Hello, What does everyone think of this trade scenario? I have a 15 inch Macbook Pro from 2010 with the high-res matte display, 2.53 ghz i7, 500 GB HD, and 512 MB video card. It was $2500 when i got it almost 3 years ago. I replaced the battery in mine 2 months ago, so the battery is good. The value is around $1100 My friend wants to trade, for the bigger screen and his wife wants a DVD drive. ere's what he's selling: Macbook Air 13inch with 1.7 ghz i7, 256 GB SSD, USB 3.0, mid-2012 model. It was a fully loaded one when he got it, mint condition. He paid around $1900 for it and the current value seems to be about $1400. Plus, it's got another 2 years of AppleCare left on it. I want a smaller and lighter laptop and the USB 3.0 ports, but how will the speed compare. Of course, they are both i7's. But mine is higher GHz. His has the SSD, which I know can affect speed drastically. So what do you all think? Is this a fair trade? Because of the price differences, he asked me to throw in an extra $300. Can someone please give some feedback on the speed differences? Would it be noticeable? Thanks for the advice.
