Awesome deal, I think:
Wow, I was just noticing that myself.
I don't think so...
Not a good deal to me. Use an education discount and for $200 more you can get the new macbook - no refurb.
My first thought was good deal, however Richard makes a good point. If you have an education discount, $899 gets you a really nice, brand new MacBook. If I was replacing my MacBook, I would pick up the new one.
Good luck finding one in stock.
i'd rather save the $200 and have the firewire. refurb or not, it's still under warranty for a year so that's inconsequential.
Why does this post not surprise me...
They were in stock most of the day yesterday. My brother got one, my sister got one and they were still in stock. I think they're good deal. I actually do use Firewire with my Sony PC-1000 camcorder (which I have no plans to replace, even if I did I would replace it with another FW camcorder). I use my iMac for most of my FW needs, but Macbook get's often use of FW too.
If that meets your needs, I think it is an EXCELLENT buy.
the education discount is $50.00 for the macbook, $100 for the MBP's
I didn't not know this.
Still, it's a $250 difference. Personally, I might be tempted to go with the new macbook though. Tough call, because one could get Applecare for this amount with the refurb.
Awesome deal! I paid $750 for the same unit only 2 weeks ago, but I'm still happy! Unit I received looked like new, great screen too!
It might've changed, otherwise you're wrong. I bought my MacBook last year and the education discount saved me $100.
Very tempting, unluckily, out of stock.
It has changed and now it's only $50. When I got my Alu Macbook last October is about when it changed. The Apple sales guy told me and I just checked now on-line and it's $50
Just bought it!
I recently bought a BlackBook (2.0 CD) on these forums because I wanted a cheap MacBook for hauling around with me everywhere. Unfortunately within a few days after I bought it the battery crapped out completely. So I was faced with buying a new battery or just selling it. I opted to sell it because Apple had just replaced the topcase for the crack issue and it looked brand new. Well on eBay it fetched $725. Awesome. So I figured I can just use the money from the sale and buy this one.
Can't wait till it gets here this one should run wayyy better than the CD BlackBook I had. The fan on that computer would come on really loud for almost anything I did. I don't think that will be a problem on this refurb.
Wow, people really will pay a lot for these blackbooks. Nice catch
awesome but still would by the new uni white, the screen is much better.
Because Apple is crazy about the upsell.
I got my MacBook the day after I ordered it! Love it.
It's nice and quiet thanks to the 9400m and I take it with me everywhere now.
