I was thinking of getting a referb from they apple store. They have a mac pro quad 2.66 for $1,999.00 or a 3.0 for $2,299. Plenty of power for my needs. My only concern is that these models were first released in mid 2006. Is their a chance that the ones offered could be that old. Are apple referbs some times 1 1/2 year old computers that pervious owners, had to have replaced under apple warranty. I know that apple goes over any referb. With a fine tooth comb, before they leave. But I would sure hate to get a computer, from some previous user. Who was a hard core video editor. With hundreds of hours on the computer.
