I have been trying to decide if the 2GB of memory in the 'old' refurb MBP's will be enough for me as upgrading is at least $119 from Crucial. If I buy new, my Mom's NYS discount will save me $100, but including tax, that's still $167 more than the refurb. Plus, I can have it now whereas a refurb must be shipped. Are the new specs for the 13" worth the $167? I will be buying from either Apple or Best Buy since they both have no interest financing deals.
