You could always beam on over captain. Wink

Count me in the crowd of wanting a refurb after Snow Leopard comes out.

LOL! I'm still happy with my "old" Intel mini, it still doesn't feel inadequate. I don't count out a 'real computer' in the future though. Like a (smaller) PC with the Efix stick, because of easy upgradebility and less cable- and other stuff on my desktop! BTW: installed at friends 2 PC's with latest Ubuntu and am really amazed how easy it is getting! Still not OSX but very usable, just like the Eeebuntu on my Eee 901 netbook! Razz

So, my 2.0 shipped today...from Middletown, PA. Has anyone elses shipped yet? If so, where from? This is the first time I've seen a refurb not ship from NorCal.

I didn't even know Apple had a presence in PA. I always thought that Apple was in California - Cupertino and Elk Grove (and Fremont in the 1980s), Texas - Austin, Ireland - Cork, and Singapore. There's also a call center in Canada and one in India (Bangalore, I believe). I've also received shipments directly from the various factories in China.

PA is a new one to me.

I'm like 99.9 percent sure my refurbished 802.11n AirPort Express shipped out from PA a couple months ago. Maybe it's a new location or depot for refurbished products on the east coast. If they are sold out here, they get filled from over there.

They have a warehouse there. What is shipped from there seems inconsistent. Maybe that is their 'back up' warehouse or something. Apple is in more locations than that, but you're right, those are/were some of their main locations. I drive by that old Mac plant here in Fremont almost everyday. I can still see the Apple touches in that building almost 20 years later.

My orders coming to Virginia have always come from either China, California or Pennsylvania.

Received today in a cute little white box that doesn't have an Apple on it - surprisingly. Hes now sporting a 320GB WD drive and 4GB Ram - all for about $580. Not a bad deal at all me thinks. Cool

<envy>Me either</envy> Smile

I want one really bad, but I'll probably wait around for Snow Leopard. My Mac mini doesn't feel terribly underpowered at this point. It's also stable as a rock. Short of the hard drive or power supply failing, I have a feeling these things will keep on going and going and going for many years. You gotta like that no matter which Mac mini you have.

My refurb came earlier in the week. I have mine going with a 47" Sharp LCD and Plex. It's totally awesome! Now, I want to buy a Drobo or something for storing and backing up all of my movies and music.
