Late 2011 15" MacBook Pro 2.2 Ghz i7/ 4 GB RAM/ DUAL **SSD/HDD!!!***
What's good, SBF?!
I am currently selling my personal laptop, a Late 2011 Macbook Pro. This 2.2 Ghz quad-core powerhouse features hyperthreading technology that allows each of the virtual cores to simultaneously process two threads, meaning there are a total of eight threads. In other words, this computer can handle extremely strenuous tasks with ease. I use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash CS3 for school, as well as AutoCAD 2012. iMovie is great for editing snowboarding clips. Even Android Developing Apps such as Eclipse don't even cause the computer to hiccup when your working. It's super stable, and the thirteen second boot time from the Intel 320 128GB SSD Boot Drive is the icing on the cake. The larger size of the drive leaves enough space for your applications so they run extra fast, and launch in less than two seconds. Not to mention SSD's save power; I normally get through the school day, with enough power left to go to work after school and do homework without having to plug it in. A good 12 hours carrying it around, and in use for more than half of them. Some programs like Photoshop drain it faster, to around three hours. But turning off the wifi and lowering the backlight and keyboard brightness (favorite feature) definitely improve it. I normally drain the battery the whole charge and plug it in, something that you are supposed to do to extend the life of the cell that more people bother with. This computer has been taken care of!
There are another 500 GB's of storage on the stock HDD, but there is no Superdrive inside the computer. I still have it, in protective packaging, with all of the other receipts, documentation, packaging, and even the Apple stickers. It has the USB OSX Recovery Drive, so you don't even need the Superdrive to restore the computer should it have a problem. I doubt that you'll have to worry about that, but if anything does happen the computer itself is insured by Apple's Limited Warranty until November. In the meantime, you still have the option to buy Applecare for the computer and have coverage for another three years. The Intel SSD has a five year limited warranty, it will expire in late 2016. Expect a headache free computer that has the most up to date software and hardware. I personally chose to partition the stock HDD, using 250 GB of it for an on board Time Machine backup.
**The computer will be sold restored to the factory state with all of it's original packaging, documentation, receipt from PowerMax, and a bill of sale. I can leave the SSD inside the optical bay with the 2.5" HDD caddy, or if you choose so I'll remove the SSD and put the Superdrive back in. If you want the SSD put in where the HDD is, I'll do that too. You can keep the HDD separate, as a external drive or you can buy a external housing for the optical drive. According to MacRumors, Apple is going to stop having factory optical drives in the next refresh. This means that having a laptop with dual internal drives only going to become more of a rarity. It's a computer that gives you some bragging rights, and will hold up for quite a few years to come.
There are however, a couple imperfections. The lower right corner has a small dent from being knocked into something. I babied the laptop and don't know how it happened, my thought is my friend's younger cousin knocked into it or maybe someone kicked my backpack at school? No matter what happened, I'm not worried that anything important was damaged since it was constantly in a Targus sleeve when I wasn't using it. There is also a small knick on the top panel, in the lower right corner. That happened in class when I picked up my computer and a screw end in the desk knicked it. No damage occurred to the screen, furthermore the screen is flawless with no scratches, dead pixels, or bright spots. When I noticed the dent last week I opened up the computer and checked it out and cleaned out the dust.
It got a Geekbench score of 9209 just now, when I bought it it got 9403. Keep in mind it's the 32-bit version, though. If you have an offer in mind, feel free to shoot me an offer. I would be interested in trading for a car, I'll consider other stuff just hit me up. Asking price: $1900 inc. shipping in the Continental US.
