    Well, I decided I wouldn't buy an Air as I said I'd always get a Pro over an Air. Now... is the below spec worth the money?



    Macbook Pro 6,2 Mid 2010 Model (Loaded with 10.8.2 Mountain L:ion
    15" Screen (1440x900 Native Resolution)
    2.4GHz Intel Core i5 Processor
    8Gb DDR3 1333MHz Ran
    1 x 500GB Hard Drive
    Nvidia GeForce GT 330M 256Mb Graphics
    2 x USB 2.0 Ports
    1 x Firewire 800MB/s Port
    1 x Mini DVI Port
    1 x Gigibit Ethernet Port

    What's in the box:

    1 x 15" Apple Macbook Pro 6,2

    According to MacRumors, the MacBook Pro is nearing the age for an update soon, and the MBP that you listed seems a little shabby as far as specs. Only 256 MB of VRAM can only take you so far, and you don't get Thunderbolt (I know, not a deal breaker, but it is a versatile port). If you can, I honestly say if you can, wait. If Apple releases a new MBP in the near future, you'd probably see prices go down a bit on 2011 MBPs, and, of course, get better specs.
    But that's just my 2 cents, and I'm not sure what you're doing with it...
