Refurbished MBA 13" Haswell ETA?
I'm in the market for a MBA for school but I've currently got a 15" MBP so it's not very urgent. I was wondering if anyone had a rough idea as to when Apple starts releasing current gen hardware into their refurb'd store. I can take advantage of the education pricing right now but the discount isn't really all that attractive compared to the refurb prices.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

It's usually at least a few months before new models start showing up as refurbs. They usually start with small discounts too... around 15%
It used to be that the education discounted machines ended up being roughly the same price as the refurbished machines... is that not the case anymore? To be fair, it's been a decade since I bought a Mac with an education discount.
Edit: Also, I definitely wouldn't expect refurbished MBAs until after the back-to-school promotion ends at the least.

the mid-2012 13" MBA with 8gb, i7 and 256gb ssd is going for $1199 (Canadian) in the refurbed section. Pricing out a similar haswell version sees the educational pricing around $1,449 with the same configuration. Sounds like I may have to pull the trigger now if I want one any time soon.
