I'm not the creative type, I studied psychology at university, I love listening to music, web browsing and writing up epic amount of documents. The MBP is nice, I have a 2010 model (I originally bought a 2011 but returned it because I enjoy my lap not melting). Am I the only one who would love to own a macbook and not a macbook pro. I would buy one tomorrow if they were still for sale PS Yes I am considering refurbished as they have core 2 duo same as my 2.4ghz core 2 duo in my mbp which is sufficient for my needs. And I prefer the discrete graphics.
