Buying a 15" 2010 Macbook Pro now?

Well, I decided I wouldn't buy an Air as I said I'd always get a Pro over an Air. Now... is the below spec worth the money?

950.00

Specification:

Macbook Pro 6,2 Mid 2010 Model (Loaded with 10.8.2 Mountain L:ion
15" Screen (1440x900 Native Resolution)
2.4GHz Intel Core i5 Processor
8Gb DDR3 1333MHz Ran
1 x 500GB Hard Drive
Nvidia GeForce GT 330M 256Mb Graphics
Superdrive
iSight
WiFi
Bluetooth
2 x USB 2.0 Ports
1 x Firewire 800MB/s Port
1 x Mini DVI Port
1 x Gigibit Ethernet Port

What's in the box:

1 x 15" Apple Macbook Pro 6,2
1 x Uk Power Cable
1 x 85W Magsafe Charger
1 x Set of Restore Disks

Thoughts?

According to MacRumors, the MacBook Pro is nearing the age for an update soon, and the MBP that you listed seems a little shabby as far as specs. Only 256 MB of VRAM can only take you so far, and you don't get Thunderbolt (I know, not a deal breaker, but it is a versatile port). If you can, I honestly say if you can, wait. If Apple releases a new MBP in the near future, you'd probably see prices go down a bit on 2011 MBPs, and, of course, get better specs.
But that's just my 2 cents, and I'm not sure what you're doing with it...
