    Hi, i've been an ios user since the 3gs came out and have been without a working laptop for a few months and am going back to school. the company i am with is offering used macbook pros at a (i think) good discount. the specs are:

    15.5 inch
    i5 2.53
    4gb
    500gb hdd
    dvdrw
    no software(there is the base os and that's all)

    for $720

    is this a good deal?

    Thanks, much appreciated.

    I dunno how good it is but I'd pay that..

    Keep in mind that it's mid 2010 though.

    Mac2Sell says that computer is worth $1140.

    Ebay says it is worth about $750 on average.

    I would say it is about what they should be sold for depending on the condition.

    If you could haggle it down to $700 even or even $650, that would be a *deal*

    $720 is meh.

    $650 is about right. It's almost 4 years old now and, more importantly, can't accept more that 8GB RAM, has a SATA2 bus for the drives, and doesn't have Thunderbolt.
