If you are ever down in the Victoria area, I believe Simply Computing also takes in trades, so you may want to also give them a call and see what they can offer you.


BTW: I thought SINC's suggestion of using an external Desktop SSD was excellent, especially considering Apple's stubbornness and their lack of versatility with most models.

Exactly, how thin does it need to be? These are not iPads. Other companies have done amazingly thin laptops without locking you in like Apple has. This is what Apple used to excel at, balance of form and function. Now Apple has tilted way to far into form and ignoring function. It is why I have trouble calling the MacBook Pros real "pro" machines as they are so limited after you buy. Now the Mac Pro is way over the other side, so much power, no needed by most people. I could use a Mac Pro, but it is way over kill for design and print. It is a great upgradeable machine but starting price is far to high, they need a toned down version that is more suited for pro use that is not in the extreme.

That is probably one of the main reasons the resale price stays so high for used models. But still usually too high for most users.

Hi,

I was at that Simply Computer, Victoria a few years ago. Once I have the new computer up and running for awhile I'll see if I can donate it locally. It still works fine so I'll try Simply computer but I doubt I'll get much for it if nobody wants it locally. We seldom visit Victoria except for Remembrance Day if we are around or visit friends in Brentwood Bay.
Sinc's suggestion would work but I'm trying to keep things simple for my wife. I'm not that young anymore.

Thanks, Sonny
