I'm going to get an Apple of some sort, either a MB or MBP. My budget is $1500 so that's either the last gen MB maxed out or a new base MB or a last gen 15" refurb 2.5 MBP. Both last gen models will have 667 memory while the new MB has 1066 memory. I'll need to run a couple of windows apps at times that aren't available in Apple versions. I'm not sure which version to go with. All comments welcomed and appreciated.
