    I've waited for refresh like many, but now refurb. looks like a good price. Between these two models is almost 500. difference. Should I same these money and get refurb or get new one? I'll be honest 1499. sound a lot better for my wallet :)

    Since you're asking, I'm guessing the i5 won't make any difference to you. Get the refurb.

    Unless you really need the i5, go for the refurb.

    I don't really need i5, but I'll be holding on to this laptop for 3 years or so... Will it still be desent machine in couple of years?

    Yes. CPU speed won't really matter as current C2Ds are fine for average user for years

    Get the refurb unless you need the higher resolution screen option they added on the 15"

    Updates were weak
