NO MacBooks, MB Pros, nor MB Airs in the Refurb's

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been patiently waiting for a refurbed 2011 MacBook Air. I check many times daily but still have not seen them.
Today, there have been no portable Macs at all on the refurbed page.
I'm hoping that tomorrow, a Tuesday , they will be there.
Maybe other things are coming too....

No, there won't be 'other things' tomorrow.

Refurbs refresh whenever they exist, not sooner.

I knew that as soon as I posted that, they'd put some back up there.
Sure enough - they did, but not the 2011's.

Yep. I'm fully aware of that. I just think it's strange that there wasn't a single portable Mac available all day until early this evening. I'm just hoping for the 2011 Airs.

I saw that, too, and was surprised. I don't figure it will be for long, though.

But if it is, and this thought really hasn't crossed anyone's mind in recent history, I don't believe, it's a testament to people not returning their Macs and not having any problems with them.

You have to be quick on the trigger with refurbs at times. I've bought several machines that way and learned that the hard way.

I check many times per day and have never seen a 2011 11.6" MBA, yet.

I found a brand new, 4GB/128GB 2011 1.6 i5 on Craigslist and bought it for $900.
Very good deal for me and for the seller, who actually one it in a sweepstakes.

It's very slick. However, the battery drains quicker than my 2010 11.6" did. That one also drained faster after installing Lion. Hopefully a fix will be available soon.
