    So, I sold my current macbook in hopes buying an open box 15" rMBP that was marked down to about $1750. But they sold out of it before I could snag it.

    Now, i'm NOT taking any deal less than that. Do you guys have any idea of where else I could look for a deal like this???

    It was a high end rMBP from 2012
    512gb SSD
    8gigs ram
    quad core i7 2.6ghz

    What were the specs? Because you can get a base 15" for $1599:

    When machines come on to the refurb store you need to be ready to buy. They don't hang around. Especially if you're looking at the higher end models.

    I'd start scouring Best Buy and see if any stores near you get open box or clearance machines. I posted up for someone last week that same machine you want above and I think BB had it for around $2k on clearance in my local store. I was able to pick up a 2.7, 16GB, 512BG for $2k a few months back by haggling with the guys.

    Go to the BB website and click on Shops and Deals->In Store Clearance and Open Box and plug in your zip code and check the local stores.
