It's time to upgrade. I have a late 2008 15" Macbook Pro with 320GB HDD, 2.66GHz processor, upgraded to 8GB RAM. Battery was replaced about two years ago. Cosmetically it's a 7/10. It's also running on Snow Leopard. Sometimes the trackpad can be a little funky, figure there could be something under there causing it to stick a little bit intermittently. These days I haven't bothered with it much since I use my work MBP for most everything, but that's going to be going away, hence the need to upgrade. I'd like to buy used or upgrade my current machine and stay with the 15" size. Budget is < $1000. Would be nice to have an SSD but don't know if that's in the budget. Computer will be used for web development, personal use, movies etc. Options as I see them: 1. Buy 2012 MBP non-retina (the hi-res anti-glare screen looks nice, is it worth the extra cost?) 2. Buy 2012 MBP retina (would be stretching my budget, not sure if I could get one with decent specs in my price range) 3. Upgrade my late 2008 MBP. Swap in SSD and install El Capitan. Obviously the less I spend the better, but I want something that can remain viable for a few years, hopefully leaving me the opportunity to upgrade/swap hardware.
