I have: MBP Santa Rosa, 17" Matte screen, Hi-Res model (1900x1200), 2GB RAM etc.. (June 2007?) with 3yr Applecare. (full details in Signature) I'm considering a Refurb: Refurbished iMac 2.8Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo ($1979 Australian) 2GB memory, 320GB hard drive, 8x Superdrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) ATI Radeon HD 2600 with 256MB of GDDR3 Memory etc.. Reason is, now have Macbook in house for portability and MBP never leaves the house so I no longer need the portability of a Laptop (and to be honest a 17" was always a bit too big to be anything more than an occasional mover) I'm considering flogging the MBP w./Applecare on ebay for hopefully $2000-$2500 (Australian) and using the funds to buy the refurb iMac. Deal or no deal? Waste of time or anyone think I'd be better off? I know I'd get a much bigger screen (same res with I think 8-bit panel rather than 6-bit I would have now??) - anything else to consider? Any advice welcomed, have 'the wife' wavering and now is the time to strike if it's to be!
