Refurbished MacBook Pro - Does It Worth The Money?
Honestly sp 00004000 eaking, refurbished macbook pro is as dependable as new macs. I have owned two refurbished Macs and never had a hitch with either. They come with the same warranty as a new Mac and you can continually procure apple care to extend the warranty. They are same as any other computer, but faster, and i never come across any obstacle with connecting to the Internet.
In other words it is a fantastic computer. Some of them do have a small number of scratches but then, none of that hurts. The ultimate goal here is to save a couple hundred bucks. In fact, mine smells like brand new. I do endorse it as it is guaranteed to work comletely better.

Is it possible to upgrade my 13' MacBook Pro's processor?
I have the most Basic MacBook Pro that I bought in the Summer of 09. I have a low GHZ (2.24 GHZ Core 2 Duo) processor that I'm afraid will cause my Mac to become obsolete before something with a larger processor.
Perhaps I'm wrong and the processor's size has nothing to do with how long the computer will do good for me.
Will WinXP home work to the full potential of the macbook pro core2duo processor?

It will work fine. My Macbook pro actually makes a decent Windows computer. The only thing that might disappoint you is high level games or a 00 CAD program, but that would vbe the same with most any laptop.

When is the Sandy Bridge processor coming out for the macbook pro duel core system?
What is the difference between the Sandy bridge processor and the current processor in the macbook pro? Is it worth waiting for apple to renovate the macbook pro?
The dual core Macbook Pro contains either a 2.5 GHz Core i5-2410M or a 2.7GHz Core i7-2620M processor. Both of those processors are part of the 2nd generation of Intel Core i processors, the series code-named "Sandy Bridge".
"Sandy Bridge" is the code name for a whole series of processors, not a single processor. It's the name of the design shared by a group of related processors. The Sandy Bridge design is about 15% faster at the same clock speed compared to the previous Westmere design.
