First, you should know that I use an HDTV to run my laptop through at home, which works great as an external monitor with HDMI. I have a white macbook, older core duo version, and an older G4 tower. There is no point to have both of these computers and now that the new macbooks have been updated I feel like its time to change. So my options are (price is an issue) 1. Black macbook new with edu discount 1399 2. refurbished black macbook 1299 3. refurbished MBP 1699 4. new MBP with edu discount 1799 I have heard the black MB are just as competent as the low end MBPs... any thought on how to proceed in my particular sitch? Thanks!
