Refurb ATV3?

Yea, I am a tightwad. The ATV3 has been out for a month now. When will we see discounted refurbished units available in the Apple Store?

HArd to say right now.
I would give it another month or two. I picked mine up at launch! Airplay is pretty awesome. Cant wait for it to come to the Mac!

I would say you have a while to wait. The price of the current product usually only drops a little before the new version goes on the market. I would say you have at least a good year to go.

First batches of refurbished units are stocked and use for Warranty replacements, you won't see any on the Apple store for a long while

I ordered mine tonight. Looking forward to trying out a second-gen (third gen?) Netflix streaming device and being able to sell my tricked out original ATV on eBay.
