Hello. How good is this MacBook for studies, surfing the web, listening to music and maybe editing a video or two? (Low quality videos). Specs down below. I really want the MacBook to last a few years.

MacBook Pro Retina, 2013.
8 GB Ram
Intel Grapichs 4000 and Nvdia GeForce 650m
Intel Core i7
2,4 ghz
256 GB SSD
4 cores

Please tell me what you think down below. It is second hand offered at around 750$. Will it fit my needs, and how long will the computer last me? Thanks a lot. ALSO - seller is telling me that it has some dead/stuck pixels, which he says you dont notice at all, unless it is fully black screen, then you can actually see it. Will this spread or anything? Should i still buy it?

There's the potential for a BIG difference between a dead pixel (always black) and a stuck pixel (always some color other than black). Like you said, if you frequently have a black screen while you're working or watching videos or whatever, a bright lime green pixel will stand out on its own.

I had an iMac with two dead pixels when I bought it, never encountered any new ones and I never really had a problem with those two - but it was only two. You have to decide if it's a problem.

hi, let me warn you that 650m was known for failing earlier that expected, im not quite sure about this 2013 version but it still holds the same name , guess that tells me something
