Just bought a 15" mid 2012 macbook pro for $750.

CPU: i7 Quad Core @2.2

RAM: 16GB

Storage: 250GB Pro SSD

Graphics is Intel 4000 series with 1GB of dedicated RAM

 

Opinions? I'll be using it for work and maybe some graphic design. Thinking about getting some of the docks I've seen advertised for them.

Who needs more than 16gb of ram on a macbook pro? o.O

 

Processor speed isn't great, but for that price I'd say you got a good deal if you like Mac.

not a fan a macs as they don't offer enough performance for the money you're paying, i would build a hakintosh if i were you, but hey that's just me :D  i'm sure you need that potability.

Yes it can :P

I have a few more SSDs, I probably won't need much more space but in the event I do I may replace the DVD drive with a hard drive.

I wouldn't have bought it retail. I got it on ebay and it will last for long enough I'm sure. My 2008 macbook is still going strong and it has a core 2 duo and a hacked 8gb ram :D

 

I'll mostly be using it for development.

Laptop works great so far. Came with Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB which I wasn't expecting, very fast. i7 has 8 logical cores and the 16gb ram is native and required no bios hacks :D
