So long story short, I called to place a hold on the new MBP. When I went to buy it, I did not look at the specs carefully. I ended up getting the previous model. I've been looking around and comparing the specs, what would you do in my case, based on features/specs? Previous Intel C2D 2.66Ghz 6MB L2 nVidia 9400m & 9600m GT /w 512mb ExpressCard Slot (This is very useful because I can use a eSATA card) Current Intel C2D 2.66Ghz 3MB L2 nVidia 9400m & 9600m GT /w 256mb 7 Hr Battery Life SD Slot (I don't have any camera that would use this slot) Those are the only big differences between the two that I see. Is there anything else that I'm missing that would make the new one a lot better? Both are the same price Brand new... $1849 (student discount). Let me know your input as I've called the Apple store and they said I can bring it in and exchange it. Thanks!
