    I've noticed that refurb white Macbooks go on sale around 1am for £529.99 in the UK Apple store. I can get student discount on a white Macbook and three year's Applecare for about £660.

    Do you think it's worth paying the premium for a new white Macbook, or will the refurb be a better deal? I've never seen a refurb, but I am worried about yellow cases where someone's wrist has rubbed against them. The specs are the same, although the refurb is a combo drive, not super.

    What would you do?

    I would definately go for the new one at that price, especially since it comes with three years of applecare.

    Go with the more expensive one because of the AppleCare.

    Hmm the refurb still gets a one year warranty. I may have to check it out tonight at 1.

    No doubt about it, get the new one with the Applecare. Great deal.
