    I waited 1.5 years for the new Mini but I'm quite disappointed. I've decided to buy the middle option (MD388LL/A) of the 2012 Mini.

    Default CPU for this model is the Intel Core i7-3615QM 2.3 GHz chip, but I would buy the BTO upgrade option (Intel Core i7-3720QM 2.6 GHz) if it appeared in the refurb store.

    I'm wondering whether it is even possible to get the BTO version in the refurb store. If so, I will wait for it. If that's not possible, I will just get the default CPU.

    Anybody know whether it's even possible to find that unit (MD388LL/A Intel Core i7-3720QM 2.6 GHz) in the refurb store?

    Sure. You'll have to wait though until somebody returns one.

    The mini I purchased in July was a BTO optioned configuration, so they do show up sometimes. The 2.6 quad cores seemed to be more than $1000, if that makes any difference.

    Not sure if offered any more - refurb.me doesn't list it as one of the possible Mac Mini refurbs, although I'm unsure what data source they use. I believe it used to be listed.

    Also might check via https://refurb-tracker.com/en/ as it lists the option but I don't know if it's just that they've not updated since the announcements or what. Can't hurt to set up an alert.
