    im about to get a new macbook pro either refurbished or the new ones with c2d but im wondering is there a huge difference in performance on them , i´ll be doing video editing and picture editing for myself and not as a job , then ill be using it for internet browsing and nothing else

    do u think is worth it the c2d ?

    if i get refurbished i would be getting a 15¨macbook pro
    2.16GHz Intel Core Duo
    15.4-inch glossy widescreen display (1440x900 resolution)
    1GB (single SODIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    100GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard drive
    Slot-load SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB GDDR3 memory
    Built-in iSight Camera
    Front Row and Apple Remote


    how does the 1 year warranty works for refurbished machines?

    the refurbished machine cost arround 1599 with one year warranty over 2000 of the c2d with only 3 months warranty

    Blasphemer!


    On topic, search the boards here - there's a ton of threads already on this.

    More or less it comes down to whether you want the most performance you possibly can, and that little extra edge down the road when some more apps are 64-bit 'optimized'

    If you're worried more about the money, the Core 1 Duo MacBooks are still blazingly fast and powerful.

    your purchase should reflect what you will use the computer for

    Sounds like you'll be more than fine with a refurb MBP Core 1 Duo

    The same as it does for regular machines. You can also add AppleCare and bring it up to 3 years.

    The C2D MBP also has a 1 year warranty. The 3 months number is for phone support. The warranty is the same for the refurbs and the new models.
