    Ok,

    I have a friend with a 2011 (model # MC966LL/A) MacBook Air

    Specs:
    • Intel Core i5 Processor 1.7GHz
    • 4GB DDR3 RAM
    • 256GB Solid-State Drive
    • 13.3-Inch Screen (1440x900)
    • Mac OS X Mountain Lion
    Its in MINT / new condition and he wants $740 for it..
    I think this is a killer deal but want to see what others think..
    Thanks in advance!

    Since I didn't get any responses I did an eBay and Craigslist search...

    Looks like they sell for anywhere between $1000 and $1200

    I purchased it last night for $740..

    My friend was selling it to buy the MacBook Pro Retina and gave me a killer deal on it..

    The more researching I do into it, the better and better the price / deal is looking...

    I am happy! Not a mark or scratch on it as I expected because he takes very good care of his toys... Almost looks like it was purchased yesterday!

    Congrats! I sold an earlier version for $999 to get the same one you have for retail price. Great deal for you. Like your friend, I also upgraded to an MBPr (kids have MBA now). Awesome systems.

    Great deal indeed! Always nice to buy from a friend. I'm actually looking for a new laptop too for school but don't know what to get.
