    I don't know if this is a normal price or not but 17" refurbished MBPs are on sale at the apple store for $2149!!!!

    They have the following specs:
    17-inch glossy widescreen display
    2GB memory
    160GB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB of GDDR3 memory
    Built-in iSight Camera

    Is it just me or is that the best price we've seen them at before?

    Not to mention 30" displays for $1499!!! (regularaly $3299)

    Yeah, very good prices on refurb 15" and 17" last gen MBPs now. I snagged a 2.2 MBP for $1450 myself. The 30" ACD price is the same as usual I believe...it's actually a marketing ploy listing the $3299 price, as that was just the price they first came out as however many years ago. The current new price is $1800 I believe...so still a good deal, but nothing outstanding.

    I snagged one of these 17" puppies last night. Says prepared for shipping, but is not scheduled to ship until March 6-10 and Delivered between March 10-14. Since it is prepared for shipping now, why not ship it now?

    I'm pumped and ready for it. Got my OWC 4GB memory delivered today.
