My sister needs a new laptop. She is a regular user, i.e. web browsing, email, watching movies etc. Nothing heavy. But she wants at least 500GB of storage for her iTunes library. So after looking through all the available models, it looks to me as if the 2012 13" MPB is the best deal for her. It can be had new for $1,100. It has a 500GB hard drive, but as this model has a DVD drive as well, she can later add an SSD and keep the hard drive. Another plus is that she can upgrade the RAM herself should she need more. And she doesn't seem to mind that the old model is heavier than the new ones or the MBA. What do you guys think? Is there any reason she should not buy this one? I just never like to buy old computer technology.
