    Anyone have an estimate on when and if the current 15" Core2 Duo MacBook Pros will drop to $1349 US? I've been looking at the refurbed MBPs for awhile and it doesn't seem like the prices are changing much....They are still selling the Rev A 15" core duos with 512 Ram for $1300 +.

    I admit that is a pretty good price point since RAM and HDs are upgradeable, but I really don't want to risk buying a Rev A. machine. Since we all assume that the MacBook Pros will be revised at WWDC, does anyone think there will be a significant price drop on the refurbished machines?

    The prices will drop when new models come out. That is how it goes historically anyway...

    i'm in the same boat. my guess is that the refurb prices will go down by only $50 unless the new MBP's offer a lot more.

    in any case I hope that a maxed out 2.33GHz refurb for $1949 is a better deal then a medium $1999 updated new MBP since i'm using it most of the time with a monitor as desktop replacement. in that case battery time and screen quality a secondary.

    but of course i hope for a larger price drop.

    On the PowerBooks & MacBook Pros, I think the $ difference between reburbs of different releases are more on par with $150 to $200 difference. Heck, I saw this morning that the previous version of the Black Book (2.0, 1GB, 120GB) is not 1049 where as the previous refurb price on this was 1299. So, my guess whenever the MBP's get rev'd, you'll see these prices:
    15" 2.16, 1GB, 120GB will refurb at $1349
    15" 2.33, 2GB, 120GB will refurb at $1799 or 1849.

    :D :apple: :D :apple: :D

    That's what I am waiting for!

    For $1349 I would snatch up a 15" 2.16 in a heart beat!
