    wait. you sold your macbook and now you're considering buying a macbook? i don't get it?

    the macbook hasn't been updated, only the macbook pro. so if you meant you don't know whether to buy the macbook pro NOW or the macbook once it gets updated, then that makes more sense.

    personally, i'd probably just get a macbook pro if money isn't an issue. now that there's more of a gap between the lines, the extra money isn't such a waste. plus, who knows when the macbook will be updated. if they've waited this long and only updated the pro, then it's likely the macbook won't see merom at all until january.. perhaps not even until spring.

    I think he was saying refurbed 15" MBP or new C2D MBP. he just left off the Pro. Really though I think it is up to you. For your needs I would get the refurb. You won't notice the performance for your uses. However, if you want the latest and greatest, and $$ isn't an issue, splurge.

    It's like like a blast of light you know, and it only happens in the dark. Arguably the MBP keyboard is less legible in normal light / marginal light when the backlight isn't having the full effect.

    Well, if money isn't an issue, might as well go for the latest and greatest Core 2 Duo 15" MBP.

    But if I were you, I'd keep the extra money and buy a refurb 15" MBP since you're not doing anything too hardcore with your computer!
