    I'm just wondering if anyone know when Apple's refurb page will begin listing MacBooks with the updated specs from their refresh earlier this month?

    I'm in no real rush so I'm hoping to wait it out so that I can get the newer model. But I don't want to wait forever...

    Not until people start returning them, Apple has had a chance to QA them, repackage them, price them, ship them to the appropriate warehouse, and post them. I've probably missed a number of steps.

    In other words, be patient. It took a little while for the aluminium iMacs, SR MBPs, etc. to show up too.

    Well, I am contributing to the cause just returned my 2.2 GHz SR MacBook after the Hard drive failed, so as long as they throw in a new hard drive, they will be able to sell it. I am sure that this is one of their main ways of getting more computers to sell as refurbed, just fix/replace the broken part.

    I wonder if they sell all their old stock first? Or will they just sell older and new MacBooks with their respective prices adjusted?

    Apple lowered the prices for the refurbished non-SR Macbooks by $100 recently after the SR Macbooks were introduced.
