    Isn't it only 50-100 on mbpros and 50 on low end mb? The mid-range mb just adds ram and bigger hd for 150 over old 899 price. Along this line, just how much more is the mb c2d worth than the cd? Is the pre-n that important? Is the c2d much cooler? Anything else? I assume all other early mb issues were resolved by the end of its run.

    I don't know, is it? If apple could get more, they wouldn't have lowered the price.

    IMO the refurb MBPs are quite good deals. The c2d version does not really add all that much for the average user.

    4000th post!!

    I saw $1349 for the 15.4 inch 2.0 GHz machines. That's cheaper than my 1.33 GHz G4 15.2 inch PowerBook that I bought two years ago for $1499.

    I think I'll go write a rant about it. ;)
