    Hey guys,

    I currently have a Macbook Air 1.86 with the 120 gb HDD that I am trying to trade for a Macbook Pro. I have had 3 offers thus far and was wondering everyone's input on which one is the better of the deals. Even trade for a 2.4 13 inch unibody with Applecare until 2012 and 4gb of ram, a 15 inch 2.53 Macbook Pro unibody plus 200 on my side or a slightly used 13 inch 2.53 unibody with about 8 months on the warranty plus 150 on my side. Look forward to everyones input thanks in advance.

    That would be my last choice. $50 to go to 15" is well worth it. So, I'd either go with option A or B, depending on what screen size you want.

    I'd go for the 15" mbp. The speed and screen size will be worth the extra $.

    If you like the 13" size there is no difference in speed the 13" is faster (only 1sec) at some things. nothing to really talk about.
    both the 13" and 15" will serve you good. but 50 extra for 2" more is a good value. Then only if you would enjoy the bigger laptop.

    I'd go for the 2nd option of the 2.53GHz 15" mbp with $200 on your side.
