    Hey guys,

    Do you guys think 1199€ is a good buy for this?

    Model: MD318 (Late 2011).

    - Intel® Core™ i7 - 2,20GHz
    - LED 15,4"
    - 4096MB RAM
    - 500GB
    - ATI Radeon HD 6750M

    This model get's a geekbench score of around 10185 while the current 2012 base model get's 11731. The current 2012 base model will cost me an extra 800€...

    :( I really didn't want to buy an "old" computer, but it looks like a really good deal actually.

    What do you guys think?

    good price

    I think that's a pretty good price. Yeah Ivy Brigde is awesome, but it's not worth the extra 800 euros... there will be people that will disagree with me. what are you going to be using it for mainly?

    Thanks.

    Well, my main uses for it will be Final Cut Pro, After Affects, Photoshop, Illustrator and a couple other photo/video editing software.

    Will be editing Full HD footage off me DSLR and processing RAW image files.

    I won't be gaming at all on the machine. Well maybe an occasional Facebook game or two :p

    Yes it is a good price and I'd probably get one myself for €1200. They were priced at €1749 only a few weeks ago (before the update) and where I am now I'm seeing them at €1479 lowest, still too much for previous generation tech IMO. I'll see if I can get someone here to match that price (BTW is that an online store or a shop you're getting it from?).

    I actually think that's a little pricey:/

    I'm selling my mac on craigslist for $1450 USD, and there hasn't been a legit buyer yet...
    And this is my spec:
    2011 MBP 2.2Ghz, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Hi-Res Screen and the rest is not customized. But if you think that's a good deal, pull the trigger:)

    With Photoshop in mind I personally wouldn't want anything that doesn't have the hi res screen.
