    Which of the three would be better to buy used and why?

    2010 models seem to have had graphics problems so I'm steering clear of those altogether. Base-model Early 2011 seems a bit anemic on VRAM so those should probably be avoided too, while upgraded Early 2011, Late 2011 and Mid 2012 seem pretty similar.

    Mid-2012.

    Ivy Bridge processors.

    nVidia graphics, so no "Radeon-gate."

    Faster RAM.

    USB3.
