EDIT TO ADD Ok guys - under the circumstances I feel I should post a slight advisory in my intial post. It would appear that although the majority of people have received the brand new shop stock returned models I said they would, there have been a few instances where people have received refurbed Macbooks instead. So be aware when ordering that there is a slight risk you may not get a shop stock returned Macbook (not that is necessarily a bad thing though if you can live with the odd mark). Apologies Hi All Although I mainly use this forum to glean info rather than post, I thought I would share some knowledge that could benefit others. My girlfriend wanted an entry level Macbook, so naturally we decided to wait until the new MBs were released. Having been severely disappointed with the models/pricing here in the UK, I decided to try and track down what would happen to the £699 shop stock models that were sent back to Apple. I had read that they would be taken apart and used for parts, but a quick call to my contact at Apple and he confirmed that even though most of them would be taken apart, a small amount would be made available through the Refurb' store fully sealed and brand new as they were in the shops! He said they would start appearing today and would be scattered in at various times over the next 7-14 days, although he couldn't confirm the price. So, up nice and early this morning to watch the shop - I refreshed the screen a few times at the time I got told they would be appearing (10am) and bingo! Up they popped, 2.4 models for £659 (still there last time I looked) and 2.1 models for a brilliant £529!!!! I double checked the specs and sure enough it was a £699 model so I whacked it in the basket (with a few other things)... Result! Even when we had our order confirmed there was still some showing in the store up to an hour later, so I presume there were a couple of them available. So, for anybody who was hoping for a new entry level macbook at a decent price, who isn't to worried regarding the LED and multi-touch blah blah, keep an eye on the refurb store at 10am each morning, for the next week or so.
