Okay so I didnt realize there was a refurb section on apple until I read a thread in here. Anywho, I have a Macbook (white, late 2007 I believe.) It fell and broke, and I remember posting a thread to see if anyone had similar breakage to see if how much they were charged to fix but got no answer. I loved it when it worked. It is the 13 inch and it was the higher priced one with no additional add ons. So I'm here like, should I fix it, or get a new comp. The computer part of it is working, its just the screen does not show. The part where it ajoins is broken, wires were pinched/exposed/damaged so the screen is useless. I found Dr Brendan in park slope that fixes Mac's, but have yet to make it to him for a free assessment. So all history aside I said well instead of putting in $500 (I'm guesstimating) to fix it, let me get a new one. I will in the future fix it . So my question is, has anyone bought a refurbished Mac? Does it look brand new, no scuffs etc? I too am trying decide between a MBA, and a MBP. Last time I was at the Mac store I was like "Oooo, pretty," referencing the MBA. The thing I didnt like was the lack of dvd drive, but I feel like I can just buy the dvd part seperately. So, my Macbook was fine, performance wise. I mainly use my computer for emails, skype, play music at the loudest to jam instead of using the radio watching youtube vids on occassion, tinychat (for using ASL) and thats it. I rarely watch DVD movies, or play CD's. Do they sell the refurbished ones that you see online at the store is it online only? I will be going to the store in a few days to get a feel for the size difference, but dont want to be in there forever trying to decide while I can do it at home first. I love small so it will be between an 11 inch/13 inch MBA or 13 MBP. Theres a 11 inch October 2010 Air for 899, 2 gb, 128 1.4 ghz, 13 inch Oct 2010 for 949 2 gb, 128 GB, 1.8 Ghz and then theres a 13 inch Pro for 929 Feb 2011, 4gb, 320 GB, 2.3 GHZ all refurbs. Which is a good deal compared to brand new and current? Theres also some 09's on there for about $100 less with the same specs as the 13 inch air. Is there a difference between the 2009, 2010, 2011 models? Besides the OS of course which I can buy for 30 dollars. Compared to my (I removed the battery and found this on the back) 2.2/2X1G/120 Which would give the same or better performance? When do new MBA/MBP and Ipads come out? As far as the Ipad 2, I kind of figured I would need to buy a keyboard, and it might not be as fast, or have the same amount of applications as a comp would. Thanks a bunch. * I just realized they sold the white Macbooks up until 2010, so what exactly is the difference between that and pro?
