Refurb Macs, $5 gift wrap

Apple is offering a wide variety of reconditioned Macs alongside $5 gift wrap for iPods, iPhones, Apple software, and select accessories. Signature gift wrapping features a white gift box with a bright red ribbon and a personalized greeting card. The Cupertino-based company's online store currently lists numerous refurbished MacBook Pro (from $1,699-$2,399) and MacBook models ($899-$1,249) alongside a slew of Mac Pro workstations (from $2,199-$3,399) in various configurations. As always every refurbished item is guaranteed good-as-new, comes with a one-year warranty, and ships for free.

    I always buy refurbished!

    For some reason, the machines seem to come out of the factory in varying states of operation. Not all, but some need a reformat/reinstall, others have undetected hardware can be a pain in the arse.

    That's why I always buy refurbished machines from Apple. Why? Because refurbished machines are exactly the same as their new counterparts, except these machines have been lovingly tested and repaired by the Apple techs here in the states. They have been put through the paces, and come out wholly operational.

    It's like the best quality control you can ask why buy new?

    and sometimes its new

    my wife's macbook seem to be new based on the weird configuration. i purchased it right around when they refreshed the line. It seemed like they took some of the remaining parts and put it together.

    I don't buy refurbs

    Buying refurbs means: you must have time to burn. only if you are willing to face a 10% chance of problems. if you bang three times and Apple can't repair it, they may give you a NEW one. Now that's an advantage. Visa/MasterCard/AmEx do not honor extended warranty which is automatically applied toward purchases of brand-new items.
