    Hi,

    I'm talking about the one right before the unibody macbook pros.
    I'm looking for a 2.4 ghz 25 watt penryn model, matte screen, etc.

    Is there a place that still sells new ones besides mac mall? They want $1550 for it, which I remember used to be only $1350.

    I definitely prefer the "old" tech more than this round of unibody macbook pro.

    I would try the Refub store first. I'm not sure what they have there right now, but they usually have a good selection. And believe it or not, ebay or craigslist wouldn't be terrible solutions either.

    Apple's refurb store probably. Ebay, Amazon (I think) and I do believe newegg has some of the older kind as well.

    Thanks. I looked and apple refurbs for $1350 are not there. They start at $1700 for the unibody macbook pros.

    Amazon doesn't show these "older" penryn macbook pros either.

    They show up on the refurb story fairly frequently, usually at least once a week. You just have to check religiously. Unfortunately it's not very reliable. If unable to wait or find one online, check the online mac distributors (amazon, macmall, etc.). Good hunting!

    macsales.com should also have some. but ebay or craigs list is probably your best and cheapest bet.
