First post here, but I think I've read every thread from the past 6 months over the past week! I have my credit card in hand and am about to order but need a last push from you helpful people. Basically, I have a 6 months old Acer that has been rubbish from the outset, I only use it for surfing and Football Manager but am sick of blue screens and broken mouse buttons. I really like the look of imovie for making DVDs of the kids camcorder footage and OSX just looks so much better for a novice than Windows has proven to be. Specifally, I'm looking at a refurb 15" MBP with 1gb Ram and 100gb hd for £1100, but since reading all this fuss over C2D I'm concerned I am buying "old" technology and I will see larger depreciation than if I waited a while and got a similar C2D. Is that just plain stupid and should I join you people in computing happiness?
