    Quick question-How long(on average) does it normally take for refurbished MacBook Pros to appear in the Apple Refurb Store after a refresh or update? Specifically I am referring to how long I will have to wait to get a low end 13" from the refurb store, that is if they ever get updated with Arrandale. :)

    To Clarify

    Oh, and to clarify, i want to know how long it will take the newly updated
    MacBook Pros to appear, not the old C2Ds at a lower price.

    3 months at least.

    I always just buy Apple products (and refer others to do the same) from an online place with better deals (often mail-in rebates as well) and no sales tax, like MacConnection. You get wha you want brand new for cheaper than a refurb, and yet get full support from an Apple store.

    If it takes three months for the new refurbs to appear, does anyone know how long it takes for the old MacbookPros to appear refurbished at a lower price?

    Assuming they don't sell out by then, probably in the time it takes any updated computer to enter the refurbished market; I'm pretty sure Apple will hold back the refurbished stock on newer models in order to sell older models first.
