Im buying my first Macbook pro, Im going to go for the 17 inch. I stand before the option of getting a used early 2009 model or going for the current 2010 model at a greater price ofcoarse. I know the specs in general are better with the newer model, but what else is there....battery life alot better? - I also read issues about graphic driver problems when running windows? Is that happening on both models? Anyway, any info would be useful - I think both computers will do the job fine....just dont want to get any nasty surprise after my purchase.. Is it worth the extra buck?
