To be honest at this point I wonder if I should just save $1500 for the upcoming rumored Corei5 model; but with all the iPad news I wonder if it'll ever happen this Spring. MacBook Aluminum UniBody 13" or the MacBook Pro 13" - either one of the current platform, although nice, has been 2yrs old already and everyone with the base MacBook Aluminum Unibody or MBP 13" Unibody (even the Polycarbonate Unibody) is asking $1000 - 1600 CAN for it on other boards like ehmac/craigslist/kijiji. I see this is a rip off! Their NOT Apple, Inc - just people selling a used, and possibly loved, but so many ads state "Apple is selling this product for $1xxx (Canadian) dollars blah blah. Nobody is flexible - even somebody selling the MB Aluminum Unibody with no charger their dog chewed up. I think charging less than $300 from retail price for a 6mth or 8mth laptop - all components STOCK - is a rip off because there is no "community" or "instant know how" that comes with buying a used Mac. Yes I CHOOSE to switch to a Mac but buying one used when either A) No warranty (or ability to upgrade warranty), or B) scratches, oil or scuff marks doesn't warrant a close to new BNIB pricing that the Apple Stores charge. And yes, I've sold used products often (my former cellphones & PS3) and bit the bullet - often charging fair pricing that is comparative to others already selling their products or undercutting by $50-100. I was able to find a loop-hole in how HP does their warranty: which screwed me over & the retailer 45days after purchase and was able to get my refund. I've got just under $800CAN for a Late 2008 MB Aluminum Unibody with all accessories, box, charger, and discs. So I'm looking for a helping guidance hand or two to help me find a non-broken, non-water splashed, non-dropped, non-dupleted battery MacBook Aluminum UniBody 13" or MBP 13" for the $800 price range. I will use this machine for: Windows Applications/Mac Applications Java coding using Eclipse & learning to code for BlackBerry Ableton Live 7-9 & or Logic for music production (something I've been wanting to do for over 22yrs!!). Can anybody help or point a helping hand to where I can purchase in Toronto; I prefer to meetup so that I can inspect it and not get a lemon. Ehmac is looking dry lately. Craigslist is abundant but again many only want close to new prices and mixup specs. Kijiji is also lookin dry lately.
