Feeler/FT/FS: 15" Matte MacBook Pro - great condition

Hello everyone, I'm posting this at MacNN as well as here.

So over the past year, my laptop has transitioned from being a laptop, to a desked laptop... and I've kinda talked myself into needing a bigger screen with more real-estate. So I'm looking to basically sell my laptop, to get a bottom of the line iMac without putting much money down.

My laptop is a great laptop in great condition... Since I bought it it has had the Marware palm rests, I've always used the RadTech keyboard cover, until recently when they started yellowing I had the RadTech Screen rubber things to make sure the screen spacing stayed even (rubber stops that were in the corner of the display so when you closed it, it closed even and tightly) ..

For the most part, it's been in a Spec Plastic case, so it's in amazing condition.


But it is almost 3 years old, I envy anyone who has a 3 year old metal laptop in absolute perfect condition... like I said I did use it as a laptop for 2 of those years, so it has random imperfections.

The first being the biggest, there is a scratch on the bottom that looks like a hair where it unfortunately had an encounter with a rivet on my jeans 3 days after I bought it.... freaked me out completely.

The rest, there are a couple of little hair line scratches, that look like someone just brushed it with a pencil or something, I would say 4 over the who laptop.... these I would have to point out to you before you would notice them.

The only major deformation of the computer, which I have NO idea why this happened as the computer has NEVER been dropped, when your looking down at the computer, directly above it, you can see a little reflection off to the left where above the express 34 slot has started pulling away from the edge of the plastic a bit... I don't know why, and I don't really think it's that obvious, it's definitely very minor.



So, that's my 500 word explanation of my computer. sorry, I let my parents use my camera, so I all I have right now is my iPhone, but I WILL take pictures this weekend of EVERYTHING to show everyone


It's a first generation MacBook Pro.

2.16GHz Core Duo
2GB dual channel ram
120GB 5400RPM Harddrive (3 month old Apple replacement)
DVD burner
umm... what else am I supposed to list? I know you guys know which computer this is... so you know what it comes with.


I have all of the original packaging, and it would come with everything included (including the remote)

Extras it would come with.

Leopard (and the install disk)
2 Magsafe power adapters (neither are the origional, both are only about 8 months old)
1 small incase bag sleeve.
Spec laptop cover
All the protective stuff listed above.
eSATA express 34 card

I would even be willing to throw in a really nice swiss army backpack (laptop bag) and even the original apple Bluetooth keyboard (white full size keyboard)


any thoughts? Any comments on the price? I would love to have any sort of feedback.

I would like to start at $1150 shipped or best offer, because I feel like I'm offering a great computer, with many accessories that could add up.

please ask any questions you have!

oh and the battery is in pretty rough shape, 569 cycles, at 66% health, but it still holds a 2 hour charge, so I haven't replaced it yet.

since this is a feeler, I'm going to just say you're going to have to come way down on the price to get any interest here. I personally wouldn't go over 800 for it. I would recommend ebay if you are looking foe the most for it.

Remember that as recently as last week, Apple was selling refurb MBP 2.2s for $1449.

I think you'll have to go well below that. I'm posting only because you indicated "feeler" and, well, that's an invitation for conjecture.

I'd aim for $950-1000.

thanks for all the replies! I guess this thread can be closed. i'm not going to sell it on here.

I listed it on craigslist for 1300 and had 6 calls and 7 e-mails, all willing to basically write me a check...

I'm sure you know this, but watch out for the scams.

Yup, thanks for the concern, I met with 2 of them today and showed them the computer. Most likely will be delivering it tomorrow.

advice: do the transaction at the bank. that way you can verify that the money is real.
