Hi, In the next two weeks or so (around the beginning of October 2012) I will be getting my first Macbook Pro (15" - non retina). 1) I am going to by refurb and looking at the store now, the Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel i7 at around $1500 suits my needs. It was released June 2012. I am in no rush to get this machine, but I'd like to pull the trigger in the next few weeks. The buyers guide says it's neutral. Is now a good time to buy the 15" MBP listed above? It's power is more than enough for what I need to do (light CS6 with small files). 2) My current laptop is an HP that has a fantastic docking station and I cannot seem to find a dock that people generally like for the MBP. The dock I have charges the laptop, and I like that I don't have to connect and disconnect the peripherals directly to the machine every time. Is there a high-quality dock I can get for the MBP? What do the graphics/video professionals out there do? 3) In terms of the dock, I also have a 21" external monitor (DVI or VGA - no display port). How do I go about connecting this laptop to this machine? Is a display port to DVI (or VGA) the best way to go? 4) I see that the machine comes with 2x2GB of RAM. How difficult is it to replace RAM in this machine, and it is best to pop in an 8GB module for a total of 10GB, or is it more stable at 2x8GB for 16GB total? Thank you very much in advance for your advice!
