I took the plunge and bought a MacBook Pro. I found a great deal on a refurbished unit at the Apple Store.
As it turns out, I think this one is brand new. This 15 inch book has the LCD vs the new LED screens. Apart from that there is no difference (except this is not the Santa Rosa Chip as far as I know, which has no bearing on my world at all). This purchase saved me $400.00, and I have a brand new machine that I absolutely love. The unit arrived Friday, and I have got around it quite well for a few days now. I have transferred all my relevant files to the machine, including my iTunes library of over 10,000 songs, and all my photos. My iPod works flawlessly as well. All I had to do was re format it for Mac. Before I did that it wasn't playing nice, but now it's perfect.
I think I'm in love. I can see this thing being a great tool for me in both computer work and audio production, of course!
