    8) Reason for sale:

    I want a MacBook, simple as. It's a fantastic laptop and would do me fine but I just fancy a change to Mac. The laptop is in 100% pristine condition, it's barely been used! I've included the SSD I bought in this lot as well so its total value in in excess of £1,100 all inclusive, hence I think £950 is a reasonable price for the everything.

    Thank-you for looking. Please PM me if you have any questions or drop me an email on dshdshsddh.

    Ta :).

    James.

    will you be interested in selling it without the SSD? Your setup new from sony style is £775 at the moment, so I'd be interested with £550ish? Since it is still second hand :p

    aethy, £550 is a little less than I'd be prepared to accept, frankly. I am more than willing to sell it with the original HD instead of the SSD but I'd be looking for about £650 for it as it really is as good as new; I've barely used the thing!

    Let me know if you're interested :).

    BTW, this setup is actually worth £925 brand new off the Sony website, not £775. I've just specced it up now, see the image below :).

    aethy, I really can't drop as low as £600, that's just too low for what it's worth. I'll happily do you £650 including the postage if you're still keen; the postage itself will probably be at least £30 to get it sent insured so that's only £20 more than what you offered.

    I've just looked at a £650 Dell and with that you don't get a Blu-Ray player (let alone a Blu-Ray writer), a lower res screen (1366x768 vs. 1600x900) and a lower-spec GFX card.

    Do let me know, I'm still very keen to sell and I can get it sent off to you this week if you fancy it :).
