Hi
Im about to buy a refurbished macbook pro 13" from february 2011.
It is the i5 2.3ghz model. I've been reading online, that people who recently bought the 2011 model are having issues with boot and crashes. Am i okay with this model or is it infected aswell? Thanks!

Not that I've heard of (and mind hasn't had any issues of the sort). I think you're fine - and of course, it's covered under the same warranty as a new machine, so if something's wrong, they'll take care of it.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Exactly the same as a new machine, but in a generic box.
