    Was looking on the refurb page of the Apple store, and it had under the clearance section:

    MacBook Pro 17-inch 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (previous generation)
    17-inch widescreen display
    2GB memory
    250GB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 512MB of GDDR3 memory
    Built-in iSight Camera

    And the specs are the same for the 17" on the page for the current models.

    Query: Is this a misprint on the clearance/refurb site, or is it a pretty good sign that Apple's going to update the 17" at Macworld?

    Couldn't decide which would be the better place to post the thread. Why do you ask?

    Oh, let me guess, you're going to say against the rules, right?

    "2. Spam and overposting. Not just being a prolific poster, but posting the same exact post in many different threads..."

    If that's your point, I don't think "two" equals "many".

    The rules say not to make duplicate threads, but your reasoning is valid, at least.

    Just report one of them and ask a moderator to pick the best one. Happy holidays!

    I don't get accused of that much, but I'll take it.

    Thanks for the advice. Merry Christmas Eve!
