Re: second hand

Depends on if you trust the seller, the price in relation to its age and condition and the warranty offered. And, of course, if you want or need a MacBook Pro.

That's a MINEFIELD. Why?

Because there are MANY models you need to avoid. I'll link in a video about models to avoid in a bit.

There's also the problem you often can't get Applecare so repairs get expensive. There is definitely problems in that repairs can approach what a new laptop costs.

So it better not be one you have to avoid and it better be cheap.

More? Watch the video.

No butterfly keyboard for me.

I'm unconvinced it's fixed. "Second hand" to me would have me be sure it wasn't one of the models in the video or ... just go get it from Apple.
