    Hi,

    Saw these two MBPs on the Apple store

    1. Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    • 15.4-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display
    • 2GB memory
    • 250GB hard drive
    • 8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    • Built-in iSight camera
    • Illuminated keyboard

    2. Standard MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (New)
    • 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    • 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB
    • 320GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
    • SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    • MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display
    • Backlit Keyboard (British) & User’s Guide (English)

    Is the only difference in these the slightly faster processor, 2GB ram and 70GB HDD? Is there a generation difference between them?

    Price for refurb: £1029
    Price for new: £1499

    Thanks!

    Clearly the difference includes the speed, RAM, and HardDrive. And the other is a newer model.

    The refurb will have the replaceable battery and expresscard slot. The new one will have the longer lasting battery and the SD card slot.
