    I'm looking to buy this used MacBook Pro 15in bought in May 2018 for 2950$ CAD (2256$ US) and was wondering if it was a good price (for an apple product)?
    Also, I'm a bit scared to buy this machine because of its unupgradability. I don't know how it will stand the test of time. With my 2010 MacBook Pro, 6 year later i bought it, I doubled the ram and installed an SSD and the computer was brand new! But... I Know I will not be able to this with this one and it kind of bothers me.
    What do you think? Any tips would be very welcome!

    Specs:

    Intel Core I7 2.9 GHz
    16 Gb of 2133 MHz of LPDDR3 SDRAM
    1 Tb SSD
    Radeon Pro 460 with 4 Gb of GDDR5 memory
    Intel HD Graphics 530

    What I'll be doing with that expensive shit:
    Professional Graphic Designer (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effect, Sketch)
    Web programing

    My personal opinion on Apple computers is that you buy them so you don't have to upgrade them. Bought a MacBook Air (mid-2013) and it's flawless. If you want something upgradeable build a PC/laptop. If not, buy a Mac. Or you can build a hackintosh as well.

    The Intel HD Graphics seems dissapointing but its your choice
