I have just purchased the superseded model of the 15″ Macbook Pro. I am very happy with the purchase as I got around $700 of the price of the new unibody Macbook Pros.
In effect it was only $400 more then the top of the line Macbook.
But that is still a lot of money compared to a cheap PC laptop.
But is has a 512MB video card, enough to play Battlefield 2 on a Windows XP bootcamp partition.
