Worth it! check out my review
I got my laptop around a week ago. I was waiting to use it a little bit to see how it worked and then give my review.
I am a computer science student and I was looking for 4 features in the new computer that I'd buy. 1. It had to be a macbook, because I had a windows before and I wanted to switch. 2. It had to be fast. 3. It had to suit my budget. 4. It had to at least look barely used.
This Macbook MC516LL/a has the four features. When I opened the box I noticed that the Mac was in perfect conditions. no dents at all and just few unnoticeable scratches (nothing you should feel disappointed about) . I looked up a lot of white macs and I was about to settle for the b class which contains dents and scratches, until I found this ad (a class). the only thing that might not look totally fine is the bottom, but still it is something that you barely show and it also dont have dents,it is just old (but it does not affect the look of the rest). When I turned it on I set everything up from scratch, which is great because you put your own information, and it worked smoothly.
I was used to having a slow pentium processor DELL, which was just old, and when I tested this one, I was amazed by the speed. The OS operating system is just the best. easy to handle and fast. it's just simple. I do not have regrets regarding having switched from Windows to OS.
Regarding the money, I feel like I pay a fair price. All the other ads had laptops with worst body conditions for almost the same price. I feel like it was worth it comparing the price to the product I received. Apple products are usually ever-lasting and just to protect it from future damage I recommend to buy it a case that will also add your style.
To sum up, I am satisfied with the product, and I hope my review helped you.Read full review

Better than ever!
My last new Mac was a bondi blue iBook about 10 years ago. It was awesome, and I was in love. That one met it's demise at the paws of a cat and a glass of milk. The mid-2010 MacBook is even better (first order of business is a keyboard skin!). It's my new best friend. Standard configuration has plenty of speed and hard drive space to keep me happy. This is the first computer I've ever had where the standard RAM was actually adequate. The programs are fabulous and intuitive. The laptop itself is lovely to look at yet understated at the same time. There's still plenty of room to upgrade if you want to as well, not to mention all the bags, skins, keyboard protectors, etc. to customize to your own taste. The only downside I can see is the battery is internal and not meant to be replaced by the user but taken to an authorized Apple Tech when it needs replacement. Not a bad trade off for 10 hours of battery time though, and I'm sure some of us will try the battery replacement on our own anyway. I was lucky enough to get a nice one used for a good price, but even at the off the shelf $999 this machine is well worth it.Read full review

Excellent service and response
The company exceeded my expectations. Was expecting the computer after Christmas, it was received a day or two before the big day. Computer did not work properly, contacted them, they had me return it and they made it right quickly. Thanks good folks! Yes, I would buy from them again.

Very clean, no crud on the keyboard. Came with OSX 10.10 and runs fine w/ 2 Gb RAM, Battery works fine
Very pleased with this purchase. I provide tech support and am very computer knowledgeable. This machine runs fine. Computer starts up fast, shuts down fast and software runs fast. Very pleased that it came with OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) preinstalled. WI-Fi works fine. All surfaces were clean, keyboard was clean and no obvious signs of wear. A few very minor spots of wear, but nothing to complain about. I would have no problem with giving this to a family member or friend. Shipping was very fast. Ordered on a Tuesday and it was at my door on Friday at noon. Screen is bright. Battery works fine, although I have not timed how long it lasts. It came with a genuine Apple power supply for charging the computer. Have not encountered any shortcomings. Thank you Tekdealswho.

This laptop is one terrific value. It was expertly refurbished, and runs perfectly. As an added bonus, when I ordered it, I was told that it would be delivered in about a week, but it was delivered in only 3 days!
