I had planned to purchase my mother a MacBook Pro for Christmas, the 2.53 GHZ 13" model. However, when Amazon had black Friday sale on the 2.26 model for only $1049, I couldn't pass on it. I mean $1049, with free shipping, etc. quite a bit savings along with other benefits of amazon. However, I started thinking about the way Apple has this machine put together with only 2 GB of memory and a measly 160 GB hard drive. Actually, for my mother, that machine would still be plenty good enough, and I could swap hard drives and memory, for about half the price difference between models. Nevertheless, the 2.26 seems on the low end these days. Should I consider returning it, or you guys think this model is still a great choice especially at this price? I guess I just normally try to not to get the very base model. Thanks for any advice.
