My MacBook Pro is dead. It only has a ? In the middle of a file folder when I try to boot it and I have tried every troubleshooting hint I have found to no avail so I'm pretty sure the hard drive is gone plus the battery was already gone anyway. I do not have the money to buy a new one or even an Apple refurb. Mine was an early-2011 model, purchased brand new in July 2011. I see MBs on eBay that are more recent than my MBP for $250 and $300. At this point I have no computer at all and I really need something but I am completely broke. For what I do even an older MacBook would work, I don't think I ever really used the pro to it's full potential. Am I crazy for considering buying a MacBook off eBay?
