My girlfriend has been wanting a laptop for awhile and really liked the Macbook Air but I convinced her to look at the new Macbooks and the older gen ones. She only liked the new aluminum ones. She'll probably use it for games and surfing mostly with some office work. I will have to put Windows on it for her and she wants to learn Photoshop. Finally just jumped in and bought a refurb old gen Macbook Pro for her (the 2.5 GHz one) for $1500 instead of going with the newer aluminum Macbook. I need some validation on this so I can decide if I need to buy her a different one (guess I'll have to keep this one for myself if that's the case.....heh). It just seemed like this Macbook Pro was a slightly faster model than the new AL Macbook with better integrated graphics. Plus has the matte screen and the FW 800 and 400 ports which I reasoned may add to its resale value down the road when she wants to upgrade. Any thoughts on that?
