This is part of my dilema.majorp said:There are other points though, from the edu store you get 3 years warranty as standard. And from the edu store it would be the 2ghz model vs 1.87ghz from the refurb.
I'd get the new one. It's likely that you'll need Applecare at least once in three years.majorp said:This is part of my dilema.
£260 for 0.13Ghz, 3 year warranty?
It's actually more like a tenner a month as you already get the 12 months on any new or refurb. ie. the extended is for 24 months.Zimmy said:ooooohhh big dilema, spending that much cash i would pay the bit extra and get the 3years warranty. works out 7.22 a month which is worth it considering how much a part replacment would cost.
yeah, your probably right. but i don't want to fork out full price when a refresh is within the month. i guess more waiting is in order.emotion said:I'd get the new one. It's likely that you'll need Applecare at least once in three years.
Also the MBPs are getting revised all the time (new logic boards). If I was going to stump up a grand then I'd want the latest revision.

A good bargain, once we had wiped all the fingerprints off and re-installed the OS it was as good as new. The battery was still unused and it came with all the packaging and accessories.
We declined the offer of the anti-virus software......
They had a 15" PowerBook next to it, priced at £999.crap freakboy said:Typical PC World offer, they don't know their ar***oles from their elbows in there. Same goes for Dixons, Comet etc etc. A Salesman show know 'something' about what they are selling.
