    I've seen them from time to time elsewhere in very limited quantities, but they are usually a bad deal. Apple refurbs come with the full factory warranty same as a new Apple. I assume they go through very high quality testing, and are repackaged as if new.

    Other refurbs are essentially used computers that some third party has tested in some way, with a very short warranty that has to be handled through them. Often original accessories and CDs are not included.

    But if you really want that, you can look at Powermax.com, themacstore.com, and occasionally buy.com.

    only apple online refurbs have a real 1 year warranty that can be extended to 3 years with apple care. you can search for refurbs from other sellers but they have warranties for no more then 90 days with no apple care option.

    you are better off buying used from ebay and buying a squaretrade warranty.

    use them for a warranty if you buy on ebay

    I've used them, got a 2.93GHz Mac Pro (2009)/4870/6GB RAM/2x Superdrives/Airport/1TB HDD for 2100.00 all factory refurbed and warranted with apple care I got for like 150.00 from somewhere else. Apple wants 2799.00 for the same refurbed unit.
