Now I'm coming to realize that the new MBP's only offer about a 3% increase in actual processing performance over the previous generation and are barely noticable for the LED-backlight differences, I notice that on the Refurbished store I can get the previous $2499 MBP for $1999, which otherwise has all the benefits of the newer MBP's (2GB RAM), but also has a 256MB ATI graphics card, vs. the 128MB Nvidia graphics card on the $1999 current MBP. Sooooo, which would actually be the better deal here? I'm not *much* of a gamer, though I may put boot camp on there and play Flight Simulator 2004 or Flight Simulator X, but I would like to run a 23" external monitor on it. Possibly but less likely a 30" only if I decide to go crazy when I order. Are there other subtle benefits to the new SR MBP's that I'm missing? Edit: I should also add that I'm planning on getting a WD Scorpio 250GB 5400RPM drive to the system and have it installed by a certified technician, regardless of the system.
