Save yourself some money and get a used 50D. Better built and with weather sealing. Make sure you get them to tell you the shutter count on the camera. They have a usual lifespan of 100k so getting one at 30k or under will mean you will be able to use it for a long time to come.
But all that said I am a nikon guy myself. :3
The 60D has partial weather sealing just like the 50D. I do admit though that magnesium alloy feels much, much better than the polycarbonate body
That said, there isn't much of a difference in durability. And like I said earlier, the 60D does use the T2i's/7D's sensor, so it has the same high ISO performance as them.

Wow, didn't know refurbs were going for that price. Nice!
