A friend of mine is selling me his classic macbook pro 15 mid 2012 here are the specs: 2.6GHz Quad Core i7 Ivy Bridge Processor Crucial Brand 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Samsung Brand 830 Series SATA 6Gb/s 512GB SSD Drive Hi-Resolution 1680x1050 Screen NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB Video Memory He made the updates by itself the system was originally 8gb ram and 750 gb hdd; ( he is also including the 8gb ram memory and the hard drive) Also he is giving me 2 Western Digital My Passport 2TB External USB3 Hard Drives and a extra 85W Power Supplies. He is selling me all this for 1955$ I dont know if this is a good deal, I was going to buy a MBA 13 i7 with 256-512gb ssd but he says this is better. I would be using this for college CAD Software, Adobe Suite and some windows only apps. Do you think that it would be good to buy my friend laptops or buy a new mba 13? The battery cycle on his mbp is just 11 cycles. Thanks hope you can assist me in the decission! He says it is a great deal but I think it is overpowered for me. Also one of the things I found is that the mba has the new haswell processor and this mbp is still ivy bridge! PD: Im a mechatronics and electrical engineer student 2 year, I use a lot LABVIEW, MATHLAB, SOLIDWORKS, AUTOCAD.
