    You can't look at refurbished units and their prices as anything. The prices vary on any given day and are not an indication of anything.

    Strange, I've been following the refurb prices for a while, and it's been at $1,019 for at least 3-4 months. Just thought it was strange it randomly dropped $20.

    You should really take a look around before you post something. No sense in making more than one post when you can just add your input to another post about the same thing.

    Sorry my bad. I check this forum once a day and I must have missed that other thread.

    I noticed some other drops as well, which prompted me to cancel my order for a new decked out 15" MBP to wait and see what prices the old ones will be at once the new ones are unveiled.. Might pick up a Mac mini with my Apple gift cards instead though.

    Some people are too testy.

    It was a one-off thread. Very easy to miss.

    Its not like you asked when the new MBP are arriviing.

    So did I. I had been waiting to get one till I had enough money and was going to use the developer discount that my company had. But apple did away with that and the refurb that I purchased was exactly what I was going to get originally and at almost the exact same price as the developer discount. I could have sworn the exact setup was $200 more last time I checked.

    Saw it too, been looking at getting one for a while, so I finally pulled the trigger. It is due here later today, cannot wait, it will be nice to finally get rid of that old while Macbook.

    Got the refurb, and a nice present from apple

    Just to follow up on this thread, I got my laptop, everything looks perfect, it came in two days. To my surprise, Apple bumped my HD to 500gb, that was a pleasant surprise.

    The upgrade has happened in the past when buying a refurb. You never know what you get with these things. :D

    Good News

    Yes I saw that it happened ~3 weeks ago, don't know if its just something apple is doing or if it means something. Though I dont think apple would do it just for fun.
