    The first refurb Core 2 Duo Macbook (one model only) is available in the UK.

    None on the US site at time of writing.

    No way! I was waiting for a black C2D. Noo! I was most likely in class too...darn it. Looks like I'll have to wait another week :(

    EDIT:
    Do you remember how much it was going for? $999?

    I would guess that they would be closer to 1299 then 999 considering they sell the Core Duo BlackBook refurbs for 999. Just a guess though since I did not seem them on there.

    That's my baby too! Oh well, I can wait another few weeks, perhaps Leopard will be out by then.

    US Refurb'

    Why wait a week? If they're going to be in the US refurb store, they might be there before next Tuesday. I'm not necessarily seeing a full week between the next refresh of stock. :)

    $1299 seems a bit pricey still (I know you're guesstimating). Oh well...I guess we'll have to play the wait game...-sighs-

    Info and linky

    This should work.

    Discounts on Macbooks are typically about 12-15% off C2D laptops. this compares with up to 23% off the older but still good CD laptops.

    Discounts on the MacBook Pro are better, with 15-16%off C2D, and up to 44% off the CD models.

    Hmm. I'm tempted to buy a CD macbook pro at 44% discount! Means giving up the extra core and 802.11n wireless tho. Either that or wait for the next model to come out, so that I can snag a C2D cheaper.
