    That's cool, Tony!
    Yeah, there should be a label on the bottom of the box you can shoot a photo of that'll detail the specs.

    Here's a quick edit for you there, Tony. Nice specs on this unit.
    • 1440x900 resolution << comfy real estate for a 13" display
    • Core i5 processor w/3MB L3 cache (looks like 1.9Ghz w/turbo to 2.9Ghz)
    • 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
    • 256GB PCIe SSD << this disk technology goes a long way in computer speed these days. SSD sata drives were already a nice upgrade, but the PCIe stuff is even faster.
    • SD Memory Card Reader Slot
    • 802.11ac << this is the fast WiFi. I've seen close to Gigabit speeds with ac and a supported router like one of the Netgear Nighthawks
    • ~3lbs
    Man, I kinda want this thing now, myself! Have at it fellas.

    Tony,

    I am interested. Any chance you could divulge if it is pro or air? Even though I am ridding myself of these spoiled apples, my wife likes that it just works.

    Full disclosure. If it pisses me off. I will very likely get rid of it. But at least I took it off your hands, if I do get it.

    Hope all is well Tony.

    Yeah man, sorry about the crappy pic.

    Halen,
    Says MacBook air on the box. I would probably just keep this myself and give it a whirl but considering what I just spent on frickin' trees, I need to replenish the ol' wallet.

    MSG, thanks buddy for the edit on my crappy pic. :)

    No secret there, as a corporation I'm not fond of them, but I am willing to give their product a try since the wife got it as part of a contest. Would I go out and spend 1200 on a laptop....no. Unfortunately I need the cash more than I need a laptop.

    Ha. No hate. After owning the X for 7 or so months now, just discovered portrait mode for photos. Was about to sell the phone, but now I can’t stop taking pictures of everything. Very nice!

    Tony. Great deal you are offering. Was hoping it was the pro. But who knows, evening beers may influence my thoughts.

    No thanks, I have an old Dell PC... that is actually an epic custom gaming rig :mrgreen:
    16 GB of 2333Mhz RAM, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card, Asus motherboard (can’t remember the model number) Intel Xeon core of an older generation, although still quick (soon to be 2 Xeons), I don’t have a cooler capable of overclocking... yet. :naughty:
    None of this is new, but it is a respectable rig. Cost quite a bit though, had to pay for most of it myself. I was saving 40% of all of my money for a LONG time, probably 3 years. :#
    Everyone who comes into my room sees the Dell tower and says to themselves “weak computer.” Then they play a round of FortNite and are blown away!

    I believe his iPhone 3g did sale. The thread title states MacBook Pro. With a picture as clear as a Bigfoot sighting.

    Haha. Kidding. Congrats on the sell.

    Yes, it sold. If anything changes I'll post it here but so far...done deal.
