    I was just about to order a 2.4 Refurb today but I'm glad I waited. Anyone spy a good deal on a 2.53 Macbook Pro?

    I'm also wondering if the processor bump now justifies the price between the base 15 and mid 15?

    Wish they had bumped the 2.4 to anything with more L2 Cache 4 or 6 MB...
    Anyway yes, I'm looking/waiting for a 2.53 deal as well! :D

    Keeping my eye on Amazon and MacMall. Hopefully we'll see ~$2099 2.5 models.

    Should we expect a price drop on the 2.53 refurbished MBP's in the Apple store?

    Refurbs have tax. MacMall and Amazon do not, and product is new.

    a great macbook/macbookpro/any and all macs price tracker is

    macbookcentral.com

    they have a HUGE list of the reputable retailers and their promotions (if any) and which states taxes apply.

    I unfortunately am taxed by macmall, pcmall, and a lot of those places, so the tax really kills those great deals for me.

    I had a pre-unibody 2.5GHz 800MHz FSB 2-gig ram matte screen that I got for like $1600 from amazon. It's not a unibody, but it was pretty fast for the 2 days I had it...
