I want to buy 13 inch MBP. Saw this: Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Apple Store (Australia)

Is this the current MBP? And is there really much disadvantage buying a refurbished one?

Thanks...

Yes

No - only difference, you don't get the fancy box.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

no, there's not difference. I bought a 13" MBP refurbished about 2 weeks ago and it works perfectly. The best part is it comes with the same AppleCare warranty that a brand new one does, so you can be confident it will work just as well for just as long.

I swapped out my mbp 15"(more than $2,200) for a refurbished mbp 15 that was on sale for almost $1400, I had to pay a fee for using it($250), but I still came out ahead while still having the same computer! I will for sure buy my next mac as a refurbished model...no doubt about it!
