    My school is selling the new 2009 15' MBP 2.66 MB985LL/A for $1300(retail was $1999), just wonder if it's worth buying, is there really a big performance different btw this and current i5 MBP:confused:

    What are you looking to do with your notebook? graphic design? video editing? photography?

    If College stuff only constitutes web browser, word processing and email then by all means purchase it. A really good price and more than enough if those are what your needs consist of.

    Sounds like a good deal to me. I believe these go for $1,500+ refurbished at the Apple Store. Are you still eligible for the free ipod touch? and free printer?

    If it does come with a free iPod and Printer you could turn around and sell them. You would be able to knock off around $200 with those.

    I'd take the $700 discount. That is an excellent deal on it, and it is plenty for a college student's needs.
