I was planning on getting a macbook pro for christmas with money I have and money my parents are giving me for christmas and lending me the rest.. and that comes to around £1,600. I don't need a notebook but it would be a benifit. But I just checked out the refurbs and saw a MacPro (Two 2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon "Woodcrest" processors 1GB memory (667MHz DDR2 fully-buffered DIMM ECC) NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics with 256MB memory 250GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive1) Leaving me like £200 on a screen (And yeah I know it would be like 15" but I wouldn't care because its a flipping MacPro!) A MacPro would be.. WOW!! but I wouldn't feel solid with it because I would only be able to get a small screen. But on the other hand theres the Macbook Pro, a speedy nice laptop just been updated no need to worry about screens or whatever. Honestly What would YOU do if you had a top budget of £1,600 (No education discount..)?
