IMG_2730.JPG
Manufactured Jan 2012
2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
8 GB memory
1TB Crucial SSD (fitted by me) (£250 upgrade)

This has been used as my regular machine whenever I’ve not been at my desk using my iMac. It has been well looked after and comes from a smoke free environment.

I have a proper Apple box, but it is from another machine.

It has never put a foot wrong and is still a quick and impressive machine.

I’ve been setting up a new 13.3-inch Macbook Pro 2.9GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 for a friend, and the new machine is a little faster, but not that noticeable.

The 1TB SSD is very quick. I fitted it myself and makes start up very fast. From 0 to login screen in 18 seconds.

Battery condition is good according to coconut. 910 cycles.

I have a brand new spare battery that I will include. It was £35 and classed as an OEM replacement.
Comes with the charger (no frays)
£525 including RMSD

Price and currency: £525
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT, PPG or cash on collection

Microsoft announces new mixed-reality jobs and education partnerships for British Columbia – News Center

Microsoft to hire another 50 new employees in mixed reality, partners with BCIT on mixed-reality curriculum and announces computer science pilot program for high schools

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Nov. 1, 2017 — At the annual Business Council of British Columbia’s Business Summit, Microsoft President Brad Smith on Wednesday announced Microsoft Vancouver will create an additional 50 new jobs in the mixed-reality market in support of British Columbia’s growing tech ecosystem.

Furthering the company’s commitment to creating economic opportunity in the region, Smith also announced two new education partnerships to empower the next generation of British Columbians: a plan to pilot TEALS, a Microsoft Philanthropies program that helps high schools build and grow sustainable computer science programs, and a partnership with the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) to design curriculum for mixed reality.

“Vancouver is becoming a world-class hub for mixed reality and digital innovation,” Smith said. “By continuing to partner with British Columbia’s business and education community, we’re excited to play a part in helping British Columbians enter the growing technology workforce. Students in Vancouver will become leaders in this next wave of innovation that reinvents how we work, learn and play.”

The announcement comes as British Columbia continues to expand its digital economy, recently opening Canada’s first VR/AR/MR hub, The Cube, a 6,000-square-feet co-working space in the heart of Railtown, and being named as one of nine finalists in the federal government’s Supercluster Initiative, where the government will make investments up to $950 million over five years to support business-led innovation superclusters that generate economic impact for Canada. Microsoft is a founding member of British Columbia-led Canadian Digital Supercluster consortium.

The TEALS pilot is the first time the program will expand outside the United States. Around the world, students want to learn computer science, but most schools are unable to offer courses because of a lack of teachers with computer science training. TEALS helps solve this gap by pairing trained computer science professionals from across the technology industry with classroom teachers to team-teach computer science during the school year. TEALS, which uses computer science curricula adapted from U.C. Berkeley and the University of Washington, helps teachers get the training and support they need to be able to teach computer science on their own, helping their students build skills for in-demand careers across sectors and industries. Founded in 2009, this year the program has volunteers from 500 companies helping teach 12,000 students in 348 U.S. schools, with 86 in Washington state. TEALS is currently in the process of determining which school in the province it will partner with to bring the program to British Columbia in the 2018–2019 school year.

Microsoft is also partnering with the BCIT, the region’s leading polytechnic, to develop a first-of-its-kind mixed-reality curriculum and degree. By providing guidance for the program, Microsoft will help train students to meet the skill sets needed for careers in the burgeoning field of digital media and entertainment. By developing local talent, BCIT is preparing students for immediate opportunities in the technology industry and strengthening the pipeline for individuals looking to enter the industry.

“As a significant provider of IT and computing diploma graduates in the province, we know there is immense opportunity for students preparing to enter the Lower Mainland’s growing tech industry,” said BCIT President Kathy Kinloch. “Collaborating with Microsoft will help keep BCIT at the forefront of technical innovation and sets our students up to enter the job market with the highly desirable skills that businesses are demanding.”

Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) is the leading platform and productivity company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
