I've bought an Argos-Refurbished 13 MBP - it's advertised as 2.4GHz i5, 500Gb drive - so the late 2011 model. The sticker on the bottom box, states the serial, MBP 13.3/2.4/2x2GB/500/SD/GLSY, so matches what I'd expect from it. Turned on the laptop - got the intro to Snow Leopard... Ok I thought - maybe they've used an old restore disc and got lucky it actually works So first thing I check is system info - it's a 2.3Ghz i5, and 320Gb HDD - clearly an early 2011! The sticker on the top of the box shows the Early 2011 specs. Checked the serial number on the MBP - it matches the one on the sticker on the box Double checking the serial number on Apples website also reconfirms that it is an Early 2011 model. I've rung Apple support, but all they suggest is to take it back to Argos. I got what I thought was a fairly good deal (£750) and it's a mighty upgrade from my current Macbook. I've attached a photo of the box sticker - It looks like a standard Apple sticker to me, but could someone confirm? ***UPDATE*** The photo attached - that label is NOT one provided by Apple, despite all the Apple address being supplied etc.
