I am looking at my first I am going w/ 13 inch 2011 model because my current work laptop took a dump on me and its time for a replacement. I do not want to spend over 1500 on replacement so I have been shopping around. 1st question. I found the feb 2011 model of the 13inch i7 2.7 w/ 500 gig hdd shipped to my door for $1350. I found this at "macmall" is this a good reputable vendor? 2nd question. I found an oct 2011 model refurb 13inch i7 2.8 w/ 750 gig hdd shipped to my door for 1357. This is a refurb model so im worried about scratches and being banged up. Im just wondering if this a better deal then the brand new early model listed above. I dont need the extra 250 gig hdd but it never hurts. W/ only 7 dollars difference in the two its makes it tuff. Just trying to figure out if the 2.8 i7 is that much of an upgrade as I would normal lean towards brand new vs refurb when its this close in price but if the later is just a great deal and I would be stupid not to jump on it I would hope someone would tell me so and why. Anyways thats it guys. More so which would you buy and why?
