    I want to buy an used macbook pro and those are my options:

    Macbook Pro 17" intel core ¡7 2.66GHZ, 500GB, 8GB RAM $ 1450 (mid 2010)
    Macbook Pro 15" Intel Core i5 2.4GHZ, 320GB, 4GB RAM $ 1050 (mid 2010)
    Macbook Pro 13" intel core i7 2.8GHZ, 750GB, 4GB RAM $ 1350 (late 2011)

    I want it for personal use i dont need it for music or design, maybe light programming on ipad/ipod touch (amateur)....
    but $$ vs Specs wich could be the best option?

    Without knowing anything about you or your situation, I'd say the 15" is the best value. It's the cheapest, and I think 15" is the sweet spot for screen size.

    Take the money you save and buy a 256GB SSD.

    Actually i was thinking on the 15" as a best option, as you said price and needs... and i think too that 15" is a good size...
    I was thinking on buying a momentos xt hybrid 500gb hard disk and 4gb ssd, its suppose to be big, cheap and fast...
    what you think?

    I've heard mixed reviews about the hybrid drives. If you scan the forums, you can find lots of discussion on them. I had thought about getting one previously, but I bit the bullet and got an SSD. For me, it was the right choice.
