Hey guys,

I just sold my 2011 MBP to snag a 27" iMac and an air. Like most of the people on here, I'd sure like to have the latest shiny mac product, but I'm just not sure the new mba is worth it for me.

Basically I'll be using it to watch netflix, fantasy football (draft, sundays, etc) and MAYBE some light gaming and remote video editing (most of this will be done on the iMac).

I'd like to have the new model for the processing power, but the 750 for the refurbed 2010 11" is mighty tempting. It's between the 2010 base model and the 2011 11" 128 / 4gb.

Also, it seems like maybe using it like a quasi-tablet, the 2010 with snow leopard might actually be snappier than the new one with Lion. Maybe I'm wrong.

Anyways, thanks for any input you provide. Either way, I'm excited for the new gear.

The refurbished deals really aren't that great when you take into account the massive leap in performance the 2011 model brings. Base 13" seems to be the best value.
