    The education discount price of a 17" MPB i5 is $2099 (stock config)
    at the same time you can get a refurbished 17" MBP C2D 3.06 (4/500/etc..) for the same $2099

    Is someone in Cupertino loosing it? Who would buy the refurbished model over the new model when the prices are the same or $299 more (retail)?

    Okay.. so besides that. Who wouldn't spend $300 more for a laptop with that is so much more powerful?

    What do you mean besides that? $300 buys AppleCare.

    Also the i5 isn't that much faster to everyone.
