    I am new to MAC, So I am wondering which Refurb I should get. I will be using Aperture for now. It will be used only for Photography and of course the internet. Thanks, Mike

    Any MBP will be fine for you. I'd take one with 4GB of RAM if you're not willing to upgrade it yourself later on

    It comes down to screen size, and perhaps the decision between the SD-specific card slot and the olde express card slot. If you're doing work in the field, the 13" is nice for portability, if you want a more desk-bound (but still occasionally portable) machine and no external monitor, do the 17".

    I'd probably say monitor would be your #1 concern. For photography apps like aperture good ole refurb mac mini would do with 4gb ram upgrade and an external 2tb hdd. I'd say buy the largest monitor you can buy.

    15in. MacPro

    I found a New Old stock 15in Pro that I am going to get. $1499 Can a large mac monitor hook up to the Mac Book ? I will use the Mac book inthe filed to look at the pics and go to the house and hook a LARGE monitor to adjust the pics. If nesscary.

    Define big and old. If it has Mini Display Port, it can be hooked to 30" 2560x1600 monitor but if it's even older and has Mini DVI, it can only use 1920x1200 resolution
