Which 17 inch MacBook Pro should I get ? The refurb 3.06GHz, 2.66GHz, or 2.8GHz?
Wow your even lucky getting a macbook lol ! But id go with the 3.06 ghz !
Is it worth the couple hundred dollars extra? How much of a difference of speed is there between the three?
FYI, the 3.06 GHz model is out of stock if you read below the price Please Register or Log in to view images
I would definitely go with the 2.66GHz model.
I have a 2.66GHz 24" iMac with also 4GB of RAM like the MacBook and it runs great!
You're saving $300 or so also.

Ok thanks for the info! Will it get outdated quicker though?
Apple usually has a MacBook event in October and Intel is coming out with new processors soon, so they will probably be in the new macbooks. If you want the latest and greatest wait until the event next month. Also if you want a deal the current modles will probably end up in clearence for cheap after the new ones are released.
Oh yeah the October Event! Thats right i will definitely get the new 17"!
I would also get the 2.66 Ghz one...
@jimbeam: Intel has already released the Intel Core i5, New i7.
Never heard of the i5...when did it reach its peak?
get the 3.06GHz its the best one
