Ugh! I wish there were still local stores like Best Buy selling it. I don't trust refurbished or buying online. I need to see it personally. The tiniest scratch or stain will irk me. Are there other stores like Best Buy that may have the MacBook?

Scratches and stains are not a problem for me, unless they're on the screen, of course. I think refurbs are the way to go if one is on a budget, and sometimes even if one is not.

When I went to the Apple Store this morning, genius there said they have the gen 1 in stock as new and are still selling the gen 1 at $200/$300 discount (don't remember which) .

Just an FYI, Best Buy is selling the first gen MacBook's again. They've got quite a few open box ones for very cheap as well.
