My current desktop is pretty old (~5 years?) and I'm getting quite fed up with Windows and the slowness of my machine. I've been thinking switching to Mac for a while now but after last night's crashing fiasco I think that drew the line. Anyway I was looking around and found refurbished MacBook Pro on Apple's site. More specifically this one: http://store.apple.com/ca_edu_108250/product/FB134LL/A?mco=MjE0NDk5Mw Is it pretty safe to assume that the refurbished MBP are as good as brand new ones? Also it is a good idea to get the "old" MBP? In terms of performance there doesn't seem to be any significant real time difference between the new and old MBP (I think?). Typical everyday use: -browse internet, email, IM -photo/movie editing Replies are much appreciated.
