In Canadian dollars: Education discount: $1679 for imac. I sell the ipod touch for, say, $250. That gets me to $1429 (not including taxes). Refurb: $1529 (same specs). Pros of education discount: cheaper at the end (after mail-in-rebate). Cons of education discount: extra hassle. Pros of refurb: some people say that because of the refurb quality control, it might have a better quality over a brand new computer Con of refurb: more expensive. What to do, what to do... Any thoughts?
