Has anybody managed to get a BTO on a refurb?

Hi I just ordered a refurb machine on the weekend. Just wondering has anyone ever tried to get a built to order option on a refurb? Is it possible?
Probably not but just asking.

there was one with an x1900xt a while back, and apple is known to sometimes ship refurbs with more RAM than advertised.

Yeah I ordered the base video card and then realized today that the DVI to video adapter doesn't work with that card (According to Apple). Kinda sucks.

I can live without it for now but It was a feature I was really looking forward to.
It's too bad you can't do that with the base card, I mean the imac can I think.

Well I guess I'll just have to wait for now and pony up more money to get the x1900.
I knew I should have bought it from the beginning, but everyone suggested no and I listened.

If I'm lucky there might be a better card in the pipe anyway that Apple may sell an upgrade kit for. Hopefully it won't cost an arm and a leg.

Yeah I think I did.

Applecare replacement was a refurb, I'm pretty sure. It had a 160GB hard drive though.
