    I was planning on getting the i5 for $1449 with 1gb 5750. I then saw the late 2009 i7 for $1369. I would add applecare if I got the 2009 so I could get at least 3 years out of it. It's graphics seems to be at most 15% weaker with a stronger processor and higher geekbench score. Keep in mind that I am budget conscious:cool:.

    Which refurb are you going for? Which one is the best deal?

    holy cow they both sold out. I bet they'll get more previous gen i5s in eventually but I'm not as hopeful for the i7. Oh well, maybe i'll save for a new 27 or wait for the refurbs. If the new models support 1080p video in then it will be very hard for me to get an older one.
