Not a stupid question, but no you can't.

As a student you're better off getting a new one - it's only £701:

And what exactly is the advantage of paying an extra £70 for that?

With laptops, refurb usually means the box is damaged or its been used briefly and sent back. It does not mean its old and second hand, it will still appear to be in brand-new conditon and gets the full 1-year warranty.

In some cases it does mean that they've repaired it and 'looked over it' so whose to decide which one someone will get?

Besides that, the other poster found it brand new for £701 so either way this gets my cold vote.

You have to be a university student to get it brand new for £701....

Like I said, either way..

I'd rather pay the extra £70 and not worry whether it's been repaired or not.

Fair enough, but Apple refurbs are as new, and you could buy 3 year Applecare off ebay for £70.

I know what I'd rather do.

best deal in this galaxy. ordered 500.

This also gives you a soul.

Well that would be a waste of money IMO, given its the same laptop with the same period of warranty cover.

Apple only sell Grade A refurbs. You are referring to grade B. Apple products when sold as refurbs are as new, you wouldn't have anyway of knowning they were not new apart from the white box packaging.

Grade B refurbs are when the devices are used and have been repaired. With these you are likely to get cosmetic damage.

These deals come up regularly enough if you keep an eye on apples refurb store

Bought one of these last month - other than the packaging, you'd not know it's a 'refurb'. Besides, refurbished products have typically gone through more testing than the new equivalent - better QC, and 120 off the retail price with the same 1 year warranty... it's a no-brainer if you're in the market for a MacBook.

Sounds like the same guy both times. I don't believe it is a scam at all (and I've used them for years
with no issue).

How do you think the eBay sellers are able to sell the Applecare codes for less than Apples wholesale price then?

Bulk buying, retail outlets going out of business, etc.

Don't spread FUD by stating something is fact when in fact many sellers are entirely legit.
