    Looks like Apple are in the process of updating the prices of the refurbished rMBPs to reflect yesterday's cut in price (at least on the UK website). Only £40 off the entry level 15 inch so it's hardly a bargain!

    I wonder if this will have an impact on the non retina machines too...

    EDIT: They are also adding more so that there is a greater selection of BTO machines.

    Yep, after the price change yesterday the refurbished 13" Retina 128GB was I think $1359 US, now it's only $1269. I'm very tempted at that price, I was planning on waiting for Haswell but that's a really good price.

    You're only looking at a $90 difference here.

    Do you guyes get charged sales tax on top of that price? $1269 works out as £819 but that machine is on the UK site for £1059 = 30% more! It wouldn't surprise me at all that we pay more here but 30%?!

    EDIT: All models seem to have huge markups. Sometimes over 40%!!

    Been eyeing up the ole 17" MBP refurbs, but still too $$ to adopt older tech. :(

    Those prices in the US are without any sales tax. UK prices have VAT included, which I think is about 20%.

    I've finally trumped for a refurb 13" now that's it £1059. That's too good a price to pass up, even in anticipation of Haswell chipsets in 4 or 5 months.

    Thought as much. Glad to know we're not paying THAT much more!
