bought a MacBook (see pic for specs) for like $750

so far this is perfect as an ultra portable unix machine. what does /g/ think? should just have gone with a thinkpad?

I got my mid 2012 non retina 2.6ghz i7 4 years ago for $500. 16gb ram, geforce, 2xSSD, I’ve replaced the keyboard twice due to spills and screen once. The things a tank, shit I was using it to stream 2 elgato hd60’s at the same damn time up until i got my latest pc. Now I have one ssd on windows 10 and one running mojave. It’s not even listed as obsolete.
They don’t make em like they used to, that’s for godamned sure.

(1.2ghz? Seriously?)

wouldn't have paid 750 for something with that hardware but maybe something i don't understand about it being a mac makes it special

i think ppl are missing that this is the 12'' macbook (not pro).

the machine is pretty weak, but this is just meant to be a terminal to my desktop when im not home.

Don't forget to install Homebrew or Macports.

I guess.well anyway, theres reasons i like my mbp at home, and reasons i like my pc laptop at work. I’d install bootcamp and keep it clean.

Because i fucked it up. I literally stepped on it when i was drunk and 225lbs. The keyboards were from spilling drinks on it. 7 years old and not only works but works well? That’s a tank.

it's a fact
a laptop with a 3 year mobile processor is terrible value for $750
