    Do I sell my macbook (first gen C2D with 2 gigs of RAM) and throw in cash from my tax refund to get a new MBP or new Macbook? What are your thoughts? Pros and Cons?

    In all seriousness, I have had my current MBP for almost 2 years now. Coincidentally I was just on apples website drooling on the 8 hour life span of the new battery, and the sleek new design.

    I gave it a few minutes of though and realized my MBP is probably at its highest resale value time frame right now, but even with that its functionality and usability is still at 150% for what I need. With that in mind, even if the new MBP cost me $100 out of pocket, it would probably be a unnecessary/bad decision

    I understand, the new MBs and MBPs are just sexy...and I'm really good at impulse buying new toys...

    i did that and got a MBP and everything is stupendous except for the size moving from a MB.

    if size doesn't matter, get the MBP. if that is a big deal, get the MB.

    also, macrumors.com users get like $50 off the price

    I'm a grad student so I'll get the student discount. I was looking at a 15" MBP. I love the portability of my macbook. I'm definitely looking at something I can run an HD monitor off without any problems.

    Are you getting the new MBP either way? I'd sell it.

    are we talking about the new ones because I've heard the older ones (first and second gen) have problems running 1080p on larger monitors. I could be wrong however.

    Are the new MBP only come with the glossy screen? If so what is up with that? I ordered a matte finish on my screen for my current MBP and am absolutely in love with it!

    my last gen MB and current gen MBP handle 1920x1200 just fine, but i dunno how it handles a 16:9 resolution instead of 16:10 like a computer monitor
