First I apologize since I posted something a bit similar a few days ago in the buying advice forum but I never got my question answered. I'm eyeing a new macbook aluminum. Still not sure if I want the 2.0 or 2.4. Here is what my dilemma comes down to. My biggest concern is $$$$ I'm a grad student which means I don't have a lot of it. Frankly I don't even really need a macbook. I have all the computing power I really need. I have been waiting for the refresh, not for the faster speed, (.13 ghz, HA!) but for a potential drop in prices. However, now that the whitebook has been updated, I don't see any price drops on the old ones from the macstore. That is to say, they aren't for sale new on the clearance section so that I would get a free ipod and on the refurbished end there is the same discount you would expect from the 2.13 refurbished. So it comes down to this. Am I waiting for nothing? Even if I wait for the 2.13/2.53 upgrade, how long until these are available refurbished? My biggest concern is $$$$ and NOT getting one of the old screens. To me, they look terrible. Please help me!
