My local campus authorized dealer is offering both of these computers with a free iPod Touch. I'm going to sell it to help defray the overall cost of the computer. I intend to own one of the two for 11 months whereupon I will sell it with 1 months remaining on the AppleCare & buy a new one. I want to balance 2 things: value & resale value in 1 year. Here's my math: 2.0GHz MB (White, 2/2009) 2GB memory, 120GB HD, etc.: $849 + 229 + tax (on both) - 229 - 200 (average sale price of iPod Touch on eBay) = $716.38 2.0 GHz uMB (10/2008) 2GB memory, 160GB HD, etc.: $999 + 229 + tax - 229 - 200 = $875.75 Is the uMB $159.37 better value than the 2.0 Wht? In 11 months when I want to resell one, will the gap widen or narrow? These are the questions I'm sorting through. There may be others I have not anticipated but of which you, expert Macrumors contributors, may be aware. I'm a relatively poor grad student replacing my old PowerBook. This is a major purchase for me in a down economy. I want to make the right purchase with the most value. Any help any of you can provide to make the most logical/rational decision would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
