    refurbs are computers which have had issues, so they were returned to Apple, but instead of chucking it, they fixed the broken part, and put it up for sale. They are perfectly good machines, and they are a bargain as well. theres nothing wrong with them :)

    I got my girlfriend's macbook through Apple's refurb store...works great. However, for my Mac Pro I went with Amazon for the free shipping and tax savings (plus the rebate, which is $200 now).

    $Refurb+sales tax > $Amazon w/rebate.

    If you're going with a stock system, I'd go with Amazon.

    I got a refurbished Mac Pro and mine has been operating perfectly since I got it.

    I bought my Mac Pro new, but have bought other things from Apple refurbed. no problems at all. My refurbed studio display was BETTER then the one I got new.
