Long time browser, first time poster. I tried searching as well, just couldn't come up with a solid answer. I'm looking at picking up a refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz because it's a steal of a deal. Anywho, I'm curious if the refurbished devices are as high quality as the new ones. I'm afraid of buying a problem laptop, which could happen with a new one as well. Just wondering everyone's thoughts. Thanks for any help you can provide.
