given the number of issues arising about the graphics issues /GPU failures on the 2011 MBP 15" models, I decided to get rid of mine while it is still in perfect, functioning shape. As such, Amazon has offered me $700 in trade-in credit if I send it to them. This is for a laptop in "excellent condition", and I truly believe mine meets that condition. I have also instructed them to return it to me if they do not agree in the condition of the macbook. Anyway, before I send it out, I thought I would get some opinions? Should I go through with this? If I do, is it worth the restriction in only buying a new apple computer from Amazon? Thanks in advance.
