    Thinking about picking up a 15" i7 2.66 (2010) with Hi Res Anti-glare screen for $1,500. The rest of the configuration is stock and it still has some apple care left. Think I could do better?

    I think $1,500 is a great deal for that config. Good luck. :)

    I see your point & I agree, but unfortunately, BestBuy do not offer the MBPs (customized) with anti-glare screens. :(

    There is a big difference in performance between the 10's and the 11's but there is also a big difference in price. For some people the screen size matters more than performance. FYI, the new 13" has performance very close to that 17" if that helps you rationalize the performance any.

    Get a 2011; you can get one with the hi res screen for about $1,700-1,800 if you are a student/civil servant/military/etc, and slightly under $2,000 if not. The base 2.0GHz CPU runs circles around the 2.66 dual core i7.
