Just got my 15" referb 1.33 powerbook. I ordered a 15" w/ combo drive and 60gb hdd for 1499 from apple. Instead apple sent me a 15" w/ superdrive and 80gb hdd w/ the fancy glowing keyboard. Needless to say I am a VERY satisfied customer. My partner said apple may ask for it back.
Also if I get applecare does it cover the hardware I have or the hardware on the order?
Every thing works great- bumped the memory up to 1.25gb with a $155 1 gb chip and ran the hardware test 3 times. Love the new powerbook (new to me).

I've never bought a refurb, but from reading the forums I've read several instances when people get "bumped up" to a superdrive, or hard drive, or whatever. You're just one of the lucky ones!

Nice!

Isn't the back lit keyboard a sweet option! Just got a new 15" powerbook from the apple store. heck if I had your kind of luck I might of opted for a refurbished model. Enjoy, and as far as Apple goes, no worries...I think Steve Jobs can spare an upgrade every now and then :rolleyes:

Consider yourself one of the few lucky ones. Apple rarely screws up like this. They aren't going to ask for it back. You made out like a bandit, nice job!

Apple won't ask for the powerbook back nor did they make a mistake. That's the good thing about refurbs - they consist of (sometimes) previously built to order machines that were sent back. Apple leaves the upgrades in.

I just ordered a refurb dual 2.5 and not only did it arrive with a gig of ram but also a 250gb hard drive.

And I haven't had one problem with it - just simply an amazing machine and an amazing deal!

enjoy!

Thanks for the replies. Anyone know if applecare would cover what the machine has in it like the superdrive? Really enjoying my new mac.

Getting more than you pay for isn't a problem, getting less is...

Usually the refurbs are listed with the minimum specs for a load of machines.

Some people will get exactly what they pay for, some will get upgraded machines, while some will even get speed bumped or newer machines if they run short.
