I need a Macbook Pro for work. Long and short of it I had a MBP up until Christmas. I sell real estate and worked predominantly from home. I almost always took my iPad on the road and my MBP just sat here only being used by my wife and kids to surf the web. We have a 27" 2.8ghz i7 and since my son got a new Windows laptop for Christmas... My ex purchased it... you can see why it didn't work ... I thought the genius thing to do was sale it. Turn the table... I am now a productivity coach... and I have a productivity coach. Both require me to be in the office 3 days a week. And with an 8 month old at home, I need to be out of the house a minimum of 4 hours per day. He's active and noisy...or is that my wife??? (Last bad joke) If the next refresh is significant I will buy a new one then. I will use the laprop below to photo edit, blog, do create marketing...etc... Choices... A.Price $1300 Used 15" i5 2.4ghz stock MBP Some warranty left, the amount of I'm unsure. (2 to 3 hour drive) B. Asking Price $1,925 New 17" MBP i5 2.53 Base Configuration Full warranty... Some kid sales these in Pittsburgh. Seems to have no complaints from anyone and he's been at it for at least a year. C. Asking price $1,550 Used 17" 2.66ghz Core 2 Duo 8GB RAM 320GB Hard Drive 512MB VRAM Apple Care until March 2012. (2.5 Hour Drive) Your thoughts are appreciated.
