    - Intel Core i5 2.4 GHz processor
    - 8 GB of 1067 MHz DDR3 RAM

    The computer is still under it's 1 year warranty that expires Oct 21, 2011…AppleCare can still be purchased.

    That seems like a lot of battery cycles for a 2010 model. What would the equivalent model go for in the Apple refurb store? I'd take that price and reduce it by 20% to see how this used one compares.

    Yes its a fair price. As far as the battery cycles go it still is a pretty new battery.

    Canada, Eh?
    NO 181 cycles is not much. I bought my 2010 in Jan and it has 208 cycles.
