Johnny,

Seems like most of the Apple dealers rarely give much more of a deal than just buying from Apple.

I've had very good luck with their refurb units. Go to store.apple.com and scroll down on the right to the red SAVE tag. There's a 15in MacBook Pro for $1350 which has the same warranty as a new one. I don't think the ed disc are any better.

Also, there's a strong thought to get the extended warranty (something I never do, except for the Mac). It not only gives you the hardware warranty, but you can call for tech support anytime, and they are pretty helpful (better than most other computer support).

I'm currently using a 15in PB G4, which I bought that way. Great machine. My partner has one, too. We tried the 17 and found it just too awkward for travel and it's a lot more money. We both have desk monitors for home/office use that work very well. (you can set up a dual monitor, if you want).

I've got several Macs (some for my print shop), just bought a Intel IMac 20, which is a lot of machine for the $ and will probably go the MacBook Pro 15 next year.

Also have a few PCs, not nearly the quality or fun.
