I just sold my 6 month old 13" base MacBook Pro for $1,050 on eBay. After fees and shipping, I netted around $950. I then bought a Mac mini and 8GB of RAM from Amazon for $617. I also purchased a 16GB iPhone 4S for $200. So, I now have a better performing and much quieter system, a new iPhone, and $133 in my pocket and couldn't be happier. Mac mini FTW! BTW, if anyone wants to buy a new rain mStand, let me know.
