    If that's $1500 (US) then that's a horrible price.

    Just get a 2.4Ghz Macbook.

    Sure, it won't be a 15/17" Screen, but you know, it'll be brand new, and stuff.

    Im 90% Sure that a 2.4 Unibody Macbook will do the same job as that macbook pro, sure it has the 17" screen but everything else it got is worse than the 2.4 uMB.

    I say, but 2.4 uMB and external screen instead.

    unless you're doing 3d, you don't need a MBP. A MB will handle those tasks easily.

    I actually have never considered any Macbook, I was always thinking about Macbook Pro. I also hate of being closed in a room for work, so often I go to Starbucks, Nero or such places to work. that's why I want 17'' actually. even if I pay money for external big monitor, I know I will not use it unless I take it to Starbucks :D

    wish I wasn't after 17'', than your MB advice sounds very sensible actually... especially when I think about my financial difficulties...
