Laptop Sale FAQ
Q: What does obsolete and vintage mean?
A: Apple defines this clearly here and we would encourage you to read this before buying one of our Apple laptops.
Q: You said the Apple laptops are installed with MacOS 10.14 Mojave. Can IT install a different version instead?
A: No. But you can, either through the AppStore application, or macOS Recovery
Q: The Laptop list indicates that the screen on some of the Apple laptops is “delaminating” - what does that mean?
A: These models have an anti-reflective coating that was applied over the screens during the manufacturing process. It was discovered by some users that over time, this coating began to wear out (or “delaminate”) for various reasons. Apple has since fixed this flaw with newer models and initiated a Screen-Replacement Program for delaminating screens -- for a limited time, however. In the case of laptops being sold with delaminating screens, that was cosmetic damage that occurred after the program closed, and could not be replaced as a result. We are selling these at a lower cost.
Q: If power adapters are not available, how can I get one?
