    Question Which one should I buy? Macbook Pro series

    Hi. So I want to buy a macbook pro. This will be my first one. I have searched dell, hp, but the design and new software made me choose mac. I have about 1000$ and I'm 16. I choosing between Macbook pro 2011 15" - Macbook pro 2012 13" - Macbook pro 2012 15" NON-RETINA - Macbook pro 2013 13". I don't want to spend all of my money on it so I'm searching on ebay.com auctions. I want to spend about 600-800$. I have a toshiba 17" and want to go down on the inches. I'm not a huge gamer, but I want it to be able to run Planetside 2. So I like the 2013 13 because of the slim but I can't upgrade it. 2012 15 is bigger and I don't really use the dvd drive and the side speakers look awesome. The price is like the 2013 13. The 2012 13 is the most simple and cheapest. So I don't know which one to pick. The 2012 15 looks the best for me, but the price is bigger. I want it to have 8gb ram. I don't really know the diffrence and experience between the ssd and the hdd so there is no diffrence there for me. I know the ssd works faster, but the size is smaller. If I would have a ssd i would want a 256gb. So I want to know which is the best for me and where I could find a cheap macbook pro with no dents .

    I have found a cheap 2012 15" macbook on craigslist. There are a few with a price tag from 700 to 950 and more. I have choosen to buy the 2012 15". Can anybody tell me if craigslist is a safe and a good place to buy a macbook? I have no idea how it works and I need the macbook to ship to EU. My few cousins live in Chicago and I have found the macbooks in New York. How does the payment work?

    Personally, I wouldn't touch Craigslist or anything like it if I was computer shopping. The risks are simply too high.

    If you want a better deal than retail, check out Apple's refurb section. There are some bargains to be had there.
