    are they taking advantage of christmas sales or is it just a mistake? refurb prices just went up by £80 for the low end whitebook, £60 for the 2.4 white macbook and about £115 for the blackbook. anyone considering the previous models, it's now cheaper to buy new from cancom.

    I imagine they're trying to claw back some of the money they're losing on the sale of new models because of the extreme drop in the value of the pound.

    On Oct. 1, €1 =£.77, today €1 = £.93.

    I could save €457 on iMac 3.06 by nipping up to the Belfast store rather than ordering online from the Irish store.
