I'm locked into one of the MBP models at the Apple online refurb store. They are both $1529. A.) Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz (mid-2009 model) http://store.apple.com/us/product/FB985LL/A?mco=MTA4MzI2Nzk B.) i5 2.4 GHz (2010 model) http://store.apple.com/us/product/FC371LL/A?mco=MTgwOTc2ODA Everything else as far as I can tell is identical (warranty, ram, hard drive, etc.). I'm just not sure which one has better bang for the same buck. Thanks!
