    refurbish macs : good choice or not ???

    Apple's refurbish service is not only for old macs. In fact, I'm mostly interested in recent hardware, that have been presentation hardware or things like that. I don't think I'll use shrevesystems's services since I live in france : shrevesystems don't seem to have a french department, whereas...

    128 kbps stereo AAC audio "indistinguishable" from original uncompressed audio?!?!

    fryke : The open source part of OS X is old, that's true (base on FreeBSD). But most problems concern the interface : nobody complain about the multitask, or about the memory handling.
