    First Mac, What to buy?
    I saved up money for a couple months hoping to buy a MacBook Pro.
    Ill probably use it mostly for basic browsing, music, rarely online games, nothing too heavy like photoshop or video editing, im just gunna use it like I would use my PC. I might take it to school, im not in college, still a senior, but I will be going next year. I mostly stay home tho, so I might use it as a full time desktop, or half time at least. Right now I was looking at Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.0GHz quad-core Intel i7 - Apple Store (U.S.) but I feel like I dont really need a quad-core i7 for what im going to do, but I also couldnt really find anything cheaper, like a Mid 2010. Thats the cheapest best thing I found, im not sure if I should get that, or keep looking for a mid-2010 dual core i5 for around 1000. Any help would be appreciated, thanks alot guys

    Any current MBP will be more than powerful enough. Apple refurbs are great deals; wouldn't hesitate a bit on going for one.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Yes indeed. Apple Certified Referbs are fantastic buys. Normally, you can get a better machine for hundreds of dollars less then it would cost you to get that same machine brand new. Any current revision of the MacBook Pro will be more than powerful for what your looking to do.
