    Hello, so I need some help in figuring out which computer to get. It is between a brand new 15 inch MBP or a refurb one from early 2011.

    Here's the specs for the refurb one:


    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.2GHz quad-core Intel i7
    Originally released February 2011
    15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Hi-Res antiglare widescreen display, 1680-by-1050 resolution
    4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    750GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
    8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 and AMD Radeon HD 6750M


    And the new one:

    15-inch: 2.4 GHz
    2.4GHz quad-core
    Intel Core i7
    4GB 1333MHz
    750GB 5400-rpm1
    Intel HD Graphics 3000
    AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB GDDR5
    Built-in battery (7 hours)

    I am not a "hardcore" user. Gaming wise i will probably be playing GTA San Andreas on it and so on. However I leave a lot of tabs open and programs running on a constant basis.


    I appreciate your input! :)

    If they both have antiglare screen get a new one if you want the black "Frame get the new one,as the antiglare has a sliver "frame" surrounding the screen like my MBP,I myself usually go for new but again im an OCD germophobe haha:apple:
