I noticed my good intentions on a MBP. I would love a MBP with at least 250GB HD space, and it would be a plus to get a 512mb graphics card on a middle base model refurb and .1GHZ upgrade than the 1st MBP new base model and have to upgrade to a 250GB. I would be using my EDU discount if I spent money on the new 1st base model. How much do you think a middle base model refurb MBP might cost in the future? And is there a possibility of an EDU discount on the refurbs? Thanks.
