I'm tending to lean the other direction, with a caveat. I'd be inclined to go with the less expensive 2009 model, and use some of the saved money to replace the drive with a hybrid drive to improve performance. A 500gb Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive goes for about $119 at Amazon right now, and provides some of the speed benefits of an SSD drive with a high speed hard drive. Reviews have been very good about this drive. Also, if you use this computer for a year, even two, odds are you can get about 80-90% of what you paid back out of it. The newer computer would be more like 65-75%.
