Aha, I wasn't interested in that model. Is the price quoted the same at $1122?
$993.75 - $90

For those who know... this thread is deceiving...

I am not a tech wiz in the least but they had two models online that someone mentioned earlier a Rep said were “the same”. I googled the different processors and one was the model you got and the other was “M-7Y32”, which was sold out online. I wrote to them and asked if I could get the “M-7Y32” processor and the rep said they were the exact same machine. I googled a little and found that ones processor was released in 2014 and the one I was asking about was released in 2017, I really have no clue if I was even right. I told him it was the Kaby Lake chips (tried to sound like I knew what I was talking about). He said he’d get back to me...he did and agreed to see if he could find me one of the M-7Y32 models. A few hours later I completed my transaction and I’m hoping there was some truth to my 4 minutes of googling the two models. If someone knows if any of this is true please chime in, Im hoping I didn’t get. 2015 model.

If indeed he got you one of the m3-7y32 models, you did good because that's the 2017 MacBook with the latest processor and second gen keyboard.

I bought mine new and it was $1729 for the 2017 model.

The older models are m3-6Y30 (2016) and M-5Y31 (2015) as base processors

No way! Oh my goodness, you just made my night. I just checked the invoice they sent me and it says:

APPLE Notebook
COREM-7Y32
1.1GHz
8.0 GB
220.01 - 260GB
Solid State Drive
No Optical Drive
No Modem
WIFI
Mac O/S X
Wide Screen
12"
Built in camera
MACBOOK 12" RET 8GB 256GB ROSE

Hopefully that is the one you’re talking about and hopefully the one I get! Really newbie question, when it arrives where do I check to see if it has that processor? The bottom? Thanks!!

You can check the model year and other details when you boot it up and click the upper left system menu "About This Mac"

however, the 1.1 Ghz is worrisome, the 2017 model is a 1.2 Ghz chip

Aaaand the bubble is popped! It was fun while it lasted. So if the invoice says one thing and the computer specs say another then I’ll return it based on false advertising. Is it possible to have the the chip and it be 1.1 Ghz?

no, if it's 1.1Ghz, it's an older model, but there still might be a chance that the rep typed in the Ghz wrong on the invoice. Good luck

the whole thing is kind of strange, there is no actual M-7Y32 chip, the chip is called m3-7Y32. Maybe he took the description of the 2015 and typed over the CPU field. Not sure

Well, I am NOT happy with this deal at all..... Ordered the 512gb and the 256gb units and what is being shipped are these processors - COREM-5Y51 (256gb model) and COREM-5Y71 (512gb model). These are the EARLY 2015 Macbook versions, NOT 2016 as stated early on in this thread in post #5.

I definitely did not want early 2015 models.... Once they arrive, they'll promptly be returned.

Don't worry. I am 100% sure you will not get the 2015 model. The IBM store is a mess. Product info is full of inconsistencies and missing info. The specs on your invoice are wrong. People who jumped on this deal earlier this year also had 2015 specs listed on their invoices and they got 2016 model. It's a norm with the IBM used equipment store lol. This store is pretty much not meant for general consumers.

I hope they (IBM) have a better handle on any warranty repairs (if it's ever needed). A shame one can't get Apple to handle it (granted I'd guess the prices for these units would be higher if that's the case).
