Ok, here the deal. My school has the revision A models of the MB on sale for $949. Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16, 2 GB RAM, 120 GB HDD. If i buy that i will have $500 left out of the $1500 saved up. I can buy a 500 GB time capsule, an iPod and a new stereo for my car to connect to my iPod. On the other hand, if i buy a MBP, i would have to buy a refurbished one from the apple store online. What i need it for: Web Browsing Designing eBay auctions on Garage Sale Making some home movies(very seldom) Browing the internet(youtube etc) Writing essays for school(Word) Managing Finances(Excel or Numbers) So what would you do???
