    This is actually a GREAT deal, $1269 for dual core i7.
    I guess it's safe to say that it takes ~10 weeks for a newly released item to show up in the refurb store.

    I bought a 13" i5 MBP on sale for $200 off and installed 8GB DDR 3 very fast ram plus a 750GB 7200 WD HD for $110 for less that your refurbished one, plus I have a 320 GB HD and 4GB DDR3 to dispose of which will lower my net cost slightly.

    This computer is an i7, which costs more. What is your point?

    No surprise it went so quick.
    I wonder why people buy USED mac products from Craigslist and Ebay, when the refurb from apple are pretty much the same price and you're getting quality from Apple.
    Doesn't make much sense to me.

    I just purchased a 1 month old i7 2.0ghz MBP on Craigslist for $1,550. I have also purchased a refurb MacBook Air recently. They are both great machines. I think when it comes to Craigslist you just need to be careful with what you buy.

    His point is he doesn't feel the i7 is worth the extra cash over the i5. With the price difference he made substantial upgrades that still came in under the price do the i7.

    If it was $100 more then I'd pay for the i7.
