Sell MacBook Pro 17 2010
In typical Apple fashion, the 2010 MacBook Pro 17 comes with the same features as the same MacBook Pro we saw in 2009. The display, keyboard, weight, and ports are all virtually identical to the previous generation.
Even though we've seen the chassis of the 2010 MacBook Pro on previous versions, it is still impressive. The unibody aluminum case appears to be as strong and thin as it was in late 2008.
The upgrades on the external features of the 2010 MacBook Pro 17 are sparse. One minor difference that eagle-eyed Mac customers may note is that the MagSafe magnetic power adapter wire has been tweaked. The 2010 MacBook Pro has a thinner side-attaching cable similar to the one seen on the MacBook Air. Because the wire juts out less, there should be fewer yank-outs.
Newcomers and observers of the MacBook Pro line-up may take the lack of update in bad taste, but it is a characteristic Apple move. The Cupertino company is known for its minimalist (functional) approach to updating devices.
So you can be confident that the company will add features they deem necessary for optimal use of the MacBook Pro. Still, we can understand if you are frustrated with Apple's slow update system.
At the time of writing this article, 2021, Apple hasn't changed its approach to updating devices. The 2020 MacBook Pro takes after the previous version in many ways, including design. Speaking about the 2020 MacBook Pro, it is about 10 years younger than the 2010 MacBook Pro 17. That means the 2010 MacBook Pro is due for a change. If you're living in the US, you can sell your 2010 MacBook Pro on Gizmogo to fund the purchase of the latest MacBook. Gizmogo also supports device swapping.
Design info: This model is wrapped with a "Unibody" aluminum casing that is machined from a single piece of metal. You will open the laptop to see a backlit keyboard, a 17-inch screen, and a novel "no button" glass "inertial" multi-touch touchpad. An 8-9 hours non-swappable battery is built into the frame of the device.
This model features a fairly identical exterior shell to its predecessor but an improved trackpad and the same connections, with the exception of the better audio through Mini DisplayPort. However, it has a significantly different internal design, with a faster "Core i5" processor and better graphics, although sharing the same RAM. The battery life has also been enhanced.
For connectivity, this MacBook Pro comes with an AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, three USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire "800" port, optical digital/analog audio in/out, a "Mini DisplayPort" that supports an external display at 2560x1600, and an ExpressCard/34 slot – not an SD card slot.
The entire hardware runs on 4 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) installed in pairs (two 2 GB modules). The RAM pairs with a 500 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, an 8X DL "SuperDrive," and dual graphics processors — an NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M with 512 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory and Intel HD Graphics with 256 MB of shared RAM.
Size and weight info: The 2010 MacBook Pro measures10.51 x 15.47 x 0.98′′ (267 x 393 x 25 mm) and weighs 6.6 pounds (2.99 kg)
Display info: This MacBook sports a 17.0" color widescreen LED-backlit TFT active-matrix display with a native resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels. The display is "glossy" by default, although Apple also sold this model with an "anti-glare" (matte) display for an additional $50.
In addition to the native resolution, Apple claims that the display supports "1680 by 1050, 1280 by 800, 1024 by 640, 1152 by 720, and 800 by 500 pixels at 16:10 aspect ratio; 1280 by 1024 pixels at 5:4 aspect ratio, and more.
Camera info: As expected of a MacBook from this time, this device comes with an iSight camera for pictures and video. Apple threw in a number of features to improve the media capacity of the 2010 MacBook Pro.
Videography: The 2010 MacBook Pro has an iSight camera for video, as well as a Mini DisplayPort output connector that supports DVI, VGA, dual-link DVI, and HDMI (requires adapters, sold separately).
Chip info: Given that the 17-inch configuration's most important modifications occur beneath the hood, let's concentrate on performance. Independent tests run with a Speedmark 6 system performance benchmarking software shows the new Core i5 chipset on this MacBook is 12 percent faster than the older model.
The 17-inch MacBook Pro may be customized in a variety of ways, according to Apple. For an extra $200, you may upgrade to a 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 processor. It will cost an additional $400 to double the RAM to 8GB, and speedier storage, including solid-state drives, are also available.
Battery info: This model features a "95-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery," according to Apple, which enables "up to 8-9 hours of wireless work."
The i5 17-inch MacBook Pro lasts longer on a single charge than the previous 17-inch model, thanks to improvements to the graphics processors and modest adjustments to the battery. Independent tests show that the 2010 MacBook Pro lasts about 8.5 percent longer than the devices it replaces.
