    Hey guys. How often do they update the list of refurbished macbooks for sale? I'm sure this has been covered, but I did a search and couldn't find anything.

    They're updated all the time. It used to be that early Tuesday and Friday mornings (U.S. time) were the biggies, but I haven't watched enough lately to know if that is still the case.

    What are you on the lookout for?

    You just have to keep checking. This morning, no mini's. This evening, 4 different ones. Now, nothing...

    If only I had been in the market for one. :D

    Good luck!

    im looking for a macbook. i havent seen the regular white macbook there since i started checking a few days ago. only the aluminum macbook (not pro) for $899. i'm assuming the white one would be less than that.

    I think I have seen it as low as $799 or $849 depending on the model and extras.

    I agree- it seems to be more sporadic in recent times rather than a certain day/time.

    good luck!

    ...right now they have the Nvidia 9400m whitebook 2.13 Ghz in the refurb store for $749... and earlier today they had the Nvidia 9400m whitebook 2.0 Ghz for $699...

    I'd get the 2.0 and use the $50 saved toward RAM, HDD and apple care = most would upgrade those in the 2.13 model anyway and that CPU speed will go unnoticed for most...

    I've been looking for a new refurb mac too here's what I've noticed

    The refurb list updates every few hours - sometimes more or less. I got a widget that automatically refreshes the refurb store whenever new updates happen. http://www.refurb.me/widget.php

    Anyways, the white macbooks with 9400 nvidea I have seen for ~$750.
    Macbook aluminum for $900
    Macbook pro 13' (basic 2 RAM 160HD) $999
    Macbook pro 13' (faster CPU 4RAM 320HD) $1299 (not worth it IMO).

    What I was interested in was the last summer's 15' MBP, with discrete 9600 nvidea might I add, for $1299. Only comes with 2RAM (easy upgrade to 4) but other than that I thought it was a great buy, but I missed it :(

    Is this the widget with the affiliate links that pays the dev 2% of every sale made by clicking through the widget?
