    Cool SOLD: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody, 4GB...

    I have upgrade fever, so here is my 15" MacBook Pro:

    Unibody, late 2008 model - the last one with user-swappable batteries (2 included). It's a 2.53GHz, 4GB RAM, 160GB/7200 RPM drive, expresscard32 slot with Delkin SD/SDHC/MemoryStick reader. I covered it in ZAGG clear skin the day I bought it, so no scratches anywhere. Glossy 1440x900 screen. Covered under AppleCare until November 30, 2011. Fresh install of Snow Leopard. Perfect working order, never repaired, dropped, or spilled-on. Original box with all accessories.

    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.53 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 6 MB
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MBP51.007E.B05
    SMC Version (system): 1.33f8


    Upgrade fever price: $1234 including the spare battery, shipped in CONUS.

    Sure ... now you show up. Where were you two weeks ago when I bought a new 13" MacBook Pro for almost the same price? ;-) If I only needed another one. By the way, the specs are almost identical except your processor is .13 faster. Good luck with your sale.

    Sorry, Aboudd.

    FYI - B&H has this model listed for $1569 without AppleCare or the card reader.

    Come on, B&H doesn't list 2008 models. Whatever 15" model they have is current.

    for some reason they do indeed:

    still, my point here is that you can buy a great macbook pro for a great price.

    There may be some confusion on the B&H site -- the late 2008 model has a 2.53 core-duo processor, while the "current" 2.53 GHz model has an i5 processor. What the exact differences are between the core duo and i5, I don't know for certain.

    It's a fair price indeed. Someone should grab this puppy.

    A few people have asked if I would accept less. The answers are:

    1. I can knock off $75 if you don't need the 2nd battery.
    2. Offer me some Leica or Canon gear as part of the deal.

    Thanks!
