I kind of agree.
$1199 Refurb T7400 2.16 cpu, x1600 128mb video, 250gb hd, 2x512mb ram
$1249 New T7300 2.00 cpu, hd2400xt 128mb video, 1x1gb ram
$1499 New T7700 2.40 cpu, hd2600pro 256mb video, 320gb hd, 1x1gb ram
No real big differences between the specs, the new ones though are aluminum, glossy and thinner. Tough Decision >>>>>>>>>>>>>
Looks like to me the $1199 refurb would be the best value in a 20' today...would you guys agree???

yes, but why not the new one for $1249???

So for $50 less you get a processor worth $191 more and better ram, even know refurb looks like $250 more value. Make sense or am I on the wrong track here? I thought apple refurb was like brand new anyway?

well it might not be OBSOLETE. but definately cheaper.
get what you NEED. not everyone 'needs' /wants the latest and greatest
unless you really need it for video editing/photoshop/ editing music/ making movies etc. you won't necessarily NEED the latest and greatest.. you might WANT it. but that's another story
i bought a 1st gen macbook (blackbook) a few months later they upgraded it from core duo to core2 duo. more memory etc. and faster processor speeds. but i needed a laptop at the time. so i got it.
no regrets.. if you always see your investment as depreciating and thinking you're not getting the 'best best deal' b/c you could have waited then you're not really enjoying what you got
