A barely-used top-of-the-line “mid-2015″ 15.4” Retina MacBook Pro with the 2.8GHz Core i7 CPU, AMD Radeon M370X dual graphics, 1TB SSD and 16GB of RAM. Built in September 2016 and purchased from Apple in February 2017, it has less than 10 cycles on its battery. (EveryMac specs for MBP 11,5 model identifier)
The machine includes an Apple 60W MagSafe 2 power adapter and an Apple Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter dongle. This is the last MacBook Pro to include actual ports (2 x USB 3.0, 2x Thunderbolt, HDMI, optical audio, and an SD Card slot) before the current revision replaced them all with USB-C.

Price: Asking $1,350. Not looking to trade. USPS 2-day shipping, with insurance, for actual cost from 27712.
Condition: The machine is in perfect working order, but has cosmetic damage to the top case, near the Thunderbolt ports. There is no impact on the machine’s function or performance. All ports function perfectly, it charges normally, the drive functions perfectly, the display is perfect. The bottom case serial number does not match (the original seller never explained, see below). The motherboard has been visually inspected by an Apple hardware specialist and was found in perfect working order with a serial number that matches what’s reported by Apple System Profiler.
Here’s why it has so little use: I purchased this MacBook Pro in mid-2017 via eBay when my toddler accidentally damaged my workhorse 2012 MBP and I needed something with real ports ASAP (I’m a starving artist/documentary filmmaker). It arrived with the dent on the left side, a knock-off power adapter and the bottom case swapped. The seller improperly packaged the laptop and mis-represented its condition. Because of a postal service investigation into the seller unrelated to the damage (in addition to everything else, he was forging USPS postage labels), I was told to hold onto the laptop and it’s packing materials, in case the USPS required it as evidence. It’s been more than a year and I’ve heard nothing, so I am putting this barely used MBP up for sale (in the meantime I’d purchased a new touchbar laptop from Apple).
