I am debating on getting either a refurbished Macbook aluminum 2.4GHz or a brand new Macbook aluminum 2.0. I would really like to have the illuminated keyboard (not a necessity, but I think it would be practical and if during the next refresh they add the illuminated keyboard to the 2.0 and I have the one without it, I'd regret not getting the 2.4). The thing is, if I'm buying a notebook that costs this much, I want it to be perfect (no cosmetic defects like scratches, misaligned keys...). Basically, I really want the 2.4, but I'd rather buy the 2.0 if the 2.4 refurbished will have cosmetic flaws. I guess my question is, are refurbished Apple Macbooks basically new? Do they replace the keyboard, trackpad and body if there are any signs of use? What do you guys think I should get? I live in Canada, so the difference in price between the two is about $200CAN (about $160US).
