Thought about buying a new MacBook Pro for christmas and check the store recently and it's down. I'm guessing it's something not hardware related, being so close to christmas, but you never know.
Good as gold, but. IMHO, the savings aren't substantial enough.Thought about a refurb 15" 2.4GHz, but I've never purchased any refurb Apple products.
I can vouch for Apple refurbs (iPod and Mac), if that means anything to you! The price is worth it, and you get the same 1yr warranty service as new products.I think $400 off is pretty substantial, but not if the track record on refurbs from Apple is problematic. I may decide to go with a 2.2GHz, save a little money and it's new.
