    Should I bite the retail bullet and shell 2k plus for a new pro.
    All I want is a stable, smooth, low latency, 15" mac book pro (7200RPM).

    Where is the cheapest net source to buy?

    Should I get a used one with a year plus apple care left for around $1,300?
    Or is that a foolish thing to do?

    If you happen to be reading this right now, there is 20% Bing cashback for BestBuy right now. If you don't know how to use it, n/m but this deal will end any minute now.

    Really good price for buying from B&M retailer compared to anyone else.

    i scored an ebay auction

    a 15 macbook pro 7200RPM with 2 years of apple care left. Thanks to you I binged it and received 132$ back so the unit cost me $1,500 total. It is less than a year old, supposively mint and with a lot of software. To my door with a return policy. The same unit, albiet 5i, is 1000 more at the Apple store.
    Thank you for that bing thing!

    My first Mac. Ive come from a scientific backround for the last 25 year using Micro SOFT.

    Now i am going to record some beautiful songs. At least that's my intention.
    I will look to this forum for Apples that fall away from the tree and into my basket.
    Thanks, I wonder if there's any recording resources you might recomend me going to?

    Congrats on the new purchase! Hope it serves you well. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of music do you record?
