    Ive only had my white macbook for a couple of months and i love it but im selling it tomorrow. I bought it for around 800 and im selling it for just under $1000. Do you guys think i can find a macbook pro for around 1300. I know how the macbook core duos ran hot. Does this apply to the Macbook pro core duos as well? I really wasnt bothered by the heat of the macbook but i was just wondering. I want the macbook pro because of video card. I really want the macbook pro. What would you guys do?

    i already have a person willing to buy it for just under $1000 and yes its more than i paid for it. Anyways what im really asking is do you think i can pick up a used macbook pro or a refurb macbook pro from apple for around $1300. And is the Core 2 Duo really worth $2000. I wouldnt mind getting a used core duo or a refurb core duo from apple if its around $1300. I am not planning on doing anything major with the macbook pro except using the interent, word processing and the occasional game (i want the Pro for the dedicated vid card)

    you might be able to find one on ebay, but not from apple. you're looking at about $1550+tax, so to answer your question, no. sorry

    holy crap make up your mind. Well i saw some deals on macbook pros for $1200 when school bookstores were liquidating their stock. So now i have to decide whether to just get a macbook core 2 duo or wait for a deal on a macbook pro core duo

    a core duo pro refurb will pop up in apple.com every once in a while for 1350.

    but it'll be slower than a macbook c2d for non-3d apps.

    so i found a macbook pro with the 1.83GHz core duo processor, 1GB ram and 128MB vid card for $1300. Would you guys buy it or wait for the next generation of macbook pros to come out so that the current generation will lower in price?

    did i say that the core duos were current generation? :hsugh:

    No i asked if you guys would buy the older core duo or wait for the next generation of macbook pros to come out so that the current generation (core 2 duo) will lower in price. Thanks for trying to answer my question.
