So, I just traded my MacBook Pro 2011 base 13" model with a downgraded hardrive (only 250gb). I posted it on Craigslist for $950. This guy traded me his base MacBook air (2010) + $400 in cash, then threw in over $100 in accessories. I effectively bought a 2010 MacBook air with 75 battery cycles for $450 that's in mint condition. NO it doesn't have a backlit keyboard NO it doesn't have an i5 processor NO it doesn't have 4GB ram But... I did just buy a 2011 iMac on Amazon for $691 after credit card rebates, etc., so I'm not worried about processing power. Would you have done the same or spent an extra $500 on the 2011 base Air? I know my ideal computer was the 2011 $1199 model with 4GB ram, but I couldn't pass this up!
