Hey - I have been going back and forth between the idea of getting a macbook or an iMac... I was recently set on getting an iMac until I saw my cello teacher's new macbook, and it is gorgeous!! I can't spend over $1100 on a computer (that's my price after edu. discount) and I was wondering if there was any likelihood of a price drop on the macbooks with the release of merom... I would really like a dvd burner and a bigger hard drive... thank you! ::edit:: I just realized that refurb. core duo macbooks (2.0GHZ, Superdrive) are 1100, so this is an option too - will the price on refurbished core duo macbooks go down with the release of C2D?
