Which is why I bought from that reseller. He charges a little more than private sales, but to me it is worth it, which brings me to your main point, and I fully agree, Apple refurbs are certainly the best way to go, however Apple USA chooses to support Apple Australia in their price jacking (of aprox. $100 - $130 per unit) over USA prices, by not selling to directly Australian consumers. That is a whopping premium to pay on an item worth only around $500 or so.

There is so much documented on the internet about the random shutdown problem going way back to 2006, and still today there are new occurrences in newer machines, that it becomes a real concern when it happens to yourself, unless money is of little concern.

I guess the only way is to pay the premium and look at it as insurance, or extended warranty.

Thanks for your input.
