    In the next month or so, I will be keeping my eye out for a MBP. I am fine with an older, used one, but I want it in good shape, as I am anal about my laptops. Will it be possible to find one for about $1,000?

    Thanks in advance!

    yes easily
    over here the used mb's tend to go for sub 1000 figures least expensive i saw was 650 most expensive 900

    a pro however might be more difficult
    you really want that bigger screen and dedicated vid card ?

    Yeah I do.

    I also love the casing and backlit keyboard. Those are huge selling points to me!

    I've seen some of the earlier MBP models, 1.83 Core Duo's, go for a little over $1000 here before, but they don't pop up too often. But the new macbooks (for everything but gaming) will blow a CD MBP away. But if the looks of it are that important to you, then go for it!
