Hi, I was browsing Apple's refurbished selection and found that the lowest lever 13" mbp are available. I was planning to purchase a new one with the edu discount but now, I need some help deciding between the refurbished and new. Before you instantly say get the New, i must add that I already have an ipod touch, getting the back to school sale would me me upgrading to a 32gb model and selling my current 8gb. so (tax=6%) Refurbished(1019+100)1.06=1196.14-100=1086.14 New (1099+100+299)1.06=1587.88-199-100-100(estimated resale of my 8gb touch)=1188.88 refurb 15 inch(more costly, but considering it) (1529+100)1.06=1726.74-100=1626.74. I think that the 13" specs would suffice for my needs but i would like longevity and viability for at least 4-5 years. Which would you go for? Thanks everybody! Can't wait finally become a mac!
