I am looking at the Refurbished MacBook Pro, 15-inch, 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo for 1599 or a new MBP core 2 duo 2.16ghz for 1799 after student discount. Now the main difference other than processor is the core duo has 256ram on the video card and the core 2 duo only has 128. Is it worth the extra 200 to get the core 2 duo or will the refurb be a better deal all around? Thanks a million I need to order the refurb by tomorrow night in order to have it in time before I head off to tokyo. PS: The 1599 only has a 100 gig hard drive but unlike the c2d it can be upgraded easily.
