For sale here is a late 2008 MBP.
The good one with the expresscard slot, not the useless SD slot.
For a person looking for a graphic design machine, this is perfect.
The expresscard slot lets you run an eSATA adaptor for an external drive or raid configuration, and is loads faster than firewire…and if you need a SD slot, no problem, that's just a small adaptor away as well.
This is the 5, 1 iteration of the MBP, 2.53GHZ CPU, 4GB of ram (motherboard will address up to 6GB if you want to upgrade), and a 320GB hard drive.
This also has the dual graphics card layout: a Nvidia GeForce 9400M that shares system memory (up to 256MB), AND a Nvidia GeForce 9600GT with 512MB of DEDICATED graphics memory. A great Setup.
This was around $2000-$2200 new depending on the configuration.
This machine has a brand new superdrive and brand new speakers that were just replaced last month on warranty.
For the buyer, this will come with a fresh copy of Snow Leopard.
I am going to pre-install my copy of the CS5 Master Collection, as well as the onOne Plug-in Suite for Photoshop, which is an awesome setup for photo editing.
I also have quite a bit of other software I can install if you like, PM me for details.
I'm looking for $1500.
The machine is in EXCELLENT condition, no dead pixels, no scratches anywhere (save for the bottom, which can't be helped if you ever move it), blown out with compressed air and cleaned regularly...I take care of my machines.
Please, feel free to ask any questions of PM me.
I can get pictures if anyone is interested when I'm off work.
Thanks for looking.
