    Hello there!
    I love reading your forum threads! So I couldn't wait to tell you, that
    a guy fyrefly has found some placeholder pages in the Apple's Refurb Pages in Canada.

    13" 2.4Ghz Core2Duo Nvidia 320M - $1099 ($1249 New)
    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Apple Store (Canada)

    13" 2.66Ghz Core2Duo Nvidia 320M - $1349 ($1549 New)
    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Apple Store (Canada)

    15" i5 2.4Ghz - $1599 ($1849 new)
    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 - Apple Store (Canada)

    15" i5 2.53Ghz - $1779 ($2049 new)
    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.53GHz Intel Core i5 - Apple Store (Canada)

    15" i7 2.66Ghz - $1949 ($2249 new)
    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 - Apple Store (Canada)

    17" i5 2.53Ghz - $2049 ($2349 New)
    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.53GHz Intel Core i5 - Apple Store (Canada)

    That would mean about 12-13% off! :D
    Unfortunately they are still placeholder pages so the prices might change! Would really like to know what the prices are in other countries!
    Tried to rework that find for placeholder pages on different refurb pages in different countries! They seemed not to be put up yet. :(
    Because you can even google those canadian refurb pages!
    Can't wait!

    Joy, Ultraelektro

    What do you think of those prices? Are they good? I've never purchased a refurb. in the past.

    The prices are pretty good, although if you are a student I would probably go for brand new with all the student deals instead. And with refurbs it's hard to find customized models, as those are the ones that usually go quickest.

    Basically saving the tax.

    I'm more apt to buy a desktop from the refurb store...I guess I don't like the idea of excessive man-handling on the notebooks.

    Not bad I guess, but like others have said, students are still better to go with the student pricing. Heck, if your school has deeper discounts, you'll pay less than that anyway. My 2.4 13" cost me $1030 cdn with discount.

    Where do you go to Uni? The best price I can get is $1149 for the 2.4 13" at the Dal computer store out east.

    Nipissing, the teacher education program gets an extra % discount beyond the student price.
