    60fps? Definately not. It MIGHT get up to 40fps tops but I wouldn't count on it.

    That's what I did. Haven't regretted it for a minute. Saved me $400, and the only thing I didn't get was the pretty white box. I'll take it.

    I think the 2.53GHz Refurbished Macbook Pro is the best for its price. It has the 9600M GT with 512MB of VRAM, for only $1449. Keep checking daily for it to show up again. If you don't want to wait, the 2.4GHz or 2.66GHz Refurbished Macbook Pros are fine.

    Have a friend use their once a year employee 25% discount on your macbook pro and you will basically pay a refurbished price for a brand new one. I would never buy a refurbished computer, especially a laptop when components have short life spans.
