To Sell or Not to Sell - iMac 27" Mid-2011
Hello All -
Trying to decide whether or not to sell my iMac for something more portable. I originally purchased the iMac for light photo editing and home video composition, but have found that I have rarely used it in the last 12 months. I have an office set up and typically work at my desk for business purposes on a business issued PC, but it is a rare occasion that I sit at my desk solely to use my iMac. I sit at a desk all day, whether I work at home or on location, and when I get home I really don't feel like sitting at a desk any more, I find myself preferring to sit on the coach or at a table with the rest of the family in the room.
I do still have video conversions (from 8mm to digital) to complete (quite a bit in fact) and know that the iMac is ideal, but can't get myself to sit down at my desk long enough to complete this.
Anyway, I have it listed on eBay and Craigslist and have had a few offers come in, but not as much as I'd like. I purchased this machine new about 13 months ago and have only used it a hand full of times, so it's in mint condition. I realize that I'm not gonna get what I paid for it, but I'd like to get enough to replace it with something portable that's comparable in power. I'd like to at least get around $1,400 net...
Here's the specs of my iMac:
2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with 6MB on-chip shared L3 cache
12GB memory 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM
1 TB Hard Drive, DVD SuperDrive
you can see it here:
Here's what I'm considering:
Either a 13" or 15" rMBP from Apple's Refurb store
Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.5GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 with Retina Display
8GB of 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
128GB Flash Storage
Intel HD Graphics 4000
Refurbished MacBook Air 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7
256GB flash storage
Intel HD Graphics 4000
Help me make my decision!!!
