    A classmate is offering to sell me his Early MacBook Pro Retina 15" for $300.

    The keyboard is sticky. (I would told that it's from a spill over a year ago.)

    Apple Diagnostics show no problem.

    I also ran Engine Heaven and Benchbench on it and it has no problem with those either.

    I remove the bottom case and check the all liquid submersion indicators (that I can see) and they are all white.

    Battery Cycle Count is 1011 and the laptop is showing "Replace Battery".

    The display has staingate.

    Should I buy it?

    Yea or nay?

    For $300? Go for it.

    You can have Apple replace the battery and keyboard fairly easily - the battery is, I think, $199 for a rMBP.
