    current refurb discount is 16%. will there be a greater discount after they update them to SB cpu's, or will it likely stay around the same?

    please answer based on past apple history.

    The prices will definitely go down, usually the same day as the refreshed models are available. I frequent the refurbished pages a lot.

    Will the price of a refurbished MacBook Air go down after a newer, better, faster MacBook Air comes out thus causing the refurbished MacBook Air to become even older less desirable?

    I think so.

    I would check the clearence section maybe $50 more but it would be new just outdated I bet the base air will go down to $799 once SB comes out.

    Oh yeah? And what are you basing this smart a** comment on? After looking into it more, i found that last years imacs currently have a refurb discount of 15 percent. Regardless of the fact that there are newer, faster, better ones out. So tell me, all knowing "brand", how do you figure this?

    Im not saying there wont be a price drop. Im asking for an answer based on what apple has done previously. Your answer is based on nothing but "what makes sense" which apple seems to not go by.

    Guess i have to keep in mind that im posting in MR. Where the members know how many nose hairs steve has, and if you dont... Well your stupid.

    Like aery said, it will go down after the new SB Airs hit the refurb store, not after the initial release.

    +1 Pretty sure they adjust the entire line at once. Check the refurb store often, different configs show up and disappear faster...often in the same day.
