    I plan on getting a MBP. However, theres a few things I am curious about.

    First off, how much of a difference is there between the graphics card with 256 mb vs 512 mb?

    Also, if I were to buy a refurb, would I be getting the new pennryn processors or a different old type?

    I am pretty sure I would like to go for a refurb. The prices are unbeatable and you may be lucky enough to get a better hard drive or more ram. Thanks in advance.

    The Processors would be Merom, but there isn't much difference in performance...

    I believe (and somebody correct me here) the first penryns are 2.6s, which are not yet in the refurb store.
