    It's not quite shit, often times it was never used, just open box, thus legally not new.

    And, as in this case, some people get hooked up with custom orders which were returned. So for hundreds less you get a nearly new Apple product, sometimes with extra ram or a higer vid card etc. WITH a full year of warranty.

    Shit, I think not.

    Yeah, I've heard of quite a few people getting more than what they paid for. My friend bought a refurb eMac awhile ago, and ended up with twice the RAM as well.

    I saved 1000 dollars on my Macbook Pro because it was a 2.16GHz Core Duo opposed to a Core 2 Duo (not to mention mine came with 256MB vram opposed to the Core 2 Duo which would have had 128MB).

    I bought a refurb blackbook about a month ago. So far, so good.

    :o

    Even then, it was worth the 1000 dollars I saved, like 150 of that will go to ram and I don't really need a bigger HD right now
