    You've got to give us a little more info than that. What do you do with your comp? Travel? Power-user? Gaming? What is important to you?

    I would say if you need the video card for visual/games, I'd get the refurb. If you travel more, probably the newer, although you could buy a second battery I guess...

    Then get the refurb. You don't need the 7 hour battery

    I would definitely go refurb, both for the price and dedicated graphics....
    You will not notice the 130mhz difference.
