About our Refurbished (second hand) Macbook Pros
The MacBook Pro is a line of Macintosh portable computers introduced in January 2006 by Apple Inc., and now in its third generation. Replacing the PowerBook G4, the MacBook Pro was the second model, after the iMac, to be announced in the Apple–Intel transition. It is also the high-end model of the MacBook family and is currently produced with 13- and 15-inch screens, although a 17-inch version has been offered previously.
The first generation MacBook Pro appeared externally similar to the PowerBook G4, but used the Intel Core processors instead of PowerPC G4 chips. The 15-inch model was released in January 2006, a 17-inch model in April, both of which received several updates and Core 2 Duo processors later in the year.
The second model, known as the "unibody" model, has a more tapered design and a casing made from a single block of aluminum. It debuted in October 2008 as the 15-inch MacBook Pro and the 13-inch aluminum unibody MacBook. The following January brought the design to the 17-inch model, along with the built-in battery that joined the rest of the MacBook Pro line in June, including the 13-inch model which Apple absorbed into the MacBook Pro line. Subsequent updates brought upgraded Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and introduced Intel's Thunderbolt technology.
Apple released the third generation of MacBook Pro in June 2012 as a 15-inch screen size only. At the same time, slightly updated versions of the previous 13- and 15-inch unibody models were announced that will sell in parallel, although Apple has delisted and possibly discontinued the 17-inch variant. While dimensionally smaller than its predecessor, the similarly styled third generation model still retains a unibody form factor. Specification-wise, the most substantial differences in the next-generation MacBook Pro are the fitting of a significantly higher resolution Retina display, the elimination of the optical drive, and replacement of hard disk drives with solid-state drives. A third generation 13-inch MacBook Pro was released on October 23, 2012. As with the 15-inch, it includes a Retina display.
Impressive service, I was informed at each stage of the delivery. The laptop is in very good condition with only two very small marks on the top.It is a very clean machine with no signs of wear on the keyboard or touch-pad.
Purchased as a dedicated "school homework" notebook to access the internet / use MS Office - arrived on time, excellent condition, not the fastest machine in earth but more than fine for MS Office. I would use The Laptop Centre again - good communications kept informed of delivery status, well packed, as described, battery life good and new compatible AC adapter - +++++
Ordered Sunday, delivered 8am Wednesday, brilliant. Just wanted a non-windows 8 laptop that we could just access the internet with, no fancy bits. The laptop is in good condition, a few marks on lid, but a very nice and clean keyboard. It was in better condition that I expected. All works straight from the get go, for the price it is perfect for what we require a laptop for. I am considering ordering another so we can have one each. All in all great buy.
