okay.. well I just want some opinions on what you would do choice #1 is a refurbished 15" antiglare from apple.com for $1593 after tax (free shipping). specs are: * 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo * 4GB (2x2GB) RAM * 250GB 5400rpm Hard Drive * SuperDrive * nVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256MB Graphics * 15.4" Antiglare Widescreen LED Backlit Display * Secure Digital (SD) Card Slot * Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 5.5 lb choice #2 is a brand new 15" antiglare from bhphotovideo.com for $1748 (same specs as above + no tax + free shipping + free parallels desktop 5.0) I'm leaning towards the new one because well, it's new and it has parallels 5.0 included for free. so when you figure in the price of parallels (about $70), I'm only paying about $75 more for the new one. Is parallels desktop worth having? I plan on using bootcamp to run windows, so does this software just allow me to run windows and osx side by side? for those that have used it, does it work well?
