    Do they price based on unit condition?

    There are often several machines with the same specs but prices varying 50-100 dollars.

    No all the units are the same in quality.

    Each Apple Certified Refurbished Product:
    is fully tested (including full burn-in testing).
    is refurbished with replacement parts for any defective modules identified in testing.
    is put through a thorough cleaning process and inspection.
    is repackaged (including appropriate manuals, cables, new boxes, etc.).
    includes the operating software originally shipped with the unit and the custom software offered with that system. See each products "Learn More" for more details.
    is given a new refurbished part number and serial number.
    is placed into a Final QA inspection prior to being added to sellable refurbished stock.

    Some machines may look like they're the same specs but they're not. They're usually from different revisions or have slightly different CTO options.

    Thanks. Maybe someone was not adjusting prices right either. In this case it wasn't a revision difference because those particular specs were only available in the last revision. I noticed now the specs are listed as different for those models. I have seen models listed with the same specs with price differences several times. Maybe they use a template then change it.
