Hi A local store is having a clearance of their ex-display model last generation MBPs and I am temped by the 2.66ghz 15.4 inch with the 9600GT for 100,000 yen (about 780 pounds) and the 2.8ghz 15.4inch for 130,000 yen (about 920 pounds). My dilemma is that I will be moving home from Japan to the UK soon and if I buy a new mac there I will be paying quite a bit more for it. I would be able to take the laptop back to the UK from Japan with me and probably use it until I get a job/flat at which point I will probably get an i7 iMac. Just wondering if a) these prices are very good compared to what is available in the UK and b) if there is much risk buying a 4-6 month old ex-display model that has been plugged into the mains all day every day. I asked and the staff said that the batteries were all fine and that the laptops came with a full 1 year apple warranty, and my experience with the ex-dispay iMac that I have had for the last 4 years has been really smooth but I worry mostly about the fact that laptops seem a ot more fragile than desktops.
