    I need some advice on buying a 2.4ghz Unibody Macbook. This will by my first mac. I can buy it new for $1399+tax where I work. So my question is will waiting 3 more weeks till WWDC make that much of a difference in my mac computing experience for the next 2-3 years if there happens to be a spec upgrade in June. A $100 price drop or an ipod with the back to school promotion alone isn't worth the wait for me, since i've been without a laptop for a while and just want to get back into the swing of things and especially on my first mac. The aforementioned price is a spring promotion so I'm not sure if it will be around much longer. Thanks for your advice!

    You can get the refurb for $1299 plus tax, so $1399 is not great.

    Highly recommend refurbs.

    I prefer to purchase new.

    That is a great deal. Even better than the education discount. Go for it.

    +1 for the refurbs. If you don't need the free printer, sell it and net an extra $60.
