    if it doesn't have any problems, then keep it, it's not worth selling it and taking a loss if there is nothing wrong with it. Most likely you won't have any problems, and if you do then you can try to fix them your self or just get the new computer then.

    AppleCare is good when you are working with your computer and can't stay one day without. It's still a little bit expensive though. In most other cases, you will be fine with you alu macbook, which is a rare model now... ;)

    any computer is really a risk, but sometimes you just gotta make a choice and live with that choice.
    Best thing that happens computer lives long healthy life.

    Not so great thing. Computer poops out on you and you have to fix it, or just put it on ebay.

    A rare model because the screen is by far the worst thing ever made.

    Care to elaborate? I think mine is actually pretty good quality.

    Some sucked, but some were decent. I luckily got one of the nicer ones, but it still is kinda weak compared to the 13" pro that my parents have.

    I was thinking more that it was rare because of the lack of FW with no 13" model of the Pro with FW to replace it.
