i see Nigerians don't like to read . . .
Like my point stated earlier . . i'll rather go for post -2012 macbook pro adding some cash than his pre-2012 macbook
why?
because even the post-2012 macbook pro 13" murder his pre-2012 macbook pro 15"
i hope you are aware than a core-i5 processor manufactured in 2015 will murder even a core-17 processor manufactured in 2010/2011
That was & is my basis for judgment . . These processors and specs get upgraded every yr . . to the extent that a latest 13" comes with all the perks an old-school 15" won;t give you e.g. Video RAM & No. of threaded cores etc

Y'all should go back and read again !!

Did u bother to read my post at all or u just skimmed through. Pls go back and re-read.and to correct the lies you said i told.

here goes one:

Late 2013 macbook pro retina below the $1000 mark . . with 256 GB ssd and 8GB RAM

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-MacBook-Pro-13-RETINA-Core-i5-2-4-8GB-256SSD-LATE-2013-MINT-/221801819048?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item33a46b2ba8

This is another for $845
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-MacBook-Pro-RETINA-13-Late-2013-2-4GHz-i5-4GB-Ram-128GB-SSD-/171822159573?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item28016616d5

Based on the current exchange rate which floats around N199 to N215 per dollar depending on your bank, cos Stanbic charges 199. something per dollar . . FCMB around 214 . . . we still don't even get to the N200,000 naira benchmark . . . and
for the 1st one, about N210,000 thereabout, so I am accurate . . with my data

Lets head over to the official Apple's US store: http://store.apple.com/us/buy-mac/macbook-pro
Base model goes for $1299 (as against my earlier misqoute of $1099) and even at that . . it's the newer unboxed version . . goes for 8 GB RAM and and upgradeable SSD


In summary, It's your item and you can put any price you want . . I am only saying for that specs, your price is quite up north !!!
That's why I referenced dazekid's post . . just because it's Apple, we have that mentality that it must be a killer-price . . or pocket-drainer. Nope !!! If u had gone through my post well, I said . .

I'll rather lavish 200k - 210 k on a post-2012 model, than 180k or even 160k on a pre-2012 model . . and you said no post-2012 model can be gotten for about 210k and I just showed u 2 examples from today's eBay listing . . .

As for shipping, are you shipping via container or RORO? We know the drill, on or off nairaland . . On nairaland here, many ppl offer that service for not even up to 8k (considering the poor exchange rate) to have it shipped to ur doorstep (depending on weight) and the mac is superlight . . .e.g mikkyangel, balogunsam, chinosxl . . so don't make it look like you are paying another 100 or 200 usd for shipping . .

we all have contacts abroad who send it to us via mass-shipping !!!

p.s.: i am not hating on you, afterall i wished you happy sales earlier !!!

Your links are for Macbook Retina 13 and not 15, also the processor is core i5.

The price of what I posted is not firm, besides i had expected you to post cheaper links for the model of the item i listed for sale.

I have friends that prefer the Macbook Retina and I know guys that like the old Macbook Pro non retina 17". You prefer the Retina and the newer model, that is your choice.

You points are valid when you can post the same model of what I listed for sale at a price far cheaper than the links listed earlier in my post.

Makavele,

I posted a Macbook Pro non Retina for sale which is negotiable, I believe the asking price is not bad consdering the present dollar rate and I sincerely believe that a neatly used with no issues of the same model goes for less than $650 anywhere.

I just checked ebay the cheapest today for the same spec is $680 thats like 141k excluding shipping and clearing.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/15-4-MacBook-Pro-Late-2011-MD318LL-A-2-2GHz-Intel-Core-i7-500GB-4GB-Warranty-/111692669555?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1a0166e273

The same goes for $610 on amazon but the seller says the screen hinge has a crack on it.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B005CWJ1DI/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

The spec of what I posted is slightly different for the same model.
Macbook pro 15" non retina comes with native resolution of 1440-by-900 Resolution but what I posted comes with resolution of 1680-by-1050 and the battery cycle is 230 which is very good. Stock HDD is 500gb, mine is 750gb. Excellent Class 'A' fully functional condition. Case shell is Best Class 'A' cosmetic classification with no cracks, no dents, some small scratch, and very clean. LCD screen is Best Class 'A' cosmetic classification with no visible scratch and high contrast.

I have equally used same Macbook Air, Macbook Pro non retina 15" and Macbook Pro Retina 15" 2012 and 2013 models (16gb ram, 512gb ssd).
1. You can't compare Macbook Air and Macbook Pros; they are not the same.
2. Macbook Pro non retina and Macbook Pro retina are also not the same.
3. Macbook Pro retina is not easily upgradable - you can't upgrade the RAM and even
regular SSD will not fit (Note 480gb OWC Mercury Electra SSD costs $220 and regular SSD of the same size costs about $170)
4. Macbook Pro non retina are still expensive because;
a. Apple stopped manufacturing the model in late 2012.
b. Ram is upgradable.
c. HDD is upgradable.
d. You can use two HDD on the same laptop if you wish.

There are other stuff you mentioned that are not true;
1. You can't get late 2012 Macbook non retina (MacBook Pro MD104LL/A 15-Inch Laptop} for 180k, please show me the link.
2. You can't also get post 2012 macbook Pro Retina 15 not 13 for 200/210k as mentioned.
Note also;
1. External 1TB ssd HDD , hope you know the price
2. Ram are also not cheap 16gb Ram (2x8gb) cost $100.

Lastly needs are different, some buy for gaming (Graphic guys) while some strictly for high demanding applications (Programmers/Networks Engineers). The former will look at the graphic card Ram while the latter will not.
