Someone at work is selling the following:

15" Macbook Pro, mid 2014 EMC2876
2.5GHZ i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD
Good condition, comes with power cable
$675

They wont budge on price. I was thinking it was worth closer to $600?

That is 100/200 less than they are selling on c-list the east coast, the 16gb is worth the extra price.
Check the mbp before buying.... obviously
Oh, so they keep themselves clean?
If they are dirty and disorganizes, i would not bite

It looked nice when I saw it, but I need to take a closer look. I figure it would run great as is but a SSD upgrade might be nice if not necessary. Thanks!

There is a 2014 2.8 Ghz/16 GB/1 TB/nVidia in Providence for $1,200. It comes with a 30-day warranty from a shop. I would say that it's a reasonable price - at least it would be in New England. If you already have power bricks, you might see if you could buy it without the power brick to save $75. I did that with my previous purchase.

The systems with small SSDs tend to sit on the market for longer until someone comes along that knows how to put in a bigger SSD.

I guess I could put in a bigger SSD. No dual drive slots right, so one drive only? Is there much performance difference in day to day use (not 4k video editing, for example) between this and a "equivalent" 2015? I like the older models with all the ports.
