Long time lurker, first time poster. Here's my dilemma. I am an incoming senior in a liberal arts college and will be purchasing my first macbook pro. To describe me, I am a life-long time PC user hoping to switch to OSX. I work fairly extensively with macs at school and in my internships given my interests. I need help deciding which refurbished macbook pro to buy for my needs. I am hopefully going to work in the web design/video field. So I need to be able to run the Adobe line of products (CS4/5) without a hitch. I do some hdr photography with photomatix pro. My old hp laptop lasted me 4 years and it was running a 2.1 C2D processor with an AMD 256mb dedicated graphics card. I made that poor thing's video card work by powering a 24" ASUS monitor along with a intuos tablet. I am still a student and I can afford the new high-end 2011 mbps. Barely. However I would like to see if I can get away with a cheaper refurb model and save some money.
