    Man I wouldn't pay anywhere near $1600 for that, the 9400M sucks.

    Its only 200 less then a new base 15 inch not counting the software. Personally for 200 bucks I would go new but thats me and you don't say where your from.

    No way. I would try to save a bit longer and pay a few hundred dollars more for a new i5.

    The only reason I'm staying away from the new i5/7's are because I have been hearing so many problems with them about heating, freezing, etc...!!! I'm from Canada btw.

    I would only pay between 1100-1200. I just sold my 2007 SR Macbook Pro 15" for $900.
