    Okay my recent macbook pro 13" has been water damaged and burned up. i am parting it out soon as it will cost to much to repair.

    Buying a refurb from apple.

    I cannot decide between the following.

    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    13" Screen
    4 gig of ddr3 ram
    320GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
    NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory
    1269$ total


    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.53GHz Intel Core i5
    15" Screen
    4 Gig of ddr3 ram
    500GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
    VIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR3 memory
    1699$ total

    I travel alot. but i also like the idea of a bit more screen space since i play alot of video games.

    What one should i go with? what one do you recommend?

    The i5 is worth the extra cash. You will be kicking yourself in 3 months if you get the C2D.
