    ok guys
    Look at these 2 websites and please help me clear some things, so i can get it at the end :)
    http://store.apple.com/au/product/FC026X/A?mco=MjE0NDk5Mw#overview
    http://store.apple.com/au/product/FB471X/A?mco=MjE0NDk5Mw

    so the faster one i actually cheaper than the slower one?
    and the faster one has already have its battery "non-removable"ed?
    hence it has SD card slot?
    and is it the high end of 15.4" of macbook bro? which has NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512MB?

    any comments would be appreciated, any1 who bought this before me will not :)

    That's weird. Yeah, get the cheaper one, that one is clearly the better value.

    The pages tells you what kinda of graphics chip is inside the MBPs (they are both the 9400+9600M).

    Finally, have a look at 'Whats in the box' for both of those lists. What's missing from one of them?

    I'm a little confused myself.

    If you have a look at http://support.apple.com/specs/, you'll see that the current generation 2.6 MBP doesn't have 512 MB of graphics memory, and that your link says it has 512 which is only available on the 2.8 version.

    Must be some typo.

    Just give the good folks at Apple Online a call.

    ...if you look at the pics, both show the express card slot so they look to be the prev gen models...

    Both are refurb previous gen. The processor speeds did not change for those models when the new ones came out.

    Could simply be a BTO option.

    I bought a 15" 2.93 MBP from the Refurb store. A 2.93 processor was a custom option on that model.
