Is $929 considered a truly good price for an early 2011 13" MBP 4/320 configuration? That is only $170 off from original $1099 price, and for a year old refurbished model. Any reason to get a late 2011 or wait for 2012 update?...Trying to stay at/under $1k...

Thanks

Did you go thru Apple store? Guess if you got 13" 2.7 ghz, it was different configuration and price?

my 2.7 I7 was 1189$ which would have come to around the same price after tax if i went in to the store and bought a brand 2.4 I5 model.

and yes i went through the apple store.

I just bought an early 2011 13" MBP on clearance at best buy, but was the i7 model for 1199$ new, untouched in all its glory...

I used to have a early 2011 15" MBP quad core... But left my job and had to turn that one in... I do like the portability that the 13" offers.

Good luck with yours!
