    So, with the fiasco about 'elf and safety here in the UK, what IS the legal definition as far as sales go?

    Are Apple allowed to sell refurbs? ( they are not new so seems fair )

    SrcumpyMacs are selling them with the warranty, so I'm guesing that just new Pro's are off the menu?

    I ask all this as my fiancee is selling our Windows based gaming / server rig for a MP. We've found a few good deals, and I know Scrumpy have a good reputation, just wondered if anyone in the UK had seen a refurb on the Apple store site....None there now, and the option is greyed out.

    They disappeared from the reburb store some time ago. Scrumpy's seem good but a bit pricey. Your best bet is to find a used 4.1 or 5.1 machine and upgrade yourself.

    I agree that scumpy are a bit more than you could perhaps bag an ebay one for but (and these are the reasons I am saving for one of theirs):

    • They will sell you whatever spec you want (eg. I am going for a 3.2Ghz Quad 5.1 with 12GB Ram and no keyboard or mouse)
    • They refurb and fully test them
    • They give a 1 year warranty

    That's enough of a reason for me to be honest. I suppose it matters what budget/spec requirements you have.
