Long time lurker, first time poster: I had a unibody MB 2.4 and it was way to much overkill for my laptop needs. Decided to get rid of it and go with a MBA and 24" iMac combo for my computing needs. I wanted a MBA in the first place. I am in the market for a MBA and prefer to get the Rev A, 1.6/HDD. Anyways, my local Best Buy has an open box that has been there for a couple months and has been marked down a few times and now sits at $950. Granted I will pay taxes, but I can walk out with MBA in hand instead of waiting for shipping and have the ease of Best Buy's 30 day return policy and their rewards program. I am curious if you guys think as far as long term reliability is concerned if it would be better to get the $999 refurb from Apple. I understand Apple did some minor changes half way through Rev A to make it more stable and in line with the refurbs. Is there anyway I can tell if the Best Buy one would have these minor upgrades by looking at the box? I assume I would get a full year of warranty, though who knows what was done to it before it was returned. Just looking for your opinions. Thanks.
