I've never had a Mac, let alone a refurbished one. But after 2+ years of drooling over various friends' MBPs and now MBAs, I've decided to buy one for myself. Now I'm just debating what to get. I know that I want the 11-inch MBA. I can get the base model (64 gig HD, 2 gig RAM) for $949 with the education discount. I can get that for a hundred bucks cheaper refurbished, or get a better model for similar to that of a new base model. I've never bought a refurb, so I'm a bit wary of spending that much money on a used computer. What are your experiences with refurbished computers?
