    Is $750 a good deal for a macbook pro 13" early 2011, with 750 GB on the hard drive and 16 GB RAM, and a 2.3 ghz i5 processor?

    I wouldn't pay more than $500-550 for that machine, personally - it's a base 2011 with upgraded RAM and hard drive, basically (those upgrades aren't worth as much as you may think). It's 4 years old (no more warranty, most likely) and probably has a dodgy battery by now (unless it was replaced).

    Yeah, you can get a 2012 model refurbed from Apple with better processor and a full one year warranty for $829. You would have to add some RAM and HD but those are cheap and can be added later if you really need them. $750 is waayy too much.

    I'm on an early 2011 at work right now, I wouldn't pay that kind of money for a system that performs as this one is. Unless that upgraded 750 GB drive is an SSD, you need to set your expectations much lower.

    Agree with the others. Not worth it. It's at least $150 more than it should be.
