    So I was on the apple site and they have 2 airs with the HD option

    1) $999.00
    Refurbished MacBook Air 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    13.3-inch glossy widescreen display
    2GB memory
    80GB 4200-rpm PATA hard drive
    Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
    Built-in iSight Camera

    2) 1,399.00
    Refurbished MacBook Air 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    13.3-inch glossy widescreen display
    2GB memory
    80GB 4200-rpm PATA hard drive
    Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
    Built-in iSight Camera

    The only dif I see is the processor, and that can't be worth 400bux??? Am I missing something or is apple crazy?

    Has to be a typo as the SSD model is even cheaper:


    Refurbished MacBook Air 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    13.3-inch glossy widescreen display
    2GB memory
    64GB solid-state drive
    Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
    Built-in iSight Camera $1,299.00

    My guess is that $1,399 is not really a refurb but a brand new MBA on clearance.

    Was it in the Reburbished section or the Clearance section?

    It's under refurb. I noticed this too. I thought maybe just because they had less of them. I wasn't sure.

    I was told the refurbished models won't have new batteries. So the battery you may get would be less than what you would get in another computer. It was 1299 for a new 1.6/80 gig. Thinking about it but decided not to.
