Ok, here's the deal: I have 1800 dollars to spend. I can either get a refurb macbook pro with the following stats: 2.16 intel core duo 256 x1600 1gb ram 100g hd superdrive for a total of 1690, which would allow me to buy parallels right away. or i can use my disount for apple developers to get the base intel core 2 duo with the following stats: 2.16 intel core 2 duo 120g HD 1gb RAM 128mb vid card sweeter superdrive for a total of 1795 including taxes, etc... and no parallels till christmas. The top option has a better video card and is 115 cheaper, whereas the bottom option has the new chip, a bigger HD (i could get an external in the future if space was an option), and a "better" superdrive. Which one should i go with? Are there anymore better options? How much faster is the C2D going to be with 2.16 for each processor? Thanks, any input is appreciated.
