    We have no idea. Questions you should ask/answer for yourself:

    1) How much money do I have? Can I afford the newer model?

    2) How often will I be using my computer away from power?

    Amended 2): How often and for how long will I be using my computer away from power?

    IMHO, most people don't truly need the newer battery, but it is nice. Unless you know you'll be using yours for extended periods away from an outlet, you should be fine with the 2.4 refurb. And it truly is a great bargain.
