    Last year I bought the base model macbook pro the day it came out. I would now like to buy an external display and mouse keyboard combo. I can get a 23" ACD 2nd hand plus brand new apple mouse and keyboard for AU$950 or I can get the new 24" apple display brand new and apple mouse and keyboard new for AU$1450. Do you think its worth the extra $500 for the new display?

    Ah, unibody, not first Penryn. Gotcha.

    It's worth it if you think it's worth it. It's worth it if you like glossy. It's worth it if you want a newer H-IPS.

    well I was also thinking about resale value as well, because I finish school at the end of this year and If I end up going traveling I would most likely sell it.
