macintoshbeav is on a distinguished road
Mac Specs: 17" iMac 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo, 1GB Ram; 15" MacBook Pro, 2.0 GHz Intel CoreDuo processor, 512MB RA

macintoshbeav is offline I want to get a MBP to replace my iBook G4 (I know the iBook's not that old...get over it)...Do I go for a brand new one $1799 with my educational discount, or should I get a refurbed one for $1549? The new one has a 2.0GHz Duo and the refurb has 1.83, but other than that, the specs are the same? Advice?
QUOTE Thanks
