Anybody ever buy one? I am pretty much set on a MBP but I don't know if I should buy an new one with edu. discount for $1950 with shipping and tax. Or a refurbished one for $1700 with tax and shipping.

Are the refurbished ones reliable? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've bought other products reburbed before without any issues. Is the warranty the same as new, or is it limited?

I have a MBP, an Airport Express and an iPod Shuffle all refurbs, no problems, same warranty and support and you can even buy Applecare extended warranty if you want it.

You mileage may vary, but I think its a pretty good way to save some money.

Good luck on that !! Once you do get it though , you might have some nice surprises : I've read feedbacks where people got more RAM or Hard Drive space than described ( and surprisingly never the other way around ) :biggrin:

I bought the 2.33 MBP a few months ago and I absolutely love it!

I installed boot camp, it's the best of both worlds, OSX for editing, and XP for everything else

This is good to hear. I will be retiring and will no longer need a pc laptop for work. If I can find a buyer for my Sony Vaio, perhaps I can afford a refurb Mac Book Pro.

That's true of my little 12" Powerbook. Advertised as an 80GB hard drive, it came with 100Gb fitted.
