    This may be the first time I have ever considered buying the "outdated" MacBook Pro after the new ones have arrived. How much of a discount could I expect to get on one of the C2D 17" models at the Apple retail store? If I could save 200-300, I think I'd probably do it.

    Anyone have any first hand experience with this?

    Check the refurb store. You won't be able to buy "new" old models directly from Apple.

    I bought a 13" 2.26 refurb and love it. I'd recommend anyone look at refurbs first, if the specifications meet your requirements.

    Really? I swear I have seen people post where they went into the Apple retail store and were able to buy leftover MacBook Pro's at a discounted price after the newer models had been released. But then again maybe I am crazy...

    yeah it is true but I don't think there are many leftover in physical stores

    Oh sorry, for some reason I missed "retail store" :mad:

    You might be able to get them there, but I'd imagine you'd need to get one pretty fast before they ship them back. It might be worth calling. For a further discount you could inquire about buying a display model if you don't mind owning one that's been touched by a bunch of grubby hands :p

    Well luckily for me we've got about 5 different Apple retail stores around here in Dallas so I might be able to score one. But it all depends on how deep of a discount it is....

    I'll keep you guys informed.
