    So I'm looking to buy a 2011 13 inch MacBook Pro and was wondering what are some things I should look for to make sure it's a 2011 version and isn't stolen? They said that the box and everything is included with it and the specs are i5 processor, 500gb of ram, 4gb 2.4ghz intel hd graphics 3000. I'm trading him a 32 inch LCD Vizio 720p + $700 in exchange. Think that's a good deal? I don't think he has warranty and there is a little scratch on the side

    The specs don't match the mid 2012 model.
    2.4Ghz Processor and Intel HD 3000 are only available in the late 11 models.

    What do you think the TV is worth?

    That is the base 2011 model

    If its an i5 and hd4000 graphics, fair deal

    If its really an i5 and hd3000 graphics, older machine used is about 800-900, so guess that tv ain't worth too much to you

    Yeah my TV is about 5 years old (2007) and is only a 720p and 60hz LCD Vizio. I recently upgraded and listed the price of the TV for $200 on craigslist, but no one really wanted it let alone offered me anything. I'm guessing the TV is worth about $150-$200 used. So now I'm just considering trading it + $700 for this guy's Macbook which he agreed upon. How does that year's Macbook Pro compare with the 2012 or 2010?

    Compared to 2010 - has SandyBridge chipset which is a pretty big upgrade, has Thunderbolt port, can accept up to 16GB RAM, and has SATA III (faster connection for the HDD & possibly the optibay), has SDXC card port

    Compared to 2012 - lacks IvyBridge chipset, which was a small upgrade from SandyBridge, lacks USB-3, lacks improved HD-4000 graphics (which probably won't matter unless you're a light gamer)
