There is a Refurbished 13" MBP on the Apple Store...
http://store.apple.com/us/product/FC700LL/A?mco=MjIwMTAxNTY
$1080 (PA tax included).

The cheaper I can find elsewhere is Mac Mall at $1106 (no tax in PA).

I'm looking forward to buy the 15" MBP, but still no refurbished.
MacMall sells it for $1659. I hope I can find a better deal buying it refurbished.

A 15" Refurbished MBP Appeared today on the Ref Store.
Cost $1529+Tax ( $1620).
It wont qualify on the Back to School offer (staring maybe next week).

On the other hand, I can buy the same, not refurbished, on Mac Mall at $1659.

It is only a 40$ difference. Should I get the new one?

What would you do?

For $40 I'd feel better that no other person has touched my machine Smile

Well, it's a refurb for a reason. I'd go with a new one.
