    How long do you think it will be before the new mini's are in the refurb store? I live in canada and they currently start at 739$ (I dont exactly remember). Before on the older base model mini there were savings of $160 CDN. How much do you think the price of the new mini refurb will drop, and how long does it typically take for items to be available in the refurb store? Thanks.

    Yeah, it'll definitely be a while. At least a few months. It tends to coincide with how quickly they get out, the closeout stock, how many are returned, how many last-gens are still in the refurb store, etc. The MBA's and LED ACD's still aren't in the refurb store, and they were announced in November...

    2-3 months seems to be par for the course. Two months is pretty lucky, three is more reasonable. If you don't have a pressing need, every little bit of savings helps.
