    Is it just something on my computer, or has anyone else been seeing weird changes in the Apple refurbished store? Specifically in the mac pro area, it seems very... unstable. Every time I hit "refresh" on my browser I see a different lineup of refurbished mac pros. Usually the first and last are the same two mac pro models that no one is ever going to buy, but every time I hit refresh the one or two (or three!) in the middle change configurations, availability (some say "not in stock"), and estimated shipping times.

    I noticed this a few days ago for the first time, and I am still seeing it. Is anyone else experiencing this? I am coming up very close on the day I was planning to possibly buy a refurbed MP, but now it's doing this every time I go look.

    Update: Of course, just as I am about to post this, it has stopped happening. But it has happened for enough time recently that I am still curious to know if anyone else has noticed it.

    Maybe apple's finally got a more real-time stock system for the refurbs.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I don't know why I made such a big deal out of all this.

    It was just weird because the changes didn't seem to have any rhyme or reason, things were going from out of stock to 1-2 weeks to ships in 24 hours to off the page over and over again. Your hypothesis is enough for me. THANKS.
