Up until now, I've always eschewed refurbished products when it comes to computers, it's components, and basically anything where semi-conductors are involved. The premise being that refurbished products were problematic in some way whereby they were returned. All things being equal, once chips (RAM, cpu, gnu and motherboards) burn in and run properly, it is unlikely any will fail; hence, refurbs were returned products where one of the afore mentioned main components were defective (bad chips which made it pass the throughput quality control process), which is why I've never purchased used or refurbed computers and/or components. I've seen some recently good deals on Apple refurbs. Just wondering on some of the generally accepted pros and cons with Apple refurbs?
