    Yes, i just bought a refurbished 15" MacBook Pro i7, 4gb etc. and it is brilliant. Except the missing original Packaging i did not notice that it was an refurbished at all.
    So you can definitly go for an refurbished, if you cant wait for the refresh, like me.

    How are we supposed to know if it's a good choice? What do you use your computer for? If money is an issue and all you do is facebook, music, and Youtube, you should buy a Windows laptop.

    Actually he wanted to know if it's better buying a Refurbished MacBook Pro 13" instead of a normal MacBook, and i would say yes. I misunderstood your Question a bit, sry.
    On the MacBook Pro you have the aluminium Body and everything instead of a thicker plasticy ugly looking white MacBook.
    So if you want to have a 13" Mac Laptop, buy the refurbished MacBook Pro.

    Thats personal. opinion I've has a Alu MacBook, while macbook, black macbook, and 2 15in MacBook Pro's and I find the white MacBooks the best looking.

    Yes, unlike other companies Apple provides the same 1 year warranty on refurbs as their computers. I bought my first Apple laptop, 15 MBP as a refurb 9 months ago and haven't looked back.
