    Just checked and the Core 2 Duo Imacs are up in the refurb store

    The 17" is 899

    The 20" is 1299

    The 24" is 1699.

    Wow, that was quick.

    My thoughts exactly, I wonder if there was a bigger intial problem then I thought. I still want that 24" though!

    It is surprising, but I guess Apple's expanding market and their expanding retail presence both argue generally for more rapid availability of refurbs. I wonder maybe too, as it does seem like refurbs are coming in faster, if either the Intels are easier to inspect for some reason or if Apple and the refurbisher have been working to reduce cycle time?

    Wow, unless I get a killer deal on a new machine via education discounts I want a refurbished Mac!

    Shipping in 30 Business Days..Some Intel Refurbs

    Great deals...Even the 2.66Ghz Mac Pro at 2,199. Although, if you look at the $899 iMac it says ships in 30 Business Days along with the Mac Pro. Wow.

    I'm seriously tempted by the 20" iMac through the refurb store. I really want the 24" w/ the 7600GT, but $1299 compared to $2124 is mighty tempting.
