So I am new to Macbooks and have the same/similar question. I'm looking at the new unibody vs MBP refurb on Apple.com. The use will be for home for the family but I am a power user and may play around with the notebook as well. I also am looking at purchasing a 2nd for my son who is in school for 'game design' and they use Mac's a lot.

Any other suggestions?
