    Just ordered this from Apple.com.

    Refurbished MacBook 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo - Black
    13.3-inch glossy widescreen display
    512MB memory
    80GB hard drive
    SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    Built-in iSight camera

    Price: $949.00


    Came out to about $987.91. I don't mind that it's a Core Duo; I'm typing on one right now and it's been wonderful to me. Now, though, I'm going to have 1.5 GB of RAM and (finally) a Superdrive... Sweeeeet.

    Best freaking deal ever, and I just sold my White CD MB for $850.00. Awesome. Check out Apple Store -> "Special Deals" -> "Refurbished Mac". It was JUST updated.

    No, actually this was the best deal ever, but yours is a close second. Congrats on the new black MacBook.

    Haha, DAMN you are all over the forums! But yeah, I actually read that post yesterday and totally forgot about it. I'll settle for second. :D

    And thanks. I've heard this Apple refurb stuff is pretty great.

    Yes, Apple refurbs are the deal of the century. My MBP (an older CD model) was $1424. I think it was 2499 new a year ago.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks! :D I plan to buy a 1G stick to even out the 1.25GB I've got right now on my White MB. It says it shipped today and should be here by Thursday. I'm so stoked.

    Funny thing, there were about 12 Macbooks on the refurb page at 2:30am this morning, and now there are 3, I believe. Dang, people.

    //Edit: I am selling that 80GB HD and replacing it with my own 160GB HD.

    Yeah I have a friend who looks for a Powermac there every single day. I'm actually glad he doesn't find one because I want him to wait for the update. But he wants it *now*. :D

    Isn't it fun to have everyone rag on your best...deal...ever?

    My Turn

    Craigslist,

    Macbook 2.16 Core 2 Duo, 1GB, 120 HDD New in Box 825 cash!!

    Got to do the opening, it's legit, registered with Apple, it goes nicely with my C2D 2.16 Imac and my white 80 GB ipod, the black 8GB iphone looks a little out of place.

    Craigslist is shady... You're quite the lucky one.
