Hi all.My wife needs a new laptop pretty desperately and I/we have never owned a Mac before.I am considering a used machine since my wife wants a 15" and the new models start at 2k. Doing some research I am actually thinking that perhaps the best way to go would be to pickup a 2011 model with spinning hard drive and upgrade to an SSD and bump up the memory as well.Those can be had on CL in the $600 range so bump memory up to 16GB and slide in a 256 or 512 SSD and still come in under a grand. A bit hesitant to buy a 2012 and up model because they are much harder to work on from what I hear.Basically what you see is what you get.With an older machine if there is a failure those are more serviceable so I can change parts myself if needed. She is in Real Estate so her usage would be uploading and editing pictures,creating and editing documents and running multiple Web based apps at the same time-MLS,Work email etc. Happy to hear any advice from the folks here in the forum who undoubtedly know a lot more about the topic than I do. Hoping to get 3-4 years out of the machine and then upgrade. Also happy to hear the argument for going new instead. Thanks in advance.
