    thats a pretty good deal, and you could also buy apple care and extend the warranty.
    you're saving around $400 or so.

    For $2K, sounds pretty good. It's a pretty nice spec too, and you can obviously upgrade almost everything but the CPU (you can probably do that too with some skills)

    I'd do it if I were in your shoes.

    It's the current model? Yeah, you can add a second one. Heck, you can even swap for dual 3.2s.

    A refurbished single quad core costs the same from Apple. So you're getting 4GB of memory, 500GB (over stock 320GB), 8800GT and the airport extra. Buy yourself some Applecare via eBay and you're all set.
