    I just received this refurbished mbp model from ups today. G0M1DLL I paid 1650.
    I could get this open box one MD035LL/A for 1560.
    The differences are 2.2 6mb vs 2.3 8mb and 500gb 7200rpm vs 750gb 5400rpm.
    Should I keep or should a return and get the second one?

    Would your computational needs profit from the 100 MHz increase and the bigger, but slightly slower HDD?

    I mostly record guitar, code a little, and I would like to start video editing since I just got a gopro camera.

    Then the machine currently in your possession will fit your needs quite well.

    I agree - stick with the one you already have
