    Over at Macofalltrades.com there is a Macbook Pro, 1.83 Core Duo, 1.5gb RAM, 160gb hd, matte screen, ati x1600, etc. for $1599. is it a good deal? I was leaning toward the Macbook for 1099, but was going to upgrade the hard drive and RAM anyway.

    That's a nice deal, but I've heard some sketchy stuff about macofalltrades in regards to quality of their products. I think you should ask others opinion of the website first

    Make sure to ask if anyone else has dealed there. If you get the macbook, get the ram first, it'll make it run fast.

    RAM first, then HD. i don't know how easy it is to replace a MB HD but i know it's easy to replace MB RAM. maybe you should let Apple upgrade the HD for you and do the RAM yourself.

    It's not too hard to replace the hard drive. Much easier than in the Macbook Pro.

    Macofalltrades is unreliable...
    My experience with them involves sending an email to their Tech Support about an iBook. This was before I bought it so they should have been cordial and interested in maiing te sale. Their response was unhelpful, so I decided against purchasing. Then, someone told me about them selling a G4 with the swing door taped shut with ugly stickers that said: "Warranty void if removed."
