Hello MacRumors, My wife has a late 2011 i5 2.3Ghz 13" Pro. I upgraded the HDD to an 850 EVO (Non-Pro, Trim Enabled) and 8GB RAM. The battery is taking a crap and starting to expand, plus the system feels slow. Additionally, she somehow keeps turning on fire vault, which makes it even slower. My plan is get a new, third party battery (highly rated) on amazon and then sell it. Basically sell hers, my iPad Air ATT 16GB and her 1st generation 16GB iPad mini. None are being used right now. We would then use those funds, plus a little extra to buy a new MacBook. I was thinking about the rMB, but after reading reviews, I have decided against it. I know we are looking at a possible October release for the new MacBook Pros and this thread is not really about whether I should wait or not as that is up to me. My question is that I am seeing a base 13 rMBP Refurb on Apple's site for $1099.00. Also, I see an early 2014 13 rMBP going for $680 on CL in great condition locally. I have a late 2013 fully loaded 27 iMac, so power and storage aren't really an issue. We just need something to use on the go. Do you think these prices sound fair or do you believe they are inflated for how old the chipset is inside the units? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
