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
Very Nice Work On Your Part!

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

Years of enjoyment ahead...

Cheers :)

It cost that much? Let alone refurbished :eek:
Someone is woefully out of touch...

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!

And thank you so much for all your best wishes. I hope it will last for at least 3-4 years:)
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...

Mine arrived THE DAY AFTER I ordered it! Even tho it said june 20th as a pick up date lol. No regrets on the computer and size. It was 'just' what I was looking for. And of course thanks to my macrumors friends for makin everything more clear for me:)

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.
