I've decided to buy my first MBP to try the "Mac experience". I'm going to Cambridge in October to do my master degree so it will be my only computer and probably my only computer when I get back too (albeit with an external display/keyboard/mouse). I don't really have the time to play games, do some photo editing but not really anything else that requires a lot of CPU power. However, I consider myself a "poweruser". I used to study in computer science and want my computer to be as fast as it can be, even if it's only to surf the web, watch some HD movies, etc. Finally, I want to keep this computer for at least 3 or 4 years (my Dell laptop is 5 years old and still works very well, same with my desktop which is even older... but I paid the high price at that time). I want the 15" with high res antiglare screen. I was waiting for the B2S to get the free ipod touch, but I'm tired of waiting and the configuration I want is available since this morning on the Refurb store (in Canada). I can get the 2011/15"/2Ghz/4Go/500Go(5400)/antiglare for 1699$. The same configuration costs 1884$ with the education discount. Considering that I already have an ipod touch, I would sell the free one (if there is a B2S promotion this year) and would end up paying more or less the same price. What do you think? Is it worth the wait and the hassle of selling the ipod on ebay to get a brand new vs a refurb? Also, there is another config available on the refurb store which is interesting: 2011/15"/2.2Ghz/4Go/4go/500go(7200)/antiglare/better GPU for 2039. Is the 2.2Ghz worth 340$ considering that I won't do that much CPU intensive tasks, won't play games but want my computer to be good for a few years? I was thinking of maybe getting the 2Ghz one and upgrading to 8GO ram and Momentous XT with the money instead.
