I'm looking to purchase a 13" MBP. Apple has reburbished 2010 models on their website. Here's the specs: Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Originally released April 2010 13.3-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display 4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM 250GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm 8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory 1 yr. warranty $929 A new basic 13" MBP specs are: 13-inch: 2.3 GHz 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 4GB 1333MHz 320GB 5400-rpm1 Intel HD Graphics 3000 1 yr. warranty $1200 Price difference: $271 What I'll use it for: mainly e-mail, internet, photo management, nothing graphic/processor intensive, no gaming Questions: 1. Will I notice any difference b/t Intel Core 2 Duo processor vs. Intel i5? 2. Are there software differences b/t 2010 vs. 2011 model? 3. Are there hardware differences (i.e. #USB ports, SD slot, camera, etc.)? 4. Any other major differences? (HD size doesn't matter to me as either are adequate) Thanks!
