Should I buy a Macbook pro mid 2010 or 2011?
Hey guys,I'm having a difficult decision in buying a Macbook pro.My friend is offering me a Macbook pro 2011 for 750 with these specs
4 gb 1333 MHZ
2.3 GHZ Core i5 Sandy bridge processor
320 GB HDD
Intel Graphics HD 3000
Or,I did find a Macbook mid 2010 one for an amazing price,650.
Intel Core i5 Processor 2.53GHz Arrandale
4GB SDRAM RAM
500GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
15.4-Inch Screen, Intel HD Graphics and NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
I'm leaning towards the Mid 2010,but it's three years old and has an older cpu.What's your guy's thoughts?

I don't think you will see much difference in terms of CPU.
The 13" is more portable but in terms of overall performance and specs, the 2010 model (which must be 15"), it's a better deal.
So I would also go with the 2010 model.

For most usage the processor is rarely a limiting factor. If the 15" is in good shape and you prefer the larger screen, go for it. If you want more speed out of it, up the memory to 8gb and install a SSD.
15" MBP (late 2011), iPhone 5
iPad Air, ATV3 Mac Pro 3,1
