Ordered a refurb unibody MBP (2.4GHz) from Apple.com for $1699. It's arriving this Friday; perfect for the weekend. First time ordering a refurb from Apple so I am hoping this transaction will go smoothly (i.e. computer in good condition). From what I read Apple's reconditioning of the system is excellent and I get the year warranty. Plus the $300 savings and free shipping ultimately won me over. I'll repost Friday night after receiving it.
