A co-worker just bought the 2.53 GHz MBP last weekend...he was aware there was a good chance of upgrade but it didn't matter too much b/c he doesn't need it for anything other than browsing, word processing and photo editing. What I'm wondering is if it would be worthwhile to return the machine, pay the 10% restocking fee ($150) and then buy the current gen 2.4GHz machine for $1199. Once taxes are included for buying the new machine he would save about $100...right? I'm wondering if there's any reason to not suggest this to him. P.S. He might just decide to keep what he has and not deal with any of the hassle...and I would fully support that decision given that what he has is more than capable of doing what he needs it to do. However, money is tight around here and $100 is $100.
