    I have noticed that for iMacs, MB's and MBP's, it takes about 6 to 8 weeks from release & shipping date on new models for refurbs to appear for sale. Will the Mac Pro's be available in a similar time frame?

    I'm torn between a new single quad or a refurb dual quad. I'd really rather go with the dual quad, but I'd like to save $300-400.

    Thanks!

    Depends on getting enough recertified units together that it makes sense to put them in the refurb store.

    Did you have problems with it or just decide that 8 was better than 4? :D

    I'm about to return my second 2.8 octo, so I'm doing my bit for the refurb boys!

    My Harpertown 8-Core was probably the first returned. Wish I could track it to see where it goes and if it will be the first refurb. lol. Doubtful, but fun to think about. lol

    First one had overheating power supply (unusual). Second one had many screen freezes requiring reboots (apparently common).
