Hi everyone. Long time lurker but first time poster here. I'm strongly considering purchasing an 11" MBA (4gb/64gb) to replace my 5 year old piece of junk Compaq notebook. I've been searching around for the best price on the model specified above and found buying a refurbished MBA would be the most affordable option. That said, once I factor in sales tax, the refurbished MBA (~$995 after sales tax, free shipping, and 1% online rebate) is only about $40 cheaper than a brand new MBA with the exact same specs (~$1,037 after sales tax, free shipping, and 3% online rebate). So, which option would you take? and why? thanks!
