Hey guys! First post here. I'm looking into buying a MB, making the jump from desktop PC to macbook! I'm in a bit of a predicament, though. I am stuck between two models: a refurbished 2.4 GHz MB with 2GB DDR3 memory and a 128GB SSD for about $1580.00 CAD, total. OR the top-end current gen of MBP, with the student pricing. roughly $1870.00 CAD total, including the free iPod touch (which I do not have!) So, my question is, which one would you recommend getting? Is the 2GB difference in RAM that big, considering the SSD drive? Also, would I be able to notice any difference in the CPU power? Other than that, the specs seem very similar (i.e., same GPU, etc.) Oh, I almost forgot: would i be kicking myself for getting a refurb. 'older' MB model, or is there really that much of a difference between the newer models and the 'older' ones, such as battery life? Thanks for any help! EDIT: Title says 2.4 GHz MBP, which is wrong, it's a MB.
