okay.. so I've finally made up my mind.. and I'm going all out for the 17" MBP w/ antiglare. but now I"m not sure if I should go with a refurb for $1739 or the new one (base model).. which would you choose, keep in mind that I'm not upgrading to i7 if I get the new one. specs of the refurb 17" include: $1739 antiglare 2.66ghz c2d 4gb ram 320gb hdd 9600gt 512mb or the new 17" with i5/AG.. which is $2150 with my edu discount. is it worth $500 more for the new one? I'm leaning towards the previous model because it seems plenty fast for my needs (coming from a G4 here). And I actually don't like the new automatic gpu switching because it seems like it needs some tweaking from what I've read. But are there any improvements to the new one that I"m overlooking.. for example is the display better?
