    MacBook Pro; is it worth it?

    So I'm looking into getting a MacBook Pro and I have an offer from a teacher of mine for this one:
    MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.9 13" Mid-2012 Specs (Mid-2012 13", MD102LL/A, MacBookPro9,2, A1278, 2554*) @

    For 900$. My first question is, is this a fair price on this? And my second question is would it be worth it to get this one, or should I just get a brand new one? I really don't know much about these things so any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Well seeing that model originally retailed for almost $1500, and the equivalent model costs $1450 today, seeing Apple products tend to hold their price, I guess you are getting a reasonable deal at $900 provided it is in good condition. If possible always ask to see the device running before you purchase second hand. As to whether you should just buy a new one....well, that depends on whether to can afford to shell out a further $550. A second plus with buying new is that you get a standard one year warantee, and secuirity when you use a credit card....can't say that with purchasing second hand.
