Refurbished MBA Air 11" Ultimate Impressions

Just got my refurb after waiting only a day of regular shipping!

This is my first refurb MacBook and I gotta say, it's perfect in every way the moment I unpacked it from the somewhat bland white packaging.

Everything appear brand spanking new down to the last plastic wrap.

All this for a total savings of $200!!!

If all goes well from here, I can assure you that this is not my last Apple refurb.

Anyway, sorry for a meaningless post. I just thought of venting my excitement.

What day did you order it from Apple? I placed an order for a refurbished 11" MBA 'ultimate' on Thursday, got a shipment notification email on Friday but my tracking number still isn't even working.

Glad to hear you are happy with it, I am even more excited now!

Enjoy your purchase. Let us know what you think about it after you've had some time to put it through your normal paces.

I actually ordered it last Thursday just like you and the tracking did not work until this morning ...that's when it said it's on a truck for delivery! I noticed that the package came from a local Apple warehouse just close to where I live. this might explain why I got it really fast.

Good luck to you. I'm sure yours will be there very soon ...you won't be disappointed with it.

UPDATE:

Just found out my unit was manufactured this month (March 2011) and according to Coconut Battery, the battery has 7 cycles on it already (doesn't bother me).

Could the manufacture month be the re-furbishment month? Anybody knows?

Ahhh...thanks for the info.

I'm still thinking if I should calibrate the battery or not but it doesn't hurt to so I'll probably do it.
