So recently, i purchased a MacBook Pro 2.2GHz Refurb off the apple site.

And, bless apple... it came with an extra gig of RAM! 3GB total! I was so surprised to find out, and i never thought it would happen! I had an iBook G4 which was succeeded by an alienware gaming laptop, but this is a great re-introduction to apple's Mac OSX.

Has anybody else had this kind of luck?:)

Not personally, but I have heard of people receiving free (and unexpected) upgrades on refurbs before.

Just curious, is is your MBP a Santa Rosa version?

I was lucky on my Power Mac G5. I got double the memory (from 512MB to 1GB) and a larger HDD (250GB instead of 160GB). A very happy refurb customer, indeed. :)

I've been lucky twice.

A powerbook (last gen) i had got a 100GB 7200 RPM free upgrade instead of the 80GB 5400 RPM listed

A BlackBook Core Duo came totally maxed out with 2GB of RAM and 120GB HDD instead of 1GB (2x 512MB) and 80GB respectively.

I love refurbs :p

I just wish my Macbook would come :(

I got a good price on a referb, but UPS has delivered it to someone else over 1 hours drive away. No idea who it is, just says a name and another city on the tracking info. Apple has been informed, and they said they would refund my money, but I want my MacBook !!! No others on the site at the moment. :mad:

Now as I had already purchased and received (today) 2 GB of ram from Crucial for the new toy Im a bit miffed. Anyone want some ram?
