    659 + 129 + 80 = $868

    Just got wife a refurb blackbook 2.16 C2D, 160gb hdd, 1gb ram for $999. Also have seen another blackbook refurb, think it was a 2ghz with an 80gb hdd, for $899 on occasion.

    Personally, wouldnt buy a machine off the rack like that. I was at compusa here when they were going OOB and there is no way in hell Id have bought one of those computers.

    Id def try to get something from the refurb apple store.

    ^^^

    Earlier today I thought I saw an older basic white one go for $799...

    Plus, these all come with Leopard (dropped in for the older ones).

    Talk about a great deal - didn't last long...
