    As the topic saids i am thinking about getting a refrub MBP. I was just wondering what you think, is this a good or bad idea? Is there anything that i should know or watch for?

    Thanks in Advanced

    Refurbs are less likely to come with defects than new models are. The only difference you'll notice will be the box they ship in.

    I ordered one yesterday, and it's scheduled for delivery tommorrow! :)

    I've bought re-furbed Ipods that you can't tell from new, and from everything I've read the computers are the same. I have no qualms about my order.

    I bought a refurb'd iMac last spring, and love it. No problems at all. I don't know if I would ever buy a new mac product vs. refurb'd. You get the same thing, same warranty, less $$$. :D
