    What is the best place to find used or refurb Air rev A and B's? The Apple online store, obviously. I'm not fond of eBay and CL. Anywhere else I'm missing?

    I'd say CL is good if you're careful. You eventually may be able to buy here if you meet the posting guidelines for the marketplace. Therefore, if not Apple then yes, MacMall and maybe Amazon.

    Craigslist, getting to see a computer and play around with it seems invaluable. You could also try stores like Best Buy for their open box items as occasionally they carry an additional warranty.

    Where are the posting guidelines for the Marketplace? That would have been my first place to look.

    Yes. 250 posts and 6 months of membership I believe. It's in the FAQ.

    I picked mine up on ebay. I only paid a little over $600 for a rev b that had a few scratches on the lid. I guess after I added in the superdrive, snow leopard, and power supply, I'm a little under $800. Still not bad though. BTW, like all of my boats that I have ever owned, it is and will forever be forsale :)

    $600 for a rev. B? That's insane even if it doesn't have the AC adapter.

    @bmstrong: I was in your position a couple weeks ago until I found a ridiculous deal on the NYC CL - $875 for Rev.B 1.6 HDD w/ box, receipt, 9 months of AppleCare, plus I got to meet a very interesting individual. Long story made short, if you keep looking on CL, you might find something amazing.

    You may also want to try PowerMax and Mac-of-All Trades. Good luck in your search!

    What's the easiest way to tell the B and C apart? I've found a bunch of A's but I just don't feel that they are worth it unless I find one extremely cheap...

    Processor speed and hard drive capacity. Rev B were 1.6GHz with 120GB HDD for the low end and 1.86GHz with 128GB SSD for the high end. Rev C are 1.86GHz with 120GB HDD for the low end and 2.13GHz with 128GB SSD for the high end.
