In response to a prior question, I was informed that a more powerful refurbished MacBook Pro may better fit my processing needs and still keep me in my budget.

I would love to know the experiences of those who have purchased a refurbished unit. Is it packaged "like new" -- is it "like new" in appearance or does it have blemishes/scratches/etc. -- would you purchase a refurbished unit again after your experience?

I have purchased two refurbished MBPs' in the last couple of years.
Both have been excellent machines cosmetically and operationally.
Yes I will purchase a refurb Mac again in the future.

The last four Macs I have purchased have been refurbished. They are indistinguishable from a brand new machine. The only difference is they come in a bland box without the pretty packaging. In my opinion, it is more than worth the savings.
