    if you don't care about hd differences why not just get a white macbook...its cheaper and the only difference would be standard hdd space which you said isn't that big of a deal. if you need the larger screen, get the mbp, if you don't mind the 2" smaller screen, i would suggest the middle of the line macbook, not the blackbook

    That makes more sense. I don't know why that didn't occur to me....

    Ive posted this a few times, but occasionally you can get one model of the MBP for $1299 in the refurb store. It goes quickly, but Ive seen it on at least 3 separate occasions.

    This is the model Ive seen there:

    Yes, but you have to think whether that is really a deal or not. It's only got a gb installed. There's a NEWER generation 2.2 MBP with 2GB and NVDIA instead on ATI graphics for only $150 more.

    And ram is soooo expensive isnt it?

    Im just saying, a MBP for $1299 is a pretty damn good deal next to any MB. You are comparing MBP to MBP. The OP was asking about a new MB vs a refurbed MBP.
