Well I just purchased a refurbished 15" 2.4 MBP from the apple store. It looked like a steal so I bought it. The spec said... 2.4 processor, 2BG memory, 160 HD, GeForce 8600M GT with 256 MB of GDDR3 SDRAM. Now for $1,299, I went and bought it. Paid like $1,400 after taxes and shipping. I did some reasearch and called apple to see what processor I had, but nobody could tell me what type. So I went to Everymac.com and found that it is a "Merom" and not a "Penryn". The only way I know is because mine will come with a 160 GB HD and not the standard 200 GB HD. Also because the order status has product number "FB075LL/A." So now I'm torn. I can't cancel the order but I can return it once I get it for a refund. I can save up $600 more and get a new unibody and have the most current MBP with student discount or wait for a refub one at apple.com. I do mostly intermediate video editing and want to start using Motion along with alot of FX plugins for Final cut pro. I know that the one I orders will be fine, but...I'm basically getting a late 2007 model, which is already old. so I as for advise, what would you do? return and continue saving or keep.
