    Look at the price in amazon, the old top of the line MBP is 1599, thats 900USD lower than originally.
    I can get that or the new UNI MBP for 1868
    What do you think?

    i was in a similar situation but decided that the fact i can get the 2.5 old MBP and applecare for less than the price of the new one (plus that glossy screen is horid imo)

    ok it hasnt got ddr3 ram and the fancy track pad, but theese where not issues for me

    Other than to save a few bucks I see no reason to get the older version

    But, you get a faster FSB, faster RAM, a revamped trackpad, a new, sturdier aluminum enclosure, and a newer machine.
