wireless performance is up to three times faster.
Audio and Visual
For something so thin and light, the built-in speakers have a surprisingly wide dynamic range, an optimal balance and a crisp, expressive quality. Dual built-in microphones are great for when you want to be heard. If you’re making a FaceTime call, for example, the mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice instead of the noise around you.
Multi-Touch Trackpad and Backlit Keyboard
In Mac OS X, Multi-Touch is an essential part of how you interact with your Mac. Using realistic, intuitive gestures, you can switch between apps, navigate your content and get the most out of your desktop space. The MacBook Pro features a Multi-Touch trackpad with a large, all-glass button surface. So you can tap, pinch, swipe and click away comfortably. Thin and light, this notebook is designed to go anywhere, including places with less-than-stellar lighting. A built-in sensor detects changes in ambient light and adjusts the keyboard brightness automatically.

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.

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.

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.
