    Hi i'm new, and i apologise beforehand if i've posted in the wrong place,
    what i want to know are 2 thing.

    1) i'm coming in less than 1 month in America and i want to buy the macbook pro 15 from 2012 NON retina. i'm looking for this model with this minimum specs

    15" 1680-by-1050 high-resolution antiglare display.

    2.6GHz Intel i7 processor up to 3.6GHz) with 6MB L3 or 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz with 8MB L3

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory

    how much could cost me ??

    and if they have put 16 gb of ram and a ssd instead of the optical drive how much could cost ??'


    2) Where can i buy it ? i've already look at the refurbisched model but i think are too exencive for that model... i mean there are a place "more safe " or bigger or most known than other to buy it ??

    The 2012 MBP 15 non retina has been discontinued. The only place to buy it officially is on Apple's Refurb sites, or used. There might be places like best buy selling the older models, but that's a long shot.

    The 16GB of RAM, SSD and optibay you'd probably have to buy and install yourself. Look on iFixit.com for an easy guide to do it. They also have the parts you can order, although you could probably find them cheaper elsewhere.

    They are that expensive because they have a warranty and are essentially a brand new machine.

    That is correct, refurbished machines went through apple's quality control and probably has a new battery with 0 cycles. Essentially you are buying a new machine.

    Plus they come with the 1 year apple warranty, thus are more expensive than used machines that you would buy from other places. Best buy might have an open box machine for that spec, but like the other user said, it is not very likely.

    There arent better ways to buy other than directly from Apple. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you will probably have to turn to Ebay and Craigslist to find used machines, maybe the person even upgraded to 16gb RAM and SSD. Good luck

    If you are not speaking English fluently or don't have friends to help you out, getting a used one could be a problem ;) Used ones can be found on ebay, craigslist and I whatever Americans also use (never been there personally)...

    The lowest expected price for the configuration you want will be around $1400-1500. With RAM and SSD you are looking at around $1700 or so, more if you let a company do the job

    why u say :" If you are not speaking English fluently or don't have friends to help you out, getting a used one could be a problem" ????
    for the american keyboard or what ???

    i speak english quite well, and i have one of my friend who speak american better than me and he'll go to america next month; anyway what are other site (expect ebay that i already know) for buying the mac ???


    for me it's not a problem to change the ram or the ssd only if they already have changed it's ok, the price is really good; i ask it becuase the price of it in italy it's freaked out they want for the first model around 2584$ and for the second model (with ssd+16 gb or ram) 2721/2992 $

    That's a bit unnecessary.

    I certainly couldn't post a comprehensible forum post on a forum that is exclusively in another language. So it is indeed a relatively OK standard of English.

    If you want to see something really funny, look at Petulka's post history and then check out his grammatical errors. Yet he has the audacity to comment on proper use of the english language.

    Because its often difficult to get a used computer for a good price in a store. Usually you would buy it off someone else. Good communication skills are a big plus.

    Like the others said, Apple refurbs are so expensive because it's basically a brand new laptop. You might be able to find websites, like Best Buy, that have laptops that they themselves refurbished that might be cheaper, but they might not have anything this late after they were discontinued.

    Your best shot is to look on eBay or craigslist.

    Also, if you used a spell check, that would help. ;)

    Let's start with your English.

    The correct term is 'Thanks for answering'.

    It's not "I've just say". It's "I've just said".

    "seen the refurbished one", not "see the refurbished one"

    ----------

    If you speak English quite well, you wouldn't be saying that your friend is speaking American. There is no such language, only American English.

    Penso che avrai più fortuna di parlare in spagnolo.

    Why are people bashing on OP's english skills? Look around here, there are typos and grammatical errors all around. This is a forum, not Parliament or something.

    And btw, I don't think "LMAO" is proper English either.
