I have a refurb MBP on its way for 999. Decent deal I believe but I worry every time I look at the product cycle/when to buy reference and I see that bold red "Do Not Buy!" I kept trying to hold out and see when they were going to update but it just wasn't happening. My PC laptop/Vista Monster is hanging on ever so slowly and I really long to move over to Mac. It's not like I need the latest, greatest, most powerful but hope I'm not paying too much for less product.
