    That link doesn't work for me (reroutes me to Amazon.de, perhaps because I'm from The Netherlands). You might want to post a screenshot including price & specs.

    That's either the Early 2011 or the Late 2011 model. If the Radeon graphics card has 512 MB RAM, then it's the Late 2011 model. If it has 1 GB RAM, then it's the Early 2011 model.

    In any case, if I feed the specs into Mac2sell.net then they estimate a £660 value. In this case, it's boxed and you get warranty as well.

    I think it's pretty decent. It's not a bargain, it's a decent price. Note however, that if you want a nice performant machine, you need to install an SSD. That's going to cost about another 60 quid if you can install it yourself.

    The quad-core i7 is definitely the better one. That 2009 model is a Core 2 Duo (so a dual-core) and is definitely inferior. If you (now or later) upgrade the Late-2011 with an SSD, that thing is going to fly, and will make you happy for years to come.
