I'm snooping around Craigslist locally for a great deal on a used MBP for my daughter since, being in a college town, many students sell theirs after graduation. I can pick up a nice 2011-2012 model for $450-650. That's in my price range, but can some of you Mac people coach me on whether or not that's a good deal...or if u need to stay away from those year model machines. FYI...all she will do is some basic email/surfing for the most part. She asked for a Mac because her friends have them! Lol! Thanks for the help.
