    Just curious if people ordering the base 15" retina macbook pros from the refurb store have been pleasantly surprised with more memory or a bigger ssd? I remember ordering a refurb imac and it came with twice the ram it said it would.

    I didn't order a base, but I got exactly what I paid for (2.6/16/512). I was slightly hoping for a bump from the mid2012 to the early2013, but whatevs. I did manage to get a Samsung LCD/SSD though.

    I haven't heard of such things happening and they would be less likely to happen with the rMBP because the RAM can't be upgraded and the SSD isn't a standard SSD so upgrading it is not as easy/inexpensive. More memory in an iMac is a totally different situation since it can be upgraded.

    Yeah, people have reported things like that on number of occasions. My own experience with 'lucky mistakes' from the refurb store is that they forgot to put a WiFi card into the iMac :D

    Show me evidence..

    If they don't post receipts and then their actual shipment - that means it is false fantasy.

    And they should bother to prove something just to please you? Right.

    I don't see any reason someone would lie about getting better components than they ordered. It would not be such a miracle if a refurb laptop was accidentally listed with wrong information. Humans make errors.

    It happens. It's just extremely less likely these days with the rMBP.
