I am wondering if buying a used macbook pro 15 with a 750m for 1000 usd including a few adapters and trackpad and mouse, is it worth it? I have never owned a mac and im quite interested in one. I will mostly do some videoediting and photoediting, nothing really heavy. Some productivity stuff aswell. Maybe a bit gaming while im on travel but nothing heavy, its not the gaming im asking about (i know these machines arent used for that). Will this machine do me well for a few years to come? and will it edit a bit 4k? Been using sony vegas for a bit and planning to make a switch to fcpx if a get a mac. Anything special i should look after? Or get a base model 13 inch 2017?

Not familiar with macbooks but I haven't seen any computer that would be worth 1k now make in 2013. If you must get a macbook mind as well get a new one, I know there are issues with not being able to upgrade (I think, I'm not big on Apple products). I would check out ebay if I were you to find out what the price of the used macbooks are going for. And you also have to consider what the state the battery is in, any potential hardware issues, etc.

With a 2 minute search i found at least 10+ 2013 Macbooks going for around £533 gbp or $699 usd.

I am an ex apple user.
Dont love or hate them.

But just from that search I would say no....not worth $1000 usd.

One thing i forgot to address is that its converted from norwegian krones to usd, its with a norwegian layout and taxes here are crazy. but then again as you and other have said, its maybe a bit to much since its used. Maybe going for a new 13 inch is a better choice?
