    Alright guys, As some of yall realize from my nickname, I asked so many questions here and made up my mind on a refurbished 2011 15" MBP

    What do you think of this deal? Should I go for it?

    I was going to go with 2012 high end 13" but over %80 of the people recommended a 15" over 13" since I'll be using autocad and stuff.

    Thanks!

    That is really a good deal. I would get it. You get allot for the price performance.

    I think it also includes 1 year warranty, which might not be the case if you buy used.

    If you are going to run your productivity applications exclusively or mostly on the notebook display, I would get the high-res option (1680x1050) to best utilize the screen real-estate. You'll feel pretty cramped with the standard res.

    However, if you are going to primarily use an external monitor, the standard resolution, or even the 13" would work fine.

    if you compare this mbp refurbished with a new 13 maxed out, the refurbished is much better!

    the 13 is better only in portability! ;)
