I really like this. MacRumors has a few posts that are very helpful when people ask me for help picking out a Mac. I suspect this will be one of them. I would like to see an update that adds when not to buy refurbished. For example, if the option is available for Black Friday sales or Educational Discounts. Also, how can a consumer compare the natural depreciation of an older model to the discount being applied. In some cases I have seen refurbished hardware that is less than the original cost, but more costly than the new offering.
