    Hey guys I know there are a ton of these on here and believe me Ive searched and read through a lot of them but I just looking for a little adivce to help with with this decision, thanks.
    So I've narrowed my options down to the new (Summer 2009) entry level 15" MBP (with education discount and back to school promo) or the Late 2008 Refurb 2.4 with HDD.
    Price is only a couple hundred bucks difference and seeing as I alread have an ipod touch and iphone Id be selling the free ipod to recover some of the loss.
    Im a legal college student so my needs are really only web browsing, watching movies, word processing all of which they will both easily handle. Just wondering if the discrete graphics will speed up snow leopard and if the new screens are noticeably improved, any pros/cons between the two.
    Thanks again guys as I know these threads are pretty much a dime a dozen.
