    I know they replace the cosmetic parts but are they reliable?

    Yes as many threads about the same issue confirm this. They can even be considered more reliable, as they have gone through an extensive checkup.

    MRoogle is a good tool to search these fora for already existing threads about questions you have. It might be able to answer you quicker than waiting for an answer.

    My experience has been: absolutely.

    1 MB, 3 MBP's and they all were rock solid. The only place you take a small hit is in the battery - it usually had <10 cycles on it when I received them.

    Completely. They also come with full guarantee and you can extended this to 3 years with Applecare if you wish.

    Typing this in a 3-year old Black Macbook which I bought as a refurb. Used 10 hours a day every day for 3 years and not missed a beat. Buy right after an upgrade (like now if you are interested in a refurb air) and you will most probably get a brand new machine - Apple shift old model unsold stock through the refurb store at discount prices after an upgrade

    Also bought several refurb ipods which have all been unused and hence perfect.
