I am kindda disappointed that the 13" MBP did not see much other than USB/ processor changes. I can get a refurbished 15" oct 2011 MBP (i7 2.2, 4gb) for 1359 from apple or I get the new 13" MBP. I just don't see any value in the 13"- Has no dedicated graphics card, same display as last year. Any thoughts?

I'm in the exact same boat as you. $1359 sounds like a really good deal. My bigger concern though is if it's with waiting a few more days or just go for it.

I am debating on those two as well. A high end 13" seems like a performance monster but at the same time display resolution is a joke.
I feel like I'll go with "newer is better" motto and get the high end 13".

I just ordered a new 2012 13" 2.9ghz I7 MBP and can't wait to get it!

Personally, I think the display is just fine.

I'm looking at same thing! My understanding is 15 inch i7 refurb still outperforms the new 13 MBP i7??????

The only reason I am considering 15 inch is because of the dedicated graphics card.. Still torn..

I believe it is and there doesn't seem to be huge difference between sandy bridge and ivy bridge. The 13" is just more portable.
