    If you don't put your location in your personal info and the currency in the message, what chance do we have?

    It's not a terrific saving (same price as new 2.1GHz MB but with bigger hard drive.) If you could live with 'old' (6 month) technology then I suppose it's OK.

    Not sure if the one you are talking about is white or not, but you can get a refurb blackbook (2.2) for $1049 off Apple.

    That price is not bad, but I think you can do better. For example, here is a refurb [White] MacBook for $999. It has a smaller HDD though... :)

    what is your opinion on refurbished macbooks? will they fail or have a greater chance of failing in the long run? How is the condition if I bought one, any scratches or fading of the color on the keys etc vs buying a new or used one. thanks

    Could somebody confirm, but are some of these 'refurbished' MacBooks not brand new excess old stock (i.e. Merom)?

    good find yeah not bad. It comes out pretty close in price though after taxes. Roughly 70-80 dollars for tax so 1080 at most. 20 bucks for 40gigs more and brand new is worth it. Also how do I go about to register the computer since I am buying from another guy. Do I only need the serial code to register for the 1 yr warranty via Apple?
