anybody who has read my other posts knows how well I love my G5. The G5 is my very first mac ever and has been an absolute joy to use. Such a joy in fact, that it has led me to consider the possibility that a "less than new" mbp/pb might in fact be the smart purchase. So, having said that, I would like to pose this to the forum. What do you think would be the best purchase, in terms of overall performance versus price, in a used, "less than new" mbp/pb? The only other option would be to go for the new 13" macbook pro, with the 2.5 ghz core 2 duo processor. At 1499.00$ that would be pushing it pretty hard. Thank you everyone for your opinions. Anthony.
