    They used to sell that. It's essentially the high end white MB before the last speed bump (which is why it has a superdrive and 2.0). You can often get pretty good deals on refurbs if they are not current configurations.

    I don't know why that would make it a scam though?!?!? Are you worried about it showing up with a ComboDrive?

    Sorry, I removed "scam" from the title..

    I just thought there could be some details which Apple isn't telling me... I guess I'm just paranoid.

    Thank you for your explanation. I'm going to buy this. Hope it's in good condition... <_<

    They've always had earlier models in the refurb stores. They still had G4 laptops up to the start of this year.

    Usually the refurb store has previous models or models that are discontinued. So you are not being tricked.

    Ok thanks.

    I'm actually not buying this. But buying the brand new white 2.16GHz model with 120GB hdd.

    I get about £110 off thanks to HE discount, and there's only £44 difference between this and the refurb (80GB).
