    Default Deal or No Deal?

    So I bought a used 13" MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) MD102LL/A. Never bought a used computer. I just wanted your guys opinions on rather I got a good deal or if it was worth the risk. Also need you guys to help justified my investment and eliminate my potential buyer's remorse lol.

    Here's the configurations:

    2.9GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
    8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    256GB Solid State Drive
    SuperDrive 8X

    (Brand new from Apple this model cost $1699 so I got it for half the price at $850)

    I also talked to SquareTrade as long as I buy the warranty within 30 days of my purchase then I can buy an extended warranty (accident prone after warranty is expired for some reason) for my used MacBook Pro. The company whom I bought it from offers 30 day return and 60 day warranty. I received MacBook Pro yesterday everything appears to be working fine and in described condition, scratch on the top case, besides that it looks to be in good condition. I damaged my old MacBook Pro (Mid 2010) keyboard.

    I think you did alright...
    I estimate yours to be (roughly) similar to this MacBook Pro (2014) ~ minus the Retina display:
    13-inch: 2.6GHz
    with Retina display
    2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
    Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz
    8GB 1600MHz memory
    256GB PCIe-based flash storage1
    Intel Iris Graphics
    Built-in battery (9 hours)2
