    So the refurbished 15'' is now roughly the same price as the 2011 13'', and I'm contemplating my choices.

    My question is, are there any real differences between these two machines besides thunderbolt? How useful will thunderbolt really be? Are the screens any different?

    Both have the i5 Dual Core processor, 320gb drive, and 4gb of ram standard. Am I missing anything?

    Thoughts?

    The new one has a quad core but if your not doing a lot of heavy work with it you may be better off with the 15"

    You can always upgrade the RAM or HDD but you cant stretch the screen. ;)

    Many people tend to overlook the new Face Time HD camera feature.

    Besides Thunderbolt, I'm pretty sure the graphics in the basic 13" is worse...
