Holy cow, man! Those are pictures of an iBook. Just like the ones I see in the stores. And you have pictures of one. I mean, a first person sighting and every thing <br><br>Okay, but seriously, congrats. What do refurbs sell for?<br><br>
"Apple's quality control from these Taiwanese laptop manufacturers has been below-average in recent years. I'd rather have an iBook that has been inspected inside and out."<br><br>I'm afraid I have to agree with you on that. A friend on mine is on his second 1.8 GHz G5 and it's now acting wonky. So far, my new 2.5 DP G5 is purring along with nary a problem, but I'm keeping an eye out for any glitch.<br><br>I definitely never buy the first model on any computer which means I won't see a new Intel Mac until 2008 at the earliest.<br><br>Like you, I trust a refurb more than a new model. My refurb Dell I bought two years ago hasn't had a single part failure. There are some problems with slowness but I think that's just part of the architecture of the thing, since they try to cheap out on everything.<br><br>
My first Gen G4 350 still runs great - however keep in mind that Apple switched its original Taiwan manufacturer shortly after, to a new Taiwan garbage dump. I will say that after switching dumps I began to hear about more trash blowing across the streets<br><br>
Refurbs go for up toi 40% off the original retail price. <br><br>Go to the Apple Store site, then scroll down on the lower-right hand corner to special deals. That site is updated all the time. As near as I can tell, the biggest update occurs in the middle of the night. <br><br>I got my iBook for $649.<br><br>
Loc: Syracuse, NY
Looks good. Excellent purchase.<br><br>I remember that packaging very well. We bought ours a month before Christmas. It was to be one of the gifts from my wife. I knew the hiding spot and had that thing out of the packaging more times than I care to admit. <br><br>
