For Trade – i7 5960X Workstation / Gaming PC

I was recently debating some upgrades and locally someone was trading a full system for a MacBook so now I have 2 x 8 core builds and decided to just stick with the Ryzen build instead of swapping things around. I was going to try build a hackintosh but with the Nvidia card and no longer owning a MacBook I think this is a non starter.

i7 5960X Extreme Edition
ASUS X99 Deluxe II
32GB Dominator Platinum 2666
Asus GTX 980 GB OC
1 x 500GB Kingston M.2 (Vertical M.2 Slot)
1 x 1TB Toshiba M.2 (PCE-E X4 Card)
1 x Seagate 3TB
Corsair Obsidian 500D
H100 AIO with SP120 fans.

Accessories

Corsair M65 RGB
Corsair K70 Cherry MX Red
Corsair Void wireless
Corsair extended mouse mat M200

BenQ XL2410 120Hz Gaming monitor

I have absolutely no idea on value but I am open to trades and offers, I will have to do some research and maybe offer parts in bundles as it may be difficult to find interest on the full system.

Not currently advertised elsewhere.

Interested in Apple products, VR laptop or Laptop with TB3.

Wanted – 13″ Macbook Pro 2018 with at least 1tb SSD

As per subject, looking for a 13″ Macbook Pro with at least 1tb SSD to upgrade to from my current model.

Spec of my current model:
Retina 13″ Early 2015
2.7ghz i5
8gb 1867MHz DDR3
1tb SSD (can be upgraded)
Performance benchmarks of 723 single core and 1551 multicore
Cycle count: 572
Battery condition: “Good”
State of health: 84.4%
Case in very good condition with no dings or scratches, but some minor ‘screengate’ marks from keys visible when screen is off.

Based on performance benchmarks, I don’t believe 2016 or 2017 models are enough of an upgrade, while prices of 2019 or 2020 models appear out of my reach.

What have you got?

For Sale – Macbook Pro. Early 2013.

Early 2013 Macbook Pro. Specification as follows –

I7 2.7GHz CPU.

16GB DDR3 RAM

15.4” Retina display. 2880×1800.

768Gb Flash storage.

720p Facetime camera.

This has had very light use over the last couple of years, and in its life in general, as you can see from the cycle count in the battery information. There are very few that have such a low cycle count, and the battery still lasts as well as it’s ever done.

This is in remarkable condition given its age, with not a single blemish on the screen, keyboard or case, bar one very tiny one just above the left hand side USB port. You may be able to make it out on the image provided.

It comes with the original charger, welcome pack/instructions, and original box, all in great condition.

The only issue with this are that there are a few dead pixels. Again, you can see these in the images I’ve provided, although it is quite tough to capture them. They can only be seen when the machine boots, and I cannot stress enough that you really don’t see them in general use. I have also provided images taken directly where they are located but with the screen in on, just to highlight their lack of visibility when using the screen in normal conditions. They are also there (somewhere) on the system information screenshots.

It is updated to the latest version of MacOS, and will be factory reset before posting.

If it goes for the asking price, I’ll include postage, otherwise I’d guess it’d come in at about £20. I do have to check that.

Wanted – Macbook Pro 2019/2020 13” full spec? – Long Shot!

Presume you’re looking for a MacBook Pro? At the end of June I will have for sale a 2018 Quad-Core 2.3 i5, 8GB RAM, 512 GB storage if you’re interested and could wait until then. A little bit older than you’re looking for but fairly similar to the 2019 spec.

It’s a great machine and has been used to edit documentaries for BBC Two on FCPX, but a new model is on order as it looks like there will be an extended period of working from home. I can’t sell until that arrives however, and Apple currently have given a delivery date of June 29.

For Sale – Brand new Alienware m15 R2 (i7, RTX 2070, 256GB SSD)

I won this beautiful piece of equipment at a conference in NL a couple of weeks back but I use a Macbook Pro for work and don’t game so it’s been sitting around collecting dust and now, trying to fund a start-up it’s a good opportunity for me to sell.

It’s never been used, the lid has been opened once to take the picture for this thread and it’s never been out of the box. Seals still on the screen. Did a bit of research and these are real state of the art machines, not too clunky and the keyboard isn’t obnoxiously small – over-all I think whoever buys it will have a hell of an experience.

I’ve sold phones on here and also a Macbook Pro without issue! Also, i’ll link my ebay profile where I used to sell refurbed phones if anyone wants to check my rep.

I will be posting for FREE using the most competent and reliable logistics companies so either DHL or DPD – tracked a signed for next day delivery. No RoyalMail BS in this thread!

(Also, the box has the plastic on it because DHL stick their labels in a sticky bag)

SPECS:

9th gen Intel Core i7 9750H
8GB DDR4 RAM
RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6
256GB PCIe SSD
15 inch FHD 60hz display
Comes with Win-10 pre installed.

Also comes with European power adapter (as I won it in NL) so a UK wall adapter will work fine.

Wanted – Macbook Pro 2019 or 2020 with 16GB RAM

Looking for a 2019 or 2020 Macbook Pro with 16GB of RAM. EDIT: Would consider 2018 too if higher spec.

Screen size, storage and any other spec is unimportant as long as it has that amount of memory.

Condition must be excellent, a low(ish) battery cycle count and must include original box and ideally proof of purchase.

£1400 is my absolute top end of budget, I can’t go any higher. Should be enough to cover any second hand base model with a RAM upgrade.

Can collect within a reasonable distance and pay via bank transfer. I’m a few miles north of Walsall/J7 M6.
