Awesome Product! Great value for the money!!!!
I love this Macbook Pro because it has a 17" screen. I have added more ram to this unit and everything runs faster. I would buy it again from this seller.

Great machine everything the seller said it was.
I wanted to switch to apple products from other pc.I bought a iMAC and wanted a laptop for mobility. I also wanted the 17 inch and waited until i could get a used one that was almost mint . I thought i found one and took a chance. I got very lucky this one is beyond anything i was expecting.

Even two years later this laptop is still the best mac portable!!!
The biggest and best laptop offered by apple. If you upgrade the ram to either 8gb or 16gb and put an ssd in it then it will absolutely fly! starts up in ~15 seconds with a samsung 840 ssd. programs open instantly and the wifi is the best in any laptop i have used to date. A little heavy but still very lightweight considering it is a 17 inch laptop!

Beauty + Functionality = Value: My “New” MacBook Pro 17". Gratitude galore!
We are very pleased with this purchase. Surprised was I to acquire it; thus, thanks to my benefactor. I required the larger size for what I do as a music composer/arranger, and as a designer of bulletins, programs, and presentations, etc., and was saddened that Apple had discontinued this size, so a “USED” computer was the only logical resolution to that thorny and unanticipated challenge.<br><br>I am delighted with the size, the speed, the screen quality of the 17" MacBook Pro. This computer accompanies me, even at church, for notes, for scriptural references, for overhead presentations, and for whatever else is requested. As for presentations with the Keynote application — similar but infinitely superior to PowerPoint —, although I have the capability to connect the computer to an overhead projector, this 17" monitor can be effectively used as the screen itself. My 24" iMac also serves this purpose with flying colors (no pun intended).<br><br>My sons and sons-in-laws, daughters and daughters-in-law, and now, even my wife (but no wife-in-law) have basically the same quality model, except smaller (15" and 13" MacBook Pros and a MacBook Air), so, one might say we are a Mac Family! Only one son has not, as yet, taken the proverbial plunge. Even one son-in-law, a computer guru, has moved to the “light,” using PCs only when absolutely necessary. And we have iPads as well, and iPhones, where feasible.<br><br>The list of what I dislike about the computer is very short:<br><br>• The scroll direction is reversed, compared to former models. Were I to know what might be done to remedy that “problem,” and then to actually put that knowledge to use, that would be a good thing to witness and utilize. I would be even more appreciative were it to transpire. Even so, I believe that to be a software situation, not associated with the computer’s functionality.<br><br>• The battery life is shorter than I had anticipated, with no way of inserting a second charged battery in its place as the charge has been depleted.Read full review
