I thought it was a good deal for 1269+, but it had a small dent under the apple logo that is very noticeable once you see it. My option is to exchange it or full refund. I'm thinking of just getting a brand new one cause I don't want exchange another one if the replacement is also dented since school starts in a week and am gonna need it. Is this why it is refurbished? Or was I just unlucky?

It is possible that there are slight blemishes on refurb models, but it's pretty rare. If I were you, I'd return it for another refurb. You'll likely get one that's in like-new condition.

They say on the refurb page that those machine may have some cosmetic defects... It's a refurb, not a brand new laptop.

I just did the math, the brand new one would be 1490 with tax, and I paid 1345 for the refurb, but the new one comes with a 100 GC, so the difference is 45 bucks. I think I'll just get the new one, thx for the input.
