    Hello,
    Does anyone know the typical time from release-to-refurb on the apple site? I am dying for a new MBP 17 but want to hold out for the refurb discount.
    Thanks,
    gs

    Depends on so many factors, like, when will someone return one?

    You can never really know when anything is going to hit the refurb store. Check often.

    Yea, I check twice a day but nothing is posted yet. I thought there was a 6 month rule or something. As soon as they issue the refurb UMBP, the price of the older model will drop considerably! Apple has to account for that.
    Didn't know if there was a rule of thumb for this...
