    only on Tuesday?

    I am not so convinced that Apple only posts new refurbs on Monday night. I have not been searching everyday for the past few months or anything (I mean who wants a new computer that bad....) but I seem to recall a previous post that mentioned some new refurbs listed on a Wednesday morning.
    Happy to be corrected, but if refurbs are simply listed when they become available, potentially that could be any day of the week.
    Happy hunting!

    I think they are updated regularly. I will be checking everyday so I wll confirm, but I have looked later in the week and the next day there is new stuff. We are talking like friday type stuff. I may be wrong and my days are off though.

    There are thousands of buyers watching the refurb listings.
    The best refurbs go FAST so once you figure out what you want
    you have to be ready to pounce. I generally stick to refurbs of the current
    model rather than going back to an earlier release.
    I call in my order direct to my rep at 1-800-MYAPPLE to get a confirmed
    purchase.

    You may get that extra refurb candy or not, but generally your machine
    will arrive in pristine condition.

    If you are entitled to the education discount, then you may benefit more from those prices along with any other buying incentives like printer deals, additional factory RAM etc.

    Buying new allows you to get exactly what you want, where refurbs come "as is" with the factory warranty.

    Happy bargain shopping

    Wow, if I buy that 15" Core2Duo MBP on the Australia Refurb store for $2440 AUD, this would be my biggest impulse buy ever.

    It's a VERY good deal, though. I'm still tempted to just sell my MB for this thing. :eek: I could probably get $1400 for my MB because of my 1GB stick of RAM and upgraded HDD, since RAM in this country is so incredibly expensive.


    I've got to get off the internet. :( Later.

    I'm wanting to buy a refurb just to save money but I may just get a new one because it ships within 24 hours and I don't think I can wait much longer!!! Not very practical, I know! ;)
