Thinking about getting my mom one. Saw a 13" Macbook Pro 2012 for sale on Craigslist for $800. Also saw some cheap ones on Gainsaver but didn't see that many 2012s. http://www.gainsaver.com/catalog/list.aspx?&CCode=1015^Apple&CCode=2139^Macbook+Pro A refurbished 2012 macbook pro 13 inch is $999 http://store.apple.com/us/product/FD101/refurbished-macbook-pro-25ghz-dual-core-intel-i5 vs a newer one is $1199 http://store.apple.com/us/buy-mac/macbook-pro?product=MD101LL/A&step=config lol @ not that much difference. I am finally almost done weaning myself off of Windows 7. Only thing left is to find a good DVD burning program that's as fast and efficient as ConvertXtoDVD program for PC.
