    I was thinking of buying the MacBook Pro 13 inch from powermaxx because they'll give me 550 for my 4 year old imac with a broken superdrive. I was wondering when the last time they were upgrade because last time I bought a mac, the new ones came out 2 weeks later. Lastly, for the people who own one, how would it do for a computer that will most likely be sitting on a desk to be used as a home computer/ being brought to the couch.

    I got a MacBook Pro 15 inch, and I mostly use it at home, and it is a good computer, already using it something like a year and I still love it. So yes, I would recommend you to buy it.

    New Macs are usually around the beginning of the year, and the first aluminum macbooks, which came out last year in october.
