My girlfriend is in the market for a MBP, so I've been helping her scan craigslist for decent deals. I emailed this guy about his 2010 MBP (2.66 i7 version) simply asking what the Apple Care status was. His response was classic - either the guy's a total liar, or he knows jack about computers/Apple Care policy/hard drive prices: RE: Apple Care status "It ended April 19. Machine in perfect condition. You can order Apple Care yourself for the next two years if you choose. Important note, there is another quad core available which is only a 2.O quad core compared to my 2.66 dual core (my top of the line dual core is faster than this bottom of the line quad core) and once again you'd need top spend $100 to upgrade the Hard drive to the faster 7200RPM on top of the retail price of over $1800 which Amazon asks for the lower end (2.0 GHz quad core). I send this so you have a clear picture of the differences in the machines and in the prices, if not for buying from me, for buying from anyone, the different models and their comparisons can be confusing. Not every quad core is better or faster than every dual core, especically when factoring in price. My model has a Hitachi 500GB 7200 and is blazing fast."
