I have an old Mac mini that works fine, albeit a bit slowly. I'm ready to make the jump to a laptop and I had my eye on the non Retina MBP. However, I know that it is 2 years old. I would like an SSD, but the prices remind me of the price of HDD back in the late 80s--best to wait until prices come down. Is there any reason that this machine is so out-of-spec that only a madman would buy one? I'm planning on putting in more RAM myself and a larger, faster HDD myself if that influences your recommendation. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
