    Hi I am looking to buy a used mac book pro. I am going to use it for daily use, IOS programming and other programming, and light video editing and Photoshop. Also I am probably going to upgrade the ram to 8gb and put in a SSD to any one that I get.

    Here are the choices I have:

    I need a response ASAP. also if you find any other used ones that would be good please send them to me.

    Thanks!

    1st or 3rd really. Performance wise 3rd would give you the best bang providing you slap an ssd in there

    actually i found a different 2 to choose from. ok so I know i posted this before but now i have narrowed down to 2 final options. I will mainly be using it for Xcode, other programming, daily use, and light video editing and Photoshop. I am going to upgrade to 8 gb of ram and a ssd regardless of which one I get.

    So which one is more worth it, performance wise, condition wise, etc .

    here are the links:

    Didn't look at condition but the 2012 model gives better flexibility if you choose to upgrade
