I just bought an old-style Macbook Pro (2.4 Ghz, 200 GB, 2 Gig, Nvidia 8600GT) from Macmall. With the rebate it will be around $1299.00 total (no tax/shipping). I thought (and still think) this is a great deal, but now I'm learning that the 8600GT is defective. Anyway, I was wondering if I should just refuse the package when I receive it. That is what the nice folks at Macmall said I should do if I didn't want it. On the other hand, this is a really sweet laptop for a great deal, and I think it's nicer than the new Macbooks (I can't afford a new MBP). What do you think? Is the 8600 too much of a risk? If it fails in two years + 1 day am I out of luck? (I usually keep my mac laptops for 5 years. This is a replacement for my PB G4 Al 1Ghz (2003) that replaced my Powerbook 1400cs (1997).
