    I am in need of cash and bill me later has graciously allowed me to spend about $1200 on a mac. My plan is to sell it immed for about $100-200 loss. what is my best bet for the fastest/easiest/sale. macbook air, pro, etc...or is there something better I could buy? oh and I know its a dumb thing to do, and not responsible, but i need this done...i know the negative aspects.

    I was almost set on the MBA but then this update came out on the pro's and decided to ask here. Also what options should I put on the laptop, or leave it stock?

    Definitely leave it stock. And a Macbook Pro would be your best bet, it's the most popular Macbook Version in the world.

    Get the $1199 model, you should be able to buy it for around $850 in an auction.

    Repost it for $850 buy it now. You'll have it sold within a week or my name's not Bob. Well it's not, but you get the point.

    Definitely stay base stock either 13 new Pro or Air.

    Used? No, maybe $900. I don't see you getting the early 2011 Macbook Pro's sold for $1000.

    idk think he is going to use it. i think he is going to buy it and then just put it up on ebay.
    microcenter has MBP's [base 13 inch] for 1000 bucks [if you live near one] so you could buy these and minimize your losses.
