    I had been keeping an eye on the new MacBook Pros with Touch Bar just having never pulled the trigger on one. Today, I walked into my local Best Buy and was browsing around and happened to look at the "Open-Box" section and they had a 2017 256GB 13" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. With a jaw dropping price of $1,311.99! I thought no way that had to be a 2016 model at least! The tag on the box had a comment that listed "residue on the MacBook". The Best Buy lady I was working with opened it all up for me and I looked the computer over front to back and side to side with not a scratch or sign of "residue" anywhere. I confirmed it was a 2017 model and I pulled the trigger right then and there and bought it, which I am now using to type this post. I have a 15 day return policy but my question to you guys is do you have any clue what they could have possibly meant by "residue"? Like maybe somebody spilled something on it and they cleaned the exterior but it got inside the machine? All the keys type fine, no stickiness, the screen is clean. Almost seems too good to be true.

    Amazing deal on 2017 MacBook Pro 13"!-img_5391.jpg

    Congratulations on getting your new MBP at such a great price. I highly doubt the alleged “residue” will be an issue for you. It won’t have any effect on how the device performs so enjoy it.

    That’s awesome! I doubt the residue will be an issue buy you might want to pick up AppleCare+ for it, just to be safe. You have 60 days from date of purchase to decide.

    If you have any doubts about anything being wrong, just run a diagnostic yourself and see if anything ones up. Oh, congrats for the new MacBook Pro.

    Even if it had a bit of "residue" Probably a little alcohol, or other light cleaner would have taken it RIGHT off! GREAT deal!

    If it runs ok and looks good, I'd be ok with it I'd try to get Apple Care on it as suggested above, otherwise just enjoy it! Nice find!

    Great deal. I bought the 2017 256gb 13" without the touchpad for $1200 at Best Buy about a month or so ago. I've been very happy with it. Had I seen something like this I probably would have pulled the trigger too. Congratulations and enjoy it!
