    I'm thinking about getting a Refurb 2.2 MBP because all i need it for is MS Office and I'life no real pro stuff, Im only getting it for the bigger screen :) so i was wondering if people could post thier geekbench scores from their 2.2 MBP and the 2.4 MBP so I could gauge the diff...its hard to tell from their site...opinions are also welcome!

    get the 2.2 model

    negligible difference between 2.2 and 2.4 in CPU.

    more vram is only needed when running heavy video editing and high-resolution game texture processing.

    The 2.2 model will be more than enough for your needs (I know, I have one!)

    I would recommend - if funds permit - that you consider upgrading the Ram to 4GB though; you can do this cheaply now (£60 UK or under $100 US) and the additional Ram is well worth it - better than the "jump" from 2.2 to 2.4 (which, in the 'real world' you'd probably not notice!)
