You'll be fine with the gnu, they are both good boards. BTW don't always trust the "like new" explanation. That can mean many different things. Such as well its "like new" because the layers are still holding together even though they are chipped ridiculously. Or, It's "like new," except for the gouges in the base, etc. Especially if the gnu is brand new you will be fine.
