    This Macbook Pro has been well-loved in a non-smoke and clean environment and is looking for a new home. The system has been fully upgraded with 4GB of high grade Apple-spec RAM and a blazing fast Intel X25m Gen2 160GB SSD Hard drive (still under warranty). Because of these high performance upgrades, system bootup and application load times outperform even the latest line of Macbook Pros in their stock configuration. With these performance enhancements, this system will easily perform well for many years to come. The system features the now-classic and sought-after aluminum, all-silver casing with backlit Keyboard. It also includes 2 USB ports and a FireWire 800 port. Additionally, it includes a Firewire 400, full size DVI port, and ExpressCard/34 slot which are not found in any of the current models. This system also comes with a brand new battery (April 2010) and a 1 year old 85W magsafe power adapter. The DVD Superdrive is also brand new (April 2010) ensuring that the successful new owner will enjoy this system for MANY years to come. The casing and display are in very good condition with normal wear/minor surface markings. The system comes loaded with a fresh copy of the absolute latest 10.6.3 Snow Leopard, iLife 2009, and iWork 2008 (if you want it)

    This isn't your regular Macbook Pro. Price: $1,666 OBO.

    Hot damn, son. That SSD on its own is pushing the $500 mark. This is a damned good deal and if I had the cash I'd be on this already. Anyone looking for a MBP should stop the search here.

    But I gotta ask: What's with the strange asking price?

    Simple. Why be normal? ;-)

    Thanks for the props. Already got 3 offers off the fb marketplace posting (for $1800US++) but I really don't want to ship it to the States and I'm holding off for now. I have a feeling this system might go fast. Don't sleep if you are considering.

    I would man but I've got about 10% of that asking price in my bank account right now :p

    I'll pass the word along to a couple of people I know are looking for new Macs.
