I thought I'd seen a similar post a while ago, but I couldn't dig it up with a search... So I've been waiting to buy a Mac for almost 2 years. Originally, I wanted a MBP, but after considering almost every possible decision, the new SR MacBooks have inspired me to pull the trigger somehow. I was going to just go for the white 2.2 SR MacBook, but then the case chipping/cracking issue really started bothering me. I never had too much of a problem with the 13.3-inch screen, but then the glossiness REALLY started to turn me off once I realized that I was actually about to buy the MB. The matte screen MBP option is starting to become a deal breaker for me-- is that stupid? I seem to get a lot of eye strain on my glossy HP laptop, but some people say that Apple's glossy screens are somehow "different." So I can't decide between the brand new SR MB ($1,200) or a matte, 2.16 C2D MBP from the refurb store ($1,500). I'd like to be able to at least have the option of installing 'Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway' with boot camp, and I guess that's pretty much out of the question, in terms of performance, with the x3100? Ahhhh, I'd also like to save a little money with the MB in order to better justify getting an iPod touch on the side. I don't know if it's wiser to save the money on the newer machine (MB) or to have a computer that might serve me better in the long run (refurb MBP). Sorry for the trouble, but thanks in advance for any advice.
