    Hey guys,

    So after all those questions and researches, I finally ordered my 2011 15" Macbook Pro.

    I just wanted to thank you all for clearing up my questions and answering them patiently.

    Here's my new baby, http://store.apple.com/us/product/FD318LL/A

    - Apple's stellar track record with refurbished MBP's
    - Killer Low Price

    Reading threads like t his makes it harder and harder not to click that refurb button.

    Been eyeing a 15" with Hi-Res screen for months now. Waiting to see if the price will drop some more. Only, thing, I don't want AAPL to run out of refurb units!

    Gratz!

    It will easily last you 3-4 years , unless you keep dropping it or it has an accident with a cup of coffee or something. I have a late 2008 model and it's as good as the day I bought it. Also still use a 2006 model at work, it still works well; all I've ever had to do was replace the battery once (2 year old battery still gives 3 hours of charge) and upgrade the ram...

    Great machine. You're very financially conscious by not biting on retina.

    Just spend another 300USD and put a SSD 128GB inside.
    Install Lion and put a Optibay with 1TB HDD.

    This will surely change your life.
    As I see the specs, it has 5400rpm drive.
    The tops those drives can to is 30mbps read and write.

    Just add a crucial M4... Trust me this WILL change your life.
    200mbps write and 500 mbps read.
    Its astonishing.

    if that's the one you want I don't think they'll drop prices much lower anytime soon ay man, I say go for it. Wait for your perfect config to hit the store and get it

    Catch a sale and you can get a Crucial M4 256GB for ~$200. I agree on the performance, other than the move from single to dual core nothing else has come close in the single handed change in performance.

    I just bought the same model for slightly more, but new, not refurb.

    Great machine. I just put 16G of RAM in it. Next stop, copying the slow drive over to a Crucial M4 SSD.

    Yep, great buy. I will be going the refurb route on my next mbp. Ordered new last August and it was way more than what you paid.
