    So I was shopping for a macbook pro the other day and I got the $1349 refurbished and it is already delivered. However, I now see the $1449 refurb with 4Gb RAM and 512MB Graphichs. What should I do?

    Get over it and move on. Computers will always be cheaper and more powerful in the future.

    You can upgrade the RAM from 2GB to 4GB for less than $100. You don't need more RAM unless you have used all the existing RAM.

    256MB of graphics memory won't be any slower than 512MB unless you do some VERY intensive graphics work. (and I don't mean gaming or basic Photoshop)

    Is it worth the 15% restocking fee? Do you really need the 512MB graphics? Do you really need the 4GB RAM?

    The RAM upgrade can be had for about $60 online. Are the other spec bumps worth paying an extra $100 plus tax AND paying the 15% restocking?

    Just keep it, there's nothing wrong with your current computer.

    Break out the world's smallest violin and start playing.

    Agreed. You can upgrade the RAM yourself and you probably won't ever need the extra graphics memory.
