Finally after weeks of bouncing back and forth between a MB, MBP, whether I wanted a black one, white, refurb one, new one, Amazon, AAFES (military) store, JR.com... I finally decided that I liked my current laptop (Dell M1210) due to it's portability and while I like the MBP's specs a lot, I just couldn't justify the price jump. I probably spent a little more than I wanted but I really wanted a black one. There's just something about it. I dunno. Anyway, I paid $1160 with shipping for a new previous gen (2.2Ghz) black Macbook. A refurb from the Apple store (which seem to go quick) would've cost me about $25-30 less so not too bad I don't think. I'm really looking forward to playing with my first Mac. If things go well (and I'm sure they will, I'm probably going to buy an iPhone and a new Macbook pro when the newer models are released. I act as if I'm rich or something.
