    The old ones are still awesome. Personally, I prefer the look of the old ones to the new, but I guess that's just a personal choice. Sure, performance is better on the new ones, but the old MBP's are powerful little beasts. Now: here's the most important part. A 15 inch, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, a high end machine just hours ago, is available for.... $1350.

    For me, I'm forgetting about the new notebooks. Old MBP's, here I come!

    Yeah, top of the line previous generation MBP can be purchased with student discount at the apple clearance store for around $1500.

    I think I'll wait for the new update to hit the 17" and pick up the previous generation on clearance.

    Nice! I'd pick up a 17 inch, but one, I can't afford it, and 17 inches is just a little bit too big for me.

    You dont have to, but why wouldnt you? Same product, same warranty, much cheaper with better testing and quality control then a new unit. Apple refurbs are top notch.

    Why pay more when you can pay less. That's not burning money; that's stupidity.

    I dunno, I guess for some people a high end one is neccessary. The one he mentioned is more powerful than the refurb.
