    Hi, im looking at buying the rMBP because they are going for £1059, I am wondering what will the battery cycle be like because i hear they are not easy to replace in the rMBP or will Apple have already changed it before selling it on? Also if they were sent back in because of faulty screens, im guessing that Apple would have replaced the screen to the non faulty ones (i hear its LG or something) before they put it back on market?

    So are they safe to buy?

    Refurbs are a safe bet because Apple does check them before sending them out. That means a new battery usually as well as a fixing whatever they returned it for. However, problems do arise, but you get a 14 day no questions asked return window.

    Ok that's reassuring, thanks. Guess its whether I have the guts to take the blow! I guess it is quite a good deal. I refuse to go for anything other than the retina now because I guess all will turn retina soon?

    Even if they do bring out a new line of MacBooks, it's still an excellent laptop.
