From a very reliable ebay retailer. I have purchased stuff from them in the past with no issues that weren't properly handled.

Is it worth it? Probably if you just need a basic laptop...

The seller probably imported a container of these to China (containers shipped to China are cheap), then used cheap China postal to ship to the bidders’ addresses.

ebay makes filling in specs imposible - the seller grabbed the wrong auto-specs

what they are selling is the standard config: 2.5ghz 4gb 500gb

Thanks hal, just ordered one for one of the entry level grandkids. If it works for that, even if we toss it next year, it'll be worthwhile.

More amiguity: there are pictures of an early 2012 MBP and also a late 2012.

For 2012, I thought there was only one release of the unibody models, "Mid-2012".

That's what this MD101LL/A model number corresponds to.

are you afraid that you might get a retina model instead?

The sale is for a used Apple MacBook Pro 13.3” Laptop MD101LL/A – Core i5 – 2.5Ghz – 4GB Ram – 500GB HD

trust me - I've bought from these people before

their messed-up listings is one reason they don't get high prices, but they are a solid operation. it's a feature, not a bug.

Good find. The price isn't a RYF, but it's good for that machine.

Easily upgradeable to 16GB RAM and an SSD or your choosing.

Note that it doesn't come with a power adapter.

That model year is the sweet spot for several DJ and music apps, inside parts are upgradable, optical drive can be pulled for 2nd hard drive.

I'm tempted to just have as a back up side grade if my current one @#$%& the bed.

Added him to favorite sellers just in case.

The late 2012 MBP has the retina display and no optical drive. I'm on one now. I was just noting that there's a picture of a MBP with an optical drive and one without.

That is probably what I would also use it for.

Looks like I snoozed and I loozed. Two questions if this ever comes up again.

1. It seems like this might have been a decent replacement for my wife's 2009 white Macbook, contingent upon the answer to...

2. Just how "banged up" are these things? Seller states This is a used item with minor case scratches/wear. This item may also contain case dents, minor discoloration, some larger case scratches and/or case dents.

If you're using it then you're not looking at how banged up it is.

you can't know the unknowable, but you can return the known if it's not up to snuff...
