    Yes. The refurb inventory is dependent on product returns and, therefore, is unpredictable.

    If you're looking for a particular item, refurb.me can alert you when it becomes available.

    15" MBP refresh Maybe ? and Maybe not

    Could be, or they are maybe pushing out inventory and making room for newer 15" MBP's coming in this year:eek:

    No, the refurb inventory is not connected to upcoming product releases. They offer refurb inventory as refurbs become available.

    I understand what your saying , what I mean is that there pushing to sell out inventory of the 2 stock configurations of the 15" MBP's, because of new systems coming out in the summer.

    AS of this posting there's still no refurbished 15" MBP :)

    I think it's more likely

    That they are using them to replace the endless 2011 and 2012 models with graphics failure at the moment...

    That's impossible. You can't stick an rMBP board into that of a cMBP, and Ivy Bridge rMBPs with GPU failures will only receive another Ivy Bridge board (rev 2).

    They don't need to "push to sell out inventory", because refurbs are offered as soon as items are returned to Apple and refurbished. The entire process works independent of any new product sales or releases. Some models are returned to Apple with greater frequency than others, and some are more popular with refurb buyers than others. As a result, some items are more frequently unavailable than others. It has nothing to do with the new product releases.

    Not what I meant

    They are replacing them when you have had the same fix 3 times with a newer model. I assumed they were using refurbs for this!!!!

    Take a look around - Best Buy has a number of open box 15"models, as well as being on sale for $1799, along with other authorized retailers like B&H, Adorama, etc.

    I bought a 15"/2.5/16/512/750m for $1600 at Best Buy - it was listed in "Satisfactory" condition because it didn't have iLife re-installed. Never registered, and in perfect condition.
