Need to know if this one is worth it.

the 2009 mbp13 does not have a nv 320m that was introduced just this year. it has a *much* lesser videocard. i would get a new mbp13 for 999 instead. the 15 might be better but scratched? mmm not me.

I only have $1000 cash And I'm coming from a 17 mbp that I had to sell to make rent so I'm left with $1000 to work with. I'd like to get a new 13 but then there's tax and then having to upgrade the memory (I maxed out 320) I'm I'm very limited right now. Hmmm

Idk. He said he bought it from apple 3 months ago but I pulled his serial number and it's listed mid-2009 so i think he's lying?
must be a mistake since 2009 models didn't have the 320M IGP

those specs sound exactly like my 13" 2010

So assuming that the 13" is really the 09 with the older graphics which would be better for the price? The 15" or this 13"?
I know I gaining more HD space and screen size and a bigger speed bump, what would you guys do?

unless you want a 15" screen, I'd go for the 13" especially if it's in excellent condition
Ah he just emailed me said he made an mistake. The 13" is a 2.26 GHz
Hard Drive 160GB 5,400RPM Serial ATA Hard Drive
So is it still worth it over the 15" 2.8 GHz? Or is it to old?

Sadly the 15" 2.8 seller was mistaken and listed it at a 500gb when having checking it out, I discovered it was actually a 320gb. She felt stupid.
I eventually talked her down to $970 so I could use the extra $30 to buy SL...

So I'm now a owner of a Mid-2009 15" 2.8 Ghz 320 GB in actually great condition besides the bottom was a little scruffed for only $970!!

Did I do good? Or will I be kicking myself in the a** later?
