    Hey guys,

    So I bought my refurbished MacBook Air a couple weeks before they dropped the price. Anyone know if Apple will spot me the difference if I ask? I'm not too worried about it, because it's only $20, but if they have a history of doing this, it'd be worth a shot. Seems to me they've done it with new models, but I hadn't heard anything on the refurbs.

    probably not i would say. it's only $20 like you said, nothing to really fret over, you still got a deal in the first place.

    Thanks macking! I'll look into it, but I'm pretty sure it was within 15 days that they dropped the price. Again, $20 isn't a big deal, it was still better than paying $150 more for brand new. But what the heck, right?
