    There is someone that wants to trade his 15" 2009 MBP for my base 2011 13" MBP. The specs on his 15" are 2.4 C2D, 4GB RAM, and dual hard drives (128 SSD Kingston S2 and a 250GB HDD). My 13" 2011 is the base i5 but I will be adding in 8GB RAM.

    He also wants to throw in $75 cash. His laptop is no longer under AppleCare too. Well, even if it was, the optibay HDD voids it anyway.

    Is this a good deal or should I pass?

    Don't do it. You will be getting ripped off. Don't give up your newer machine or you will regret it.

    Not a good idea...don't do it...



    ...heck, if you're going to do that trade, I'd step in and offer my 2010 15" 2.4 i5 for your 2011 13" i5....has AC until 2013 too...I'm not serious about my offer though ;)



    ...just walk away from that guy's offer...

    If he's prepared to give you something like $400 cash in addition, sure. Otherwise, you'd be a fool to do it.

    This "fool" is walking away and going to the Apple store to maybe exchange his 13" for a 15" 2011. :)

    I still think it was silly of him to even consider it. He was going to tailor his decision based on responses he got from this thread.

    I know specifications aren't the only thing to look at in a computer, but it isn't asking too much for people to educate themselves on these things.
