    I have a great deal on the table for a 15" Macbook Pro i5 2.3ghz , 8GB ram for $350. I would be using this for basic desktop use maybe some photoshop here and there but nothing too crazy.

    Think this machine is worth it?

    Any 15" 2011 model is subject to logic board failure due to the GPU. I would stay away.
