    Please help??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!
    I have decided to buy a MacBook Pro 17", and have decided to buy a refurbished product from the Apple website and purchase Applecare. Now my question is: Why does the 2.93 ghz processor laptop have 320gb hard drive space and the 2.8 ghz processon laptop has 500gb hard drive space? is the model that has the 2.93 ghz processon an older model? please help me because im about to buy a macbook pro literally within the next half hour!!!

    Here is the website at which im buying MacBook Pro - Apple Store (U.S.)

    I believe the 2.8 GHz is a newer model.... either of them are brilliant buys!

    PS welcome to Mac Forums
    ... also, when there are people online people will come to the table and answer any questions you have.
    Another point, in future when posting a thread, be specific as to what you are asking in the title, such as Buying MBP in the next hour, which one of the two?
    People who post threads saying PLEASE HELP, URGENT, ETC are likely to get looked past!

    +1 to what 6string my mate said ... And give it more than 29mins before you start to bump things.

    This isnt like ANY OTHER FORUM either

    Welcome and enjoy

    I'll third the sentiment! Also, bumping in a half-hour when your first post was at ten minutes to two in the morning? Ouch.

    Also, despite legends to the contrary, larding up your post title with extra ?s and !s rather than useful info doesn't help either. Just FYI.

    Ok people.....
    Thanks to all for the backup ....It really is appreciated, but I think we have made our point now!
    To the OP, not trying to scare you off, just helps save time and get relevent help when stating the sitch, as well as making it clear for others googling or searching the Forum

    As you can see you have gotten plenty of responses...although not for the reasons you expected.

    Have a little more faith next time...no need to post what I quoted above!

    The more specific your title, the more likely people will take the time to read it. Making it vague and adding lots of questions marks will only make people scroll past it.

    Alright i get the point lol. I bought the 2.8 ghz mbp and cant wait for it to arrive. I almost bought another pc, but my neighbor has a mbp and he loves it so i decided to check it out. I currently run linux on my dell. My grandfather was a mac guy and my girlfriends father is a mac guy so i think this will be a good experience. thank you for all the replys, and sorry for being immature to forums. i will deffenetly be posting back here again since i have no idea about mac osx and im glad there is a place like this for me to get help.
