    some macbooks dont state what will be included in the box.
    (the cheaper models)

    and others (more expensive ones) do say whats included,
    eg....leopard, and other software, install dvds, adapters etc.

    does this mean the cheaper macbooks which dont say anything, those DO NOT come with leopard dvds and adapters/battery etc??

    there were 2 identical black macbooks......but with £50 difference in price.
    and the only thing i could spot was that the more expensive one listed what was in the box (leopard and adapters etc)........and the cheaper priced macbook had no mention of this stuff.

    i was gonna buy the cheaper model........but was afraid of getting a macbook with nothing else. even leopard installed.......or any adapters etc.

    In a Hell predominately of my own making
    Refurbs from the Apple Store come with everything that you'd get with a new one.

    The difference in price could've been a different processor speed, memory, HDD, etc.

    no everything was exactly the same......i looked really carefully.....
    the only difference was one said leopard dvds etc included, and one
    said nothing.

    2.14ghz model.

    i just gave up and went for the 2.4ghz model. just to be on the safe side + top specs.
