How many of you guys would trust a refurbished laptop from the apple website. From what I've read, they seem to go through extensive steps to make them good as new. I know that I probably wouldn't buy one off a random person, because I'll have no idea what they put the laptop through. But yeah, how many of you would trust one from the apple site???

No problems with mine cosmetic or otherwise. Even still, the term "refurbished" implies that the machine has been made "like new". So, if there are problems, you should be able to get Apple to rectify them.

I have heard of situations where there were cosmetic flaws, but I truly wouldn't be concerned with that. They are covered by the standard AppleCare warranty just as though they were new.

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!

I have a refurb Macbook and a Mac Pro. The Macbook has been less of a problem.

It's like buying a nearly new car, often all the teething troubles have been put right.

If it's no good return it for a refund within 14 days. I did this with an iMac after I wasn't happy with the screen (but it seems most widescreen TFTs buzz and have less perfect backlighting than 4:3 screen).

most refurbs are brand new anyway, it is jsut ones which have been brought back under the 14 day guarantee you get with new ones.
