Hi guys.

Long time, no postie, so first up its good to be back and the forums are looking even better than before: congrats, Amos! :)

Next, my question: I have been offered a very tasty deal on a 17" Macbook Pro with a 2.3Ghz processor. However, the guy who is selling it (for $2100) is mac-illiterate and can't work out the rest of the specs. Was someone able to help me out and tell me the tech specs that this machine shipped with?

It was a gift for this guy, and he has receipts etc: its not a stolen one. I guess what I'm after is the basic specs assuming it wasn't a CTO.

Also, at that price is it worth buying? I would ideally like a 15" new one, but if the specs of the 17" are good enough at that price, I may well buy it.

Cheers,

~Ozi.

I always use Mactracker from www.mactracker.com.au for the machine specs.

As for the price I would only pay that if it was still covered by Applecare.
Last week there were brand new 15" Santa Rosa's being sold off from some of the resellers here in Melbourne for similar money to what you are paying for the 17".

Thanks Leon. Unfortunately, I cannot download mactracker onto this computer (Work PC), and my pBook 1Ghz is not connected to the net. Very annoying! Otherwise, i'd have the details in an instant.

Anyone with the program keen to help me out and look up the specs?

Oh and Leon, your machine looked like a brilliant deal: shame its sold!

This is true... it was a very tasty package of gear and a great price. You are lucky I only saw the thread this afternoon! ;)
