Hello LockerGnome!

I am currently in the market for a new laptop (I have a 21.5 inch iMac Right now), so I am selling the iMac to get the Pro. Anyways, I am stuck between two right now. Both of them are refurbished, because that is the best way to go, and both of them are 13.3 inches. However, the only difference between the two is that one is from Early 2011 and has a 2.3 GHz i5, and the other, a 2.4 GHz i5. I think the hard drive size is a bit bigger on the 2.4 GHz one as well. The thing I am stuck on is the price. The 2.3 costs $929, and the 2.4 costs $1019. I have close to enough money, but I still value $100 either way. Is it worth it to get the extra processing power? BTW, I should also mention I have a 320GB and 1TB external drive, so the HDD space is not that big of a deal to me. Thanks!

I always go with the best specs, because then I'll meet the requirements for the next couple OS upgrades, when they come out. I don't buy new hardware very often :)

That's the exact reason why I chose my macbook pro over the one I was looking at before. Honestly, it sometimes saves you money by spending more.

One thing right now, wait for a expected refresh on the macbook that is supposed to be soon

Go for the 2.4. You don't wanna spend a thousand bucks and then regret not having that little extra power.
