Hard Drive: 320GB 500GB 1TB or 128GB SSD. RAM: 4GB 8GB or 16GB. Processor: 2.5Ghz 3rd generation Core i5. Display: 13.3 1280x800 Glossy.
Model MacBook Pro 9,2 (mid 2012 pre-retina). Note: the 1TB and 128GB SSD variations are the same price! You have a choice of a 1TB HDD or a 128GB SSD at equal cost. Hard drives and solid state drives have been tested and factors indicate they have many years of life. The drives show no signs of eminent failure.
A used battery offers decent battery life but a new battery is highly recommended for optimized battery life. Most competing sellers DO NOT include a new battery.
The laptop has several small dents, scratches, and scrapes. However, such cosmetic damage doesn't affect performance. The laptop has been thoroughly tested and is guaranteed to work. There are several variations available so buyers can configure a custom build.
A new battery is a brand new third party battery. These batteries usually have 1 initialization cycle. A used battery has a varying number of cycles but condition reads "normal" within the operating system.
However, battery life will always be better with a new battery or a battery with fewer cycles. RAM is used to store files actively in use. Since RAM is thousands of times faster than hard disks, it is imperative to have enough RAM and avoid having the computer default to the hard disk for lack of RAM (SWAP memory).The minimum variation for RAM is 4GB as I find the new operating systems run poorly on less. The hard drive offers long term storage of your information.
This listing offers a variety of storage options. Traditional hard drives (HDD) have a mechanical disk while solid state drives (SSD) use flash memory chips much like RAM. HDDs offer a cheaper option for storage while SSDs offer higher speed but at more expense. With an SSD, buyers will notice improved program launch times, file transfer speed, and startup/shutdown time of the computer.
MacOS High Sierra 10.13. ILife and iWork packages available at no cost on the Mac App Store.
