    For just over $300 more you could get brand new macbook pro...if you really like his (nvidia,and ssd as factors),maybe offer him $700

    Thanks for the info. Looks like it will run it but probably be obsolete soon enough. Maybe i'll buy a newer one.

    I'll sell you my White Mid-2010 Macbook with 4GB RAM, a 64GB SSD and a 250GB HDD in an Optibay for less than that. I'm getting an Air for school. Message me if interested.
