Hey,

I know somebody, who wants to sell his macbook pro 17 inch. He said, he bought his mac exacly 1 year ago. Now I'd like to know which model this is..
I can find a lot of different models online, I don't know which one this is.

Second thing, is there anyone who knows how much it cost 1 year ago and what would be a good price to buy it second hand (almost not used).

Thanks a lot :)


Joren

I guess it depends on the condition, what spec he got etc. Also compare to what a new one would cost you and the pro and cons with going second hand are such as warranties etc.

In the UK the current 17in cost is £1899, previous generation was about £1799. A local shop is selling one of the previous generation models as end of line for £1349 (£450 off the original price).

Used 17in core 2 Duo, 2GB 160MB models sell for between £650 and £700
and core 2 duo, 4GB, 500GB for about £1150

You can generally tell what model it is by the time period in which it was bought but in case it wasn't the current model at the time, you can use this:

Menu (Apple logo in corner) -> About this Mac -> More Info -> Hardware Overview (Model Identifier) will tell you exactly which model/revision you have.

For example: Mine is MacBookPro4,1 so look for something of that format.
