    The early 2011 models came with a 2.2Ghz Core i7. So that must be it. None of the other unibody 17" models had that clock speed.

    Thats what im thinking too, just wanted to confirm. The only thing that threw me off was the older charger. but I guess he lost/broke his original

    I have a friend from college who is selling it to me for a veryyyy good price. They never told me the year or anything else. And I dont want to ask them either so they dont realize the actual value :)

    So 'bamboozling' a friend - LOL! :D Well, I'm sure that the selling price can be checked easily on eBay or a look at refurbished ones from Apple or elsewhere.

    But remember, when the price is 'too good to be true....' - well - good luck and enjoy! Dave :)

    umm

    that totally looks like a 15" mbp not 17" right? the bezel is too thick and the speaker grills too narrow.

    Do you have access to the actual device? Because then you could go to the "About This Mac" menu and it'll tell you the year.

    2011 with modded screen... One guy offered something similar in a trade on CL for 1200 $... I think the actual value should be around 1000$... a nice mac however... a beast with an ssd :)

    The speakers next to the keyboard give it away as being a 15" MBP. The bezel on the anti-glare display seems small. I guess I just am not used to looking at them.

    Modded screen? :confused: That's a standard Apple hi-res anti-glare display, which was available on the 2011. I don't see anything about it that's been modded.

    White bezel?! Never seen Apple do that as standard on the MBP.

    The Mac pictured is a late 2011 15-inch MacBook Pro but not with it's original power adapter as they came with the aluminium cylindrical-shaped MagSafe and not the white plastic ones.

    It's not white...it's silver...it looks white because of the camera flash, which also gives it away as being a hi-res antiglare...which come with silver bezels.

    The adapter could be a spare, replacement, or used. Means nothing in terms of the MBP itself.

    The magsafe gives it away as Pre-2011. Though that can easily be an older adapter.

    Still an aftermarket bezel is the point made?!

    Also, regarding the power adapter, is that not exactly what I just said?! I said it's not the original one to come with the machine.

    What are you talking about?! The silver bezel is STANDARD with the hi-res anti-glare display. IT IS NOT A MOD.

    Yes, I'm just not sure why it matters or why it was worth mentioning. :)

    NO IT ISN'T!

    It's a high-res antiglare screen, which has been a BTO option since 2010.

    It's an early 2011 model. Still has the old Exposé and Dashboard function keys.

    I thought I'd chime in and confirm that it's definitely a genuine Apple-made anti-glare display. The anti-glare models have no extra glass in front of the display, have a matte finish on the display and the aluminium bezel surrounding it. It's also definitely the 15" model, not 17" (as mentioned earlier).

    My colleague at the Apple Premium Reseller I work at has one.

    Because he's trying to identify the product?!

    The product has already been identified by looking at the product itself, all you're doing is adding confusion with your misunderstanding/misinformation.

    A car's tires/wheels don't tell you what it is since they can be easily changed. Same goes with the brick. What if they had a Logitech mouse connected to it, would you then say it's not a Mac at all but it's now a PC? ;)

    It's ok to admit you're wrong, BTW. I notice you didn't even acknowledge or apologize for steering this thread off into the weeds with your repeated "It's been modded" posts. :rolleyes:

    Let's move on. Unless you want to discuss the surface on which the MBP is sitting? :D
