Well I don't want this to be yet another MB vs MBP discussion. It's more mature than that. See the thing was I originally really wanted a SR MBP. But this damned forum put me off it (yellow screens etc) and i really don't want to have to return it 3 times to get a good one. BUT, if you could persuade me otherwise that would help. It would be the low end 15 inch. Another option is the blacbook + applecare. Is applecare worth it? does the black case clean easily? i really like the size of it, but the GMA 950 and 2 Gb Dual channel mode RAM limit wont be so good in say 2 years time. One last option would be a refurb 2.16 Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, but the older graphics card compared to the 8600m GT doesn't excite me! So here are the three options: 15 Inch 2.2 Ghz SR MacBook Pro - £1299 13.3 Inch 2.16 Ghz MacBook (Black) + Applecare - £1,148 15 Inch 2.16 Ghz MacBook Pro (Refurb) - £1,079 What should I go for? and just for laughs and an arguement, Matte or Glossy? XD thanks in advance and sorry for the long post, Benedictus-x EDIT: title should be swinging!
