    Your opinion please.

    My school is selling the Santa Rosa MBP 2.4 ghz for $1500 USD.

    This is $300 cheaper than the EDU price for the new Penryn MBP 2.4 ghz.

    Do you think it's worth the $300 to get the newer model? The specs are very very similar (except for the multi-touch trackpad, of course).

    Thanks for your advice.

    Are they charging you sales tax? It's a steal nonetheless.

    thanks for your replies.

    no, those prices don't include sales tax. they are clearing out old inventory. i just wanted to know what macrumor people thought. so $300 is too much to pay for multitouch?

    Wow thats a great price. If you don't mind waiting,literally seconds longer to encode a video or using special effects in photoshop then go for it. Thats is a super fat discount for a very good machine.

    Definitely a very good deal. The (performance) difference is pretty insignificant.

    Buy it before they're gone.

    No. I'd buy the old one at $1500 if I could.
