Hi everyone, I am currently in the process of buying a macbook pro. Fortunately, my dad lives in Hong Kong can get me one tax free and bring it over. I currently have a macbook which I love but it just isn't cutting it for me. I need something a lot more powerful, hence the move to a macbook pro. I have 2 options: 1) I could get the new 15" 2.2ghz all standard except for the hi-res antiglare screen which is £1150. This would be new from the apple store. 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM 2x2GB 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display 2) or, on the apple refurbished store, I have found an early 2011 17" 2.2ghz macbook pro which is all standard spec. It is £1230. 17-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Hi-Res glossy widescreen display, 1920-by-1200 resolution 4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM 750GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm 8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Intel HD Graphics 3000 and AMD Radeon HD 6750M So comparing them, the processors are the same, the 17" has 250gb more memory, they have the same graphics cards, same amount of ram, both have high res screens, and then the 15" has anti-glare. But I could live without antiglare. Is the extra £80 justifiable for a larger screen and hard drive? Also, has anyone bought a refurbished macbook pro before? what was the condition like? I'm a bit nervous about buying one. Thank you for your time.
