I'm interested in purchasing this Macbook Pro advertised on another site.

Condition 10 (not a scratch)
Early 2013
2.7ghz i7
16gb Ram
512 SSD
Intel HD graphics 4000 VRAM (Dynamic, Max-1024 MB , NVIDIA PCie GeForce GT65M w/1GB DDRS Memory
Apple Care through 2-2016

What would be a good price?

PS: I would use this for Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture, Phocus, and Photo Mechanic.

Thanks!

I'd use ebay for price similar systems, I believe you can also see finished bids.

This is the February 2013 higher end model with 2.7 i7, 16gb of ram, 512SSD, GT650 I personally wouldn't pay more than $1750 for this older release. According to this (https://support.apple.com/kb/sp669?locale=en_US) retailed for $2800.

----------

BTW they're on eBay B.I.N. used for $1600 to mint condition $1900.
They're trending on eBay for 1799.99. Good luck.

Did you look at Apple refurbs? For $1989 you can get a newer (late 2013) version of this with 750M graphics.

But perhaps most important with a refurb is a full Apple warranty, which will last beyond the remaining Apple Care on this used one (and even more important, you can add your own Apple Care from Amazon or B&H to this refurb if you want further protection ... a used one you cannot).
