Thanks for posting I have just been pricing up refurb apples but didn't realise Apple themselves had a refurb store.

Don't want to hijak the thread but would love opinions on the i5 1.7GHz with intel HD 3000 vs 2.13GHz Intel core duo with Nvidia 320M graphics, both will be 4GB ram. I will be running mostly adobe lightroom and sometimes photoshop concurrently but other than that mostly web use and light gaming........... I always assumed that thei5 would be the best for this but not sure about the intel HD graphics?

thanks in advance.....

You might want to go for the new model which has HD4000 as this supports OpenCL which will accelerate Photoshop CS6:

HD3000 is rated higher than the Nvidia 320M:

Go for the i5 version, battery life isn't as good as the core-duo is but it's a much more powerful machine
