I'm not trying to speculate anything or say this has anything to do with new MBP's that are suppose to come out but there seem to be quite a few refurbs that have been added to the store, more than I have seen in a while. I have been waiting to get 15" and I just purchased the 2.53 for $1,499. I know many others have been waiting for the store to be refreshed. I really could care less about the refreshed Pro's. Unless they have something revolutionary, this will do me fine.
