If you want it for Uni, get a new one with student discount. I just bought (like 2 weeks ago) my new MacBook Pro 13" for college. I looked at the refurbs, but I got a student discount, but only from a new one, which added up to a bigger saving than a refurb.

I do web design, so can help with that.
Don't Ask Me about iWeb, Dreamweaver, Flash or any WYSIWYG.
Ask me about xHTML, HTML, HTML5, CSS, CSS3, PHP, MySQL, (basic) jQuery, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
