    Between a new MBP and a refurbished one, which will get to the US first?

    Also, do I get the free $100 printer as well?

    I wouldn't think there would be a difference. Pay for the extra shipping, and buy whatever one you want.

    You're going to have to ask Apple if you can get the $100 off the printer.

    Depends on which new and refurb MBP model you're looking at. New 15" MBP's currently will ship in 7-10 business days. Refurb MBP's will ship in either 1-3 or 3-5 business days, so :confused: But I say you'll get the refurb faster.

    Yes, as long as you remember to send in for the rebate.

    Thanks. Do they ship from the same place?
    My instinct tells me that they'd ship the new ones from China and refurbs from CA.

    I believe that's correct. If you need the MBP sooner, you can always walk into a physical Apple Store and just pick one up there.

    Haha, I am not that lazy. I've actually been calling my 2 apple stores daily that are a reasonable drive away and they've been out of the 15" matte MBPs for about 2 weeks.
