So, I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet. I'm looking to upgrade my 2006 BlackBook. Currently I am in school studying Video Production. I have been thinking about my options, the draw of the 17' MBP is very strong, specifically the one I'm looking at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231117163022?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 I'm weighing it against getting a refurb 15" 2012 with 8gb memory and the GT 650: http://store.apple.com/us/product/F...-23ghz-quad-core-intel-i7-with-retina-display Software I will be using: After Effects, Premiere Pro, FCP (maybe, I prefer PP), Photoshop. I would also like to do some light gaming (maybe Diablo III, nothing like Crysis or CoD. What are your thoughts? The used one has Apple Care until March, droping $1300+ on a laptop really makes me want more AC than 3 months, but I am craving a 17" (for now). As a student, which would you want?
