That's a good deal...Better than the one posted earlier...You can get it a little bit cheaper with quidco...

3% for dixons...about £20

Good deal, much better than the rubbish spec one posted earlier.

So, what does ppl think... Its 225gbp cheaper than the latest Macbook Pro... but its specs are very much the same... I know Sandybridge processors are better but how much difference are you going to notice compared to this one? Moreover, the Nvidia 320M is some cases better than the internal Intel HD 3000 that comes with the new one... which one would you guys go for?

Anyone know if Apple offer student discounts on the refurb store?

I researched this earlier, and unfortunately they don't

id pressume (probably incorrectly) it was even a slightly newer model, thought the 2.4's were in part of the 2010 series but that could be a load of balogne on my part, i dont really know much about about the macbook range

EDIT: a quick google this might well be a late 2008 tbh.. so maybe older.. still better spec.. im just gna compare the cpu's

EDIT: Not a lot between them this one is marginally better

Or go for the 5% available at TCB, which will bring this down to £641.25. This a great deal, and much better than the one I posted.

Damn, wondering if i should just pay extra and go for the new for £850 but only 1 year ofuni left so unsure if apple car carries on after I leave uni

The Apple Care should be still running even if you've left school.

Thanks for that, just spoke to Apple sales and told them about me pondering this vs new apple deal and they said I should for the new one as its 3x faster and about the same speed as the old 17" pro's

I see only 3.03% on TCB, 5% is for collection at store but you cannot check this option in the checkout.

This is a very tempting price...and I don't even need one!

Same here....Anyone have any experience of these Refurbs??? What kind of condition do they come in?

Would you guys go for this deal (MBP 13'' 1 year warranty at Currys, £675) or rather the current White Macbook with student discount (£745.20, 3 year warranty AppleCare) ?

MBP every time.

No personal experience but I hear Apply replaces the case and check everything as if its a new product... Its Apple, its got to be good. Plus, 1 year warranty.. its no big issue.

Code not working guys

Don't know why it changed from Dixons link to Currys link... bizzare.. I updated the link in desc. If any editor could change the link to Dixons.. it will be much appreciated..

n just checked, definitely works in Dixons..

For Currys, code PC7 works to get 7% off (any laptop over £599)

great deal, does any know how much is the student discount?

15% off retail price

So can anyone confirm if this is the last model to the current? So Spring 2010 model?

Cashback better at TCB: 3.03%

Guys what on earth is the difference part from the RAM, HD, CPU and looking slightly diff?:
