So I've finally decided to cross over from PC world to the mac world. I am looking to buy a new laptop, but am having trouble deciding to buy the new macbook pro or the old macbook pro (both in new condition)? I don't do much photo editing/video editing, but do some basic stuff from time to time and would like to get a MBP rather than a MB just because it's a more powerful laptop. I've looked at the specs between the two machines, but am having trouble deciding which one to get. One one hand, I could get a decent old MBP for like $1400 or get a new MBP for $1899 (student discounts). Which machine am I better off with? I'm looking at performance and is the extra $500 worth for the new version of the MBP?
