that's MY problem, buddy!

I have EXACTLY the same temptation!

With the same computer too!

Well, my considerations: which computer do you have currently?
For what are you using the computer predominantly? And how (do you carry it a lot etc.)?
The 2.5 is a great machine, really tested on the road and it have had no problems along the years. On the other side, the new unidoby is really great, and it is absolutely robust.
It's hard, man!
Really hard to decide, with those prices!
Let me know what you decide, plez. I'm in a mess too for this

well, in this case I would suggest the MacBook. It is a really a robust machine, even if the old macbook pro has a good graphics board.
The new mac book (the unibody aluminium) is also lighter (2 kilos instead of the 2.45 of the 15) and a great monitor. I think that 13'' would be more than enough for a everyday use. Really portable and robust!

another thing: refurbish is not new. It could be that it will come with some scratches. If you're ok with that, it works fine. But you have to know that refurbish was owned by someone before!

Apple sells quality refurbished machines. The performance and display quality will be better than the new MB. Besides, the MBP will even have FW400.

Unibody MBP, iPhone, Canon 1DsII, Profoto and most important, Imagination!

Macbook Pro. It is the last of the previous gen so all the kinks were worked out. Point of fact on refurbished, I bought one for my wife. Hers did have a problem, but this is Apple we are talking about. When she gets home we are sending it off for repairs no questions asked and if that fails we have promise of a new machine as in a NEW MBP. Apple quality is good since Asus is the ODM, so you know it is a quality product.

Being 12, it is probably going to need to last you for a few years. So I would say get the most power for your money with the most expandability. That would be the MBP. Hope this helps.

BEing 12, you will want to play games. So get the MBP. My Penryn MBP I just sold was an awesome gaming rig, playing crysis with no problems. My new MBP is even better, however the new MB will not be so good with an integrated video chipset.

Better speakers really shouldn't be a deciding factor in which laptop you choose to purchase since you can buy a great set of external speakers for $30 or so.

But to answer your question, I have no idea, but I would assume it would be the MBP.

I would choose the MPB. I really think the only thing you would gain from the new MB is just having the latest and greatest.
