    Hey everybody,
    I've been lurking on macrumors for a few months browsing the MBP forum. Now that the MBP's are finally refreshed and the back to school promo is on the horizon, I've got to begin making a decision.

    My question is this:

    Where would I get more bang for my buck?

    In the refreshed lower end 13" MBP or the pre-refresh higher end 13" MBP?

    There's one from before the refresh in the refurb store for $1189, and since this will be my first Mac I thought I'd ask for some input before choosing.

    They will be probably around the same price ? Definately the new lower end with 10h battery and 320M graphics. Difference between 2.4 and 2.53 is really negligible.

    You'll have to decide for yourself whats important to you, but they are very close.

    As a shameless plug, I'm selling my mid '09 on eBay. One in my sig minus the ssd, replacing with 250gb drive and leaving in 4gb - for $999. :D
