    Can anyone tell me their experiences buying refurbished items from the apple store?

    I'm thinking of either buying a macbook or MBP --> I've already ordered a Mac Pro, and am looking for a laptop as well --

    The bleeding edge pays the most and suffers the most.

    2 weeks ago I bought a MBP 15 2.1 for $1600 from Apple's refurb page.
    A. As a late 2006 model the bugs were fixed and tested.
    B. 10.4.8 is stable; don't upgrade unless you need the fix is the tried
    and true UNIX dogma.
    C. Good price and 1 year warranty.
    D. Yeah, I'll wait until 10.5.2
    E. My MBP has worked perfectly, even the Linksys wireless !!

    Buy , enjoy.

    Not a bad idea...

    What tends to be the quality of the refurbs from Apple?


    Also, anyone know when the new LED Pros will be put on the refurb page?

    I bought a refurbished iPod Mini. There was a blemish on the unit when I bought it.. can't beat the price though.

    Please for the love of god. Do a search! Same thread in the same day?... :::bangs head on wall::: and the same thing about 5 other times in the last few weeks.

    Long story short - YAY REFURBS> THEY ARE FINE> WOOOOO you just don't get a pretty new box.
