    With all the rMBP's being returned, how come there are no late 2013 rMBP's on the Apple Refurbished website? I'm not inferring there are tens of thousands, but from reading here there are at least quite a few, and they must be somewhere!

    When do you guys think they will start selling them?

    I'm hoping to get a better deal than the $200 off for the Employee Purchase Program.

    Thank you

    because 'here' is not any indicator of what you've asked. 'Here' is at it's best a bunch of whiners and at worst a horde of people with ocd and more money than sense.

    5 months? What the heck takes so long?

    Refurbishing parts, not cannibalizing your profits

    There must be some returns, but as a guess, they might want to avoid devaluing a newly released laptop, so delay releasing refurbished computers for a few months.

    4 to 6 months average.

    Even if they had loads of units ready to be sold as refurb, it would be not profitable to do so before then.
