    Hiya, I'm thinking of selling my whitebook and getting the old Powerbook "penryn" pretty soon, mostly for aesthetic and vram reasons (64 to 512 is a BIG difference =D). Would it be worth it to wait until fall for the unibody updates, and would this lower the price of the older models, or are they unaffected now that they are out-of-date? Thanks!

    I bought the Classic MBP 2.5GHz 250GB, b/c it was only $1199 and they were jumping of the shelves at that price. I turned around and sold it for $1650 and made an OK profit, then turned around and bought the last one at $1199 w/AppleCare, HP Inkjet printer for $1544 OTD. There are sales out there, but you just have to search a bit for them. I chose the Classic MBP 2.5 b/c of the Matte Screen, and the overall look and feel of it. The price was really nice too...:cool:
