Good evening everyone, I put myself in a situation. (You can skip to the bottom and just give me advice on what I should do, by just reading whats in (****___****) I just wanted to give information on my situation, so it can better help you, help me. I am a college student, and I always wanted a macbook pro. (For the feel/appearance of it, how fast it was, and all the programs that came with it and since it was known for not catching viruses). Plus I knew that when I bought it I wouldn't have to buy another computer for the rest of my life. (Only Batteries, and warranty extensions). With that being said I rushed into it, without researching anything and went out and bought the MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011) MD322LL/A 15.4"/2.4 Quad-core i7/2x2GB/750-5400 Model. Retailed at about 2200 after taxes, and I also bought it with the ADH warranty ($400) from best buy, and the buyback program option ($30), with the printer. ($100) Spent about $2700 Recently I noticed that I don't use my computer a lot, well as much as I use to use my old windows 7 acer computer and since it is used lightly, only for video chatting, watching movies, editing photos, web browsing and homework. I figured that I might as well get rid of it and buy a cheap macbook pro that could perform the same functions and still get the job done, but also last, with me keeping more money in my pocket! Which I could use towards a lot of important things. ***So my situation is that I am thinking about selling my macbook pro that I purchased on oct. 27th. Its looks and still runs brand new, No cosmetic blemishes and I already put it up for $2000, People think it goes for $2500 so with it being fairly new and all, I figured I'd get offers close to that and just take it as long as its over $1800, because I will get a pro-rated refund for the warranty and I'm keeping the printer So I would lose about $400. (I already got offers close to the price, but don't won't to sell it if it's not a good idea too). Reason why I would sell: I wanted to buy an older and bigger macbook pro model preferably the one in (June 2009) 17" MCA226LL/A model and I was wondering if I should? If not I would just buy the Mid 2009 one, with the same screen size as the one I have now. I know that its a Core 2 Duo Processor, but knowing that I will only use it for web browsing, video chatting, uploading and editing photos, doing homework, and watching movies. Would this be a good idea, like would I feel any difference in the 2009 model compared to the 2011? If so what would the difference be? as I know they look the same. Here are the specs of the Macbook Pro I would buy from uBid: Apple MacBook Pro MC226LL/A Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz 4GB 500GB 17" or Apple MacBook Pro MB986LL/A Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz 4GB 500GB http://www.ubid.com/Apple_MacBook_Pro_MB986LL/A_Core_2_Duo_2.8GHz_4GB_500GB_15.4"/a603281632.html or Apple MacBook Pro MB985LL/A Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz 4GB 320GB http://www.ubid.com/Apple_MacBook_Pro_MB985LL/A_Core_2_Duo_2.66GHz_4GB_320GB_15.4"/a603281631.html (Should I trust this site) -I'm not worried about the Cosmetic Wear & Tear, as I can just get a cover. As for my buyer options: I found the old ones on ebay manufactured refurbished for about 1100-1200 and some on ubid.com (for $1070 re-certified) and I was also wondering should I trust buying it from ubid? I would get a 90-day guarantee and buy the 2 year square-trade warranty that covers a lot. Plus I would have an extra $1000 in my pocket, plus the macbook pro.**** Should I do this, or should I keep my new macbook pro, knowingly that I'm not a hard PC User? Everyone's advice is greatly appreciated as I am looking forward to doing this, but don't won't to if it's a bad idea.
