    I just bought the exact same spec refurb Mac Pro from the UK store and it came to £1202, which works out as $1763.

    No idea why it would be cheaper over here, it's normally the opposite, especially with our economy being in the *******.

    Great deal and with a decent 24" you've just surpassed the iMac with far better expansion.

    Perhaps this is why. :p

    Seriously though, the UK may have more stock on hand than the US, and they need to unload it quickly. So they're offering them up at a steal. :)

    I just got my new Mac Pro refurb yesterday and it is indeed as new as it could be.

    I got the 8-Core version for only $2400, such an amazing deal.

    I just bought the same computer, it arrives tomorrow I can't wait. Now I'm gonna sell my 17"mbp for something a little more portable.

    I keep checking for the Mac pro for like a week, right when I saw it I bought it.

    Good luck!

    If you check every day you should get one within two weeks.

    Yeah, I thought about that. I think I'm gonna go with a refurbished macbook, I still need some power to work on photoshop, Illustrator, and such when I'm not home but don't quite need the power of the MBP.

    I would like a macbook air if it would do what I needed. I like the size.

    I got the Quad Mac Pro for $1,999.00 and am loving it so far. Got free bluetooth on the refurb. :)

    uummm......newbie FYI.......not sure, but if I had to guess, I doubt that Mr. Jobs would take kindly to your using his email address as your member name :eek:

    btw, he does read or have someone @apple watch these forums from time to time.........

    God I hate you.
    We don't even HAVE a refurb section in the Swedish Apple Store.

    Even worse is how Apple are proud about the "Shop for anyone in Europe!" thing.
    It's the same thing as just going to the Apple Store for a country -- in other words, I can't buy something from the Apple UK store and have it shipped to Sweden :-(

    I am sure that you got rights to use the likeness and trademarked "Smurf" as your forum identifier.

    If Mr. Jobs has an issue with this and lets me know I will gladly change it. Just in case you did not know it was a play on words as this is an apple based forum, and well Mr. Jobs IS apple. Send him an email using this address, if he answers, tell him that I do not take kindly to to others using my name as their email address as I could not use it when I signed up for Mobile Me. ;)

    I have a white macbook also, although its a faster CPU I use the MBA because the display is amazing with more accurate color detail. It has every app loaded that my MP uses.

    Darn! Great deal!

    I got my MP for $1999 as well (specs in signature). But really, even if I did get this one, I don't even know what I would do with 8 cores. Even with all the HD encoding that I do. :p
