I thought refurbs are supposed to be cheaper?

    I found these benchmarks where it says the 15" 2.40GHz i5 MBP is faster than last year's 15" 3.06GHz MBP.

    But then why does a brand new 15" 2.40GHz i5 MBP with 4GB RAM and 320GB HD cost $1799, while a refurb 15" 3.06GHz MBP with 4GB RAM and 320GB HD at the Apple store costs $2019???

    Because speed is not the only factor and it is Apple.
    They still sold 15" MBP (non Unibodies) in 2009 for high prices.
