The M3 Pro MacBook Pro has landed!

This is the MBP I mentioned in an earlier thread:

[forums.macresource.com]

It's an MBP M3 Pro, 18GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Space Black. I bought it used used on eBay for $1,400, with 4 battery cycles, and some very minor external damage (basically, a scrape on a corner of the base about the size of a match head). So far, it's working fine (minus some weirdness with Migration Assistant, but I've run into that kind of thing before). The keyboard feels very good; the only downside is that the Space Black keyboard shows finger oil a lot more than a lighter color would-not a biggie, but noticeable

Due to the family emergency discussed up thread, I was out of town when FedEx first attempted to deliver it, but got back just in time for the last (3rd? 4th?) delivery attempt, at 10:30 at night.

The next step is find and buy a good Thunderbolt dock. And then I need to sell the 2TB SSD, 16GB RAM M1 Mini. These are good problems to have!

Edit: Oh, and I've been using it for about an hour, and the power is down only 4%! I'm loving it!

I think you've got that backward. More than likely twice the cost and half the specs.



Hurts like a bastid...

Thanks, yes, 14”. It’s replacing both the M1 Mini, and a 2015 13” MBA.

Great machine. Might not need a thunderbolt dock tho. Has lots of ports, and USBC hubs are very functional.
