    I'm looking to upgrade my current 2009 13" Macbook Pro and was wondering if the prices on used 15" 2010/2011 Macbook Pro models will drop in the coming weeks. Right now I can get one with an i5 processor on eBay for around $1100. How much of a decrease in price can I expect and when can I expect that decrease?

    Thanks!

    Apple probably won't drop the price in their stores or the online store, they'll just remove them from inventory. If you wanna save money I would suggest buying a refurb through Apple or check out Best Buy, cuz I've seen MBP's on sale there occasionally in store, not online.

    If you are looking on ebay, think again. I see some core i5 ones going here for $900!

    With the 15 inch screen? Is there something I'm doing wrong :eek:

    And I should specify that I'm mainly looking for price drops on eBay/Craigslist, rather than from Apple.

    Yep, usually it is a 15" 2.4 (I think), core i5.

    Sometimes you can find core i7's for 1100, but they are super rare..

    Maybe I just live in an area where people are not exactly.... smart, about selling on craigslist ;)


    Just keep an eye on craigslist. Sooner or later there will be a guy selling his, and doesnt know its value. Then jump on it, cause it will be gone the next day.

    As for ebay/craigslist price drops, I am wondering that as well..

    Best place to look for price drops would be resellers. They're trying to get their old stock out.
