Hi all, I'm looking to get a relatively new Macbook Pro, and I'd like to get some feedback on my options. Combine the rMBP display problems people are reporting with the fact that I don't _really_ _really_ need a rMBP, I'm planning on a cMBP. The main things I'd like are: * A solid state drive 256gb or greater * The ability to install an SATA hard drive (say 750gb) * The ability to upgrade the RAM to 8 or 16gb So, my question is, what do I lose by purchasing a refurbished unit? Right now I'm looking at a new cMBP: 2.6GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz 15-inch Hi-Res Glossy Widescreen Display (or antiglare?) 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm $2299 I'd get a kit from OtherWorldComputing to put in a 240gb solid state drive as the main drive, and use the 750gb SATA drive as a storage drive in the optical bay. If I were to go the refurbished route, I'd try something like this: 2.7GHz Quad-core Intel i7 Originally released June 2012 15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Hi-Res antiglare widescreen display, 1680-by-1050 resolution 8GB (2 x 4GB) of 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM 1TB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm 8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory versus a new 15-inch? For the refurb I'd also get an OWC kit to install the 240gb solid state drive and move the 1tb SATA drive to the optical bay. Any thoughts? Thanks.
