    I'm having trouble deciding between getting a refurbished 17" MBP, clearance priced 15" MBP, or new iMac. Since there may be an update to the iMac in November, I'd like to wait until then to make a decision. The unknown variable in this plan is how long the more recent refurbished and clearance items will remain in the Apple online store.

    Does anyone have a good idea about whether or not I can expect the previously mentioned items to stick around in stock for the next month or two?

    Does anyone have an idea of the turnover with these?

    Popular items can clear out in hours. Unpopular items can hang around for days or weeks. I would have thought that the 17" MBP is probably fairly popular.

    Except it costs more and this is not a good economy.

    And people are waiting to see the updated 17".
