    but will you get the same offers from these sites? or would you have to be subject to whatever offers they have

    Amazon is also good. Especially for international shipping.

    My friend, I am from Venezuela. The difference in pricing between a refurbish mac from apple and from some where else is minimal. You can get a brand new mac from some other store at the same price of the refurbish plus more ram and things like that.

    Quit wasting your time looking for refurbish specially is you are outside the US, shipping will be more expensive any way. There is not sense in saving $50 or even $100.

    Buy a new mac with added ram from some where else. It will be a better deal.
