    I am going to sell my current Macbook Pro and get a new one 15". There is a refurbished one and then the brand new one that just came out. I can get the Educational discount on the new one and also a free ipod touch.

    I don't really care that the new one has an SD card slot because I will get a 11-in-1 express card memory card reader.

    So, which one should I get?

    EDIT: 400 posts!!!!

    Same as drkassassin. With your edu discount, and if you sell the iPod, that's roughly 300 dollars off.

    definitely new one... like seefreaky said.. it'll work out around $300 off!! that's a great price for a new macbook. Especially since your selling the old one... so if you get lucky you'll only have to pay a small amount towards the new MBP

    BS. I bought a refurb, and I was more excited than a kid at Christmas. I basically got $250 off just because it was labeled "refurbished" on the site. There wasn't a single flaw with it, and it was like I was opening a brand new Macbook.

    Get the refurb 2.53 if you can find one. I believe they are selling as low as 1400 and you're getting the 9600GT gfx card. The only thing you're missing out on is battery so if that's important get a new one.
