Hey guys, I'm new to the forum (and just switched over from a PC to a Mac) and would love to get your advice. I'm thinking of picking up one of the MacBook Pros available on the Apple Refurbished Mac store: http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APP...browse&mco=MTIzMjc&node=home/specialdeals/mac and was wondering which one would be best for my needs. I travel a lot for work and would prefer a smaller sized computer (15 inch?) I don't do any development so I don't need a powerhouse. As for the refurbished Mac store...I noticed that there are quite a few models available so I'm having difficulty picking one out. This is the spec I'm leaning towards... Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 15.4-inch glossy widescreen display 2GB memory 120GB hard drive 6x SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB of GDDR3 memory Built-in iSight camera A couple of questions: - Is there a noticeable improvement in performance from 2.33GHz to 2.4GHz? - I'm not planning on burning a lot of media so the superdrive isn't much of an issue. But, I was wondering if people had thoughts about the 6X Superdrive vs the 8X? - Do you guys recommend a different spec on the refurbished mac store? - I saw that the new MacBooks have multi touch and 802.11n support. Is this worth getting the newer models? I'm all about getting a good deal but don't want to sacrifice performance. Oh, and I don't really care for Bootcamp so that's not a factor... Thanks guys!
