I have the option of buying a MBP 17" which is the 09 model because AppleCare is scheduled to run out this September. It is the 2.66 C2D with 200GB HDD and 4GB RAM. I believe this is the one with the dual graphics cards with 9400M and another which I can't think of right now? I can buy it for $900. I would just like a regular macbook to take to and from school, nothing crazy will be done on it like video editing and photos. Maybe the occasional game of L4D2.
