    Ok Im stuck between the refurbished MBP 2.4 or 2.5.

    Its $150 more to go to the 2.5 and larger hard drive/more video ram. Is it worth that price? Ive looked at the other threads on here and they said its not worth $500 but being as this is refurb it isnt quite so much. Id like to be able to keep it for 4-5yrs if i can. Ill only be doing normal things (web, documents, some sound editing i think). So should i spend the $150? thank

    I doubt your workflow will be affected by the higher-speced model, and I also doubt that it will make any difference in five years. I would save the $100 and put it in the bank, or under the mattress.

    Over there------->
    Agreed. You won't even notice that difference unless you're waiting impatiently for something to render and every second counts. You will however notice the difference in your bank account balance.
