    I want an old macbook for school. I can either get a 2009 15'' MBP, or a 2011 13'' MBP. Both are the same price... Which would be best for me?

    The 2011 13" MBP is faster, because it's got a CPU that supports hyper threading.

    Plus, if you stick in a SATA3 SSD, it'll really shine.

    The newer model will be faster but you'll be dealing with a smaller screen. So I guess is do you want a laptop that is a bit more portable but slower or a larger faster model?

    Personally, I'd opt for the newer one, as that should be more "future proof", i.e., last longer.
