    Hi guys,

    I plan to buy a refurbished MacBook Pro 17" (more details below) for £1,199. It doesn't say it's glossy in the refurbished section so it should be matte right??

    Also, if I am not mistaken, it's a revision D released on June 5, 2007...Any problems with this release?

    You got the matte version. And yes, it does potentially have a GPU issue. Apple is covering GPU replacements on MacBook Pros for 2 years after purchase... if that's any consolation to you.

    You can buy a brand new glossy one from jigsaw-24 for £1232+10 delivery. I got one from them s in my Signature. Brand new sealed with leopard from Nov 2007 plus remote and no brown box.

    All uk stock including refurbs comes from a warehouse in the midlands.

    THe version you have is matte, also 15" have been selling on refurb for the last few months, they sell out quite quickly.

    I went to jigsaw-24....a same new macbook pro with 2.4ghz 17 inch and with high definition...costs about £1291.33. (But it's Ordered on request - Do you know what this means?)

    The one in refurbished section in apple website has the same specs but with no high definition, cost about £1199

    So my question is the £100 difference worth it to buy a new high definition one?
