    They have been selling out very well it seems, the only ones left are the white Core Duo 2.0ghz models. If you are in the market for one better grab one soon before they are gone forever! :)

    Yes, the quantity for all other MacBook models is zero...they're gone from the refurb store.

    That said, it's not uncommon to run out of things at this time of the week...they typically restock the refurb store on Wednesday mornings

    I've been watching that, too

    and I hope they do restock! Payday is not until Friday, and I wanted to purchase a Macbook AFTER MWSF...just in case...I don't know, but just in case something else struck my fancy instead!

    Don't fret. If it is anything like the past, Apple will completely refill the refurb store the day of MWSF.

    I'm hoping for the same thing. Probably buying my wife's MacBook off Amazon, but I'm hoping for a refurbed MB and a new Mac mini. Apple will own me! w00t.

    I just sold my old Mac Mini, money already in the bank :D

    If a new one comes out I will be able to snag one off the refurb store for cheaper than now and probably even come out ahead! :eek:

    They're baaack...

    Looks like the MB stock has been replenished in the US refurb' store, though no MB C2D's :( . However, the C2D 15" MBP's are back in multiple models, in addition to 2 models of C2D 17" and a refreshed list of CD MBP models.

    They're all good deals. I'm just talking about what I myself would buy. I couldn't afford the C2D. The CD? Maybe, but that's pushing it.

    WOW! The stock in the refurbished store totally exploded today. They even brought out a lot of PPC stuff.

    They did something similar with the ipod refurb store a few days before Christmas. There were 3g and 4g ipods galore.

    I'm wishing for a C2D with a 160GB on the refurb site. Am I crazy or what? :eek:

    I got my MB from refurb stock. My only regret is that when I purchased it, they were out of the superdrive. 2 days later, they got'em in :(

    I'll probably get an external DVD-R so I can use it on all my machines, so it's not all bad.
