Would you trade a 2012 non retina MacBook Pro for a 2010 Mac Pro?
Hi, I need advice on a possible trade, basically I would be trading my MacBook Pro 15 inch non retina for a 2010 Mac Pro. My MacBook Pro is base configured (2.3ghz quadcore 4 gigs of ram, 500 gb harddrive with nvidia gt650m) and his Mac Pro is a 2.8 ghz quadcore xeon with 10gb ram 1 Tb harddrive and a hd 5870 radeon card. I was wondering if this would be a decent trade or would I be losing out. I would use the Mac Pro for 3d modeling and rendering with light coding and some gaming.
The guy wants some cash on top of the trade, but I'm thinking since the Mac Pro is 3 years old it would be a fare trade. I would also be throwing in a few accessories (legitimate copy of office 2011 and speck hard case, about $150 value). What are your thoughts, thank you.

How much cash is he asking to add? Doing a straight trade would be a rip off for the other guy. Your copy of Office 2011 and Speck case doesn't add any value to your end either.

do you need that computer?
Unless your work demands it I feel like it is a downgrade. You are going from one of the best apple laptops (current model) to an outdated huge desktop.
NO macpro hate. Just dont see the point unless you need it for work.
