I had been wanting a black MB for a long time, but the prices were too high. When Apple released the new models last Tuesday, however, the refurb prices dropped dramatically on the 2.0/120GB C2D model from $1299 to just $1049, so I jumped on it. It arrived at work this morning, and you can't tell that it isn't new! I haven't done much with it now, since I'm at work, but the long weekend is coming, so I'll be playing with it for the next 3 days. I didn't really need the MB, since I have a perfectly acceptable iMac G5, but this will be used to replace it and I may sell the iMac. The MB unfortunately did not come with any extra RAM, so I may end up getting 2GB sometime down the line.
