It is the new 2.2ghz mid range white macbook. The difference in price between the new and refurbished is 130 pounds ($260). and I'll have to wait 1-2 weeks for the refurb while I can go to the apple shop and buy a new one within the hour. I've heard great positive comments about refurbs from apple. The problem is that I am extremely fussy about my things. I can't have scratches or flaws on my stuff. I have a feeling that if I get the refurb every little problem I encounter will make me believe it was because it is a refurb and I'll regret my decision. Help me decide. as you can see the decision to be made isn't based purely on logic but also my obsessive compulsive tendencies. Thanks for reading.
