    One of my friends just bought a brand new MBP 15" 2.8 i7 Hi res Antiglare
    but unfortunately he need money now.He want to sell this jewel and he didn't open it until now.He want 2400 and he will give me mac office 2011.
    What do you think about this deal? Should I take it from him or is it better to wait until the next generation?:confused:

    The same model costs 2,399 USD in the Apple Online Store, though you don't get MS Office 2011 for Mac with it I suppose.
    Therefore you would save 120 USD.

    Btw, as you didn't state your needs, it is fully up to you, if this machine will work for you or if you need a much better, yet unreleased MBP to frape around.

    Sorry, forgot about the AG HR option.
    It is an okay deal, though you might find better deals on eBay, but may get a more used machine.

    Remember that you have to pay tax if you buy it from apple so I'd just get it.

    Pros of buying it:
    - No tax to pay
    - MS Office for free
    - Saved on the Hi-res Antiglare option

    Neutral:
    - Might be too much machine for your needs

    Cons:
    - Nearing a refresh cycle

    Now, what are your needs so I can lay this to rest. However, as off now, it looks more of a "DO GET IT".
