    Okay, I found a great deal through my school on the last round of Macbook Pros: I want to make sure it's worth it before I close the deal. Here's what I've got for about $1500:

    For comparison's sake, here's what I would get otherwise:

    It really seems like the only things I'd be giving up are the aluminum body and the glass trackpad. They're cool, but $600 cool?

    go for it

    I would definitely take it. Unless you have very specific needs then the pad and unibody are just fluff. :apple:

    Broadly speaking, I agree. Actually, the unibody is not quite fluff, it's a beautifully made machine, a lovely fusion of form and function, but, but, but...if money matters, then a saving of $600 is not to be sneezed at. So, go for it. I'd also recommend that you invest - sometime over the coming year before the one year Apple warranty expires - in Applecare.

    Cheers and good luck
