    I'm looking to buy a used 15 macbook pro with the following specs:

    - 15-inch Mid 2010 MBP with 1680 x 1050 resolution antiglare screen
    - Intel Core i5 2.4 GHz processor
    - 8 GB of 1067 MHz DDR3 RAM
    - 320 GB Hard drive
    - Mac OS X Lion (10.7) installed

    The computer is still under it's 1 year warranty that expires Oct 21, 2011…AppleCare can still be purchased.

    What should i check before buying it and also do you think 1350 canadian is a fair price, it is in perfect condition and comes with
    Has 181 cycles and comes with a tucono case.

    Thanks for all the help

    That seems like a lot of battery cycles for a 2010 model. What would the equivalent model go for in the Apple refurb store? I'd take that price and reduce it by 20% to see how this used one compares.

    Yes its a fair price. As far as the battery cycles go it still is a pretty new battery.

    NO 181 cycles is not much. I bought my 2010 in Jan and it has 208 cycles.
