    yeah... I think that's where i'll be ordering mine. Refurbs seem cheaper, but are they really THAT MUCH cheaper, after tax and/or shipping?

    Wow, that was fast! Looks like the 2.0 is gone but the 2.4 is still there.

    I have the refurb store set as my homepage because I was gonna buy one, and I can tell you that they were put up no earlier than an hour or two ago because I checked. Wonder how many they had...

    Shipping is free. And it's $200 cheaper than in the store. So you're saving $200 (or $150 if you're a student).

    Positives: You're ensuring that you have a good MacBook with no slanted keys or loose battery cover. 1 year Applecare.

    Negatives: It comes in a brown box.

    Nope, you're saving $53. Amazon has it for $1,229.99 with FREE with Super Saver Shipping.

    Oh, he meant refurb vs Amazon, I see.

    I thought he meant refurb vs buying new from Apple.

    Wait, aren't you saving $130, because both Apple and Amazon charge taxes...
