    I have a 2010 11" Air and was looking to upgrade to a 13" pro.

    Here's what I'm giving:
    2010 11" Macbook Air, 1.6ghz C2D, 128GB SSD, 4GB ram, Apple Super Drive and $200 cash

    I'm getting:
    2011 Macbook Pro 13" i5, 500GB, 4GB Ram.

    Thoughts? Anyone making out better?

    Seems even, but be warned, once you go SSD you don't go back.

    I agree that SSD will be something you would take a good look at but you could add an SSD to the MBP and you would have a screaming machine.

    Take the deal. Trading a slow C2D machine for an i5 is an extreme win, even if the i5 is not a MBA.

    But, you will probably miss the SSD.

    It's not particularly good value for money though, is it? They were the same retail price, originally...?

    I don't know, I pay much more than that $200 to upgrade my machines, usually. :D I don't think it's a terrible deal.
