Please note: This is Canadian prices. It's time to replace the old blackbook. I bought it refurbed from Apple. Looking to get a 15" for everyday use and work purposes. Using typical web browsing, e-mail, photoshop, office (excel, powerpoint, word)/iwork, multimedia, etc...nothing to extensive. I'm looking for the best value/good buy. Should I go for a refurb model? Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.53GHz Intel Core i5 Originally released April 2010 15.4-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display (1440 x 900 pixel) 4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM 500GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm 8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR3 memory $1489 or 2011 Base 15" $1749 w/ education discount or 2011 High-end 15" $2049 w/ education discount I also would prefer the anti-glare which would be additional $135 for the 2011 models. I just can't see paying that much for a laptop, especially for my uses even though it would be nice. A part of me thinks I should pay more up front so it "lasts" longer. The refurb 15" - is this suitable enough for me? is it still a superior machine for the next few years? How is the graphics card on it? Also I would really like the anti-glare, what price point would it be at if I see in the refurb section? Thanks!
