This item fit the bill exactly for my need in a home music studio. Sorta think it's a shame Apple valued thin laptops over functionality. I needed an ethernet port, and the built in CD burner will allow me to create had copies of our recording session. So was more or less forced to seek out a 'vintage' MacBook Pro.
Item received in really excellent condition. Other than a minor scratch on bottom of case....it looked brand new. So Backmarket 'underrates' the condition. Which is a very good thing. I'm sure I'll be back for some older but still useful iPads and iPhones. (my digital mixer allows wireless monitors for the band via smart devices.)
A total bargain for $235. Yes it's capped at OSX 10 but luckily supported by my audio interface/mixer.
Unless you are a power user who needs the latest thing, it's really hard to go wrong w/ these refurbed units. And it's recycling or upcycling or whatever is the fashionable buzzword that keeps hazardous electronic waste from being discarded.
Thanks to all at BackMarket.
