    Despite still saying, Open everyday until 25/06... (Which has passed btw :p) Significance of this is hard to work out (For non-uk members, the Apple refurb store is usually only open on wednesdays, with very limited stock.) The store is still open with big discounts AND lots of stock.

    Please be readying space for new products!!

    Yes i noticed that too and have been checking the refurbished store for at least the past month, but all they ever have on there are a few old power macs, xserves and old ipods (at least they've finally sold the last of those!)

    Yeah...although the ad advertising the refurb store still says Wednesday only so i wonder how many people bother clicking through to it.

    too bad the UK, German and French refurb stores don't deliver to Belgium :(

    the dual 2ghz models look really nice.

    price drops in the future?

    One possible answer is Apple is flushing out lot of the older products to make room for newer pricing. So the Dual 1.8ghz for £944 looks OK but won't look like such a great deal when the Dual 2.0Ghz price drops to the £999 (as soon as the single 1.8ghz is finally cleared out).

    They probaly thought what the hell, leave the refurb store open and lets FINALLY get rid of this ... hardware

    In other words the next Powermac update isn't going to be hardware related, more likely price drops.
