Wow, over 400$ savings on the highest end models? I would definitely not buy them new at this point.

You're not the only one. Between the screens and the creaky cases, the manufacture defects are through the roof on this version. Seems the norm with the new Apple.


Seriously I gave up.

Listen to me folks, I'm not some crazy guy on the internet who has some idealistic measure of quality that Apple cannot meet. I had five of these notebooks and they all had issues with their screens.

I have have four previous Apple Notebooks, no yellow on any of them, I still use my current Apple notebook yellow free. I have an iPhone 5, no yellow. I have an iPad Air, no yellow. All perfect displays.

If you get one of these refurbs, good luck, because you will need it.

Hmmm, I ordered a New Retina Macbook Pro 2013 with the specs below from BHPHOTOVIDEO the last week of 2013 for a discounted price and no sales tax and its still on backorder with no time frame on availability.

A refurb from Apple with taxes saves me 90 dollars and presumably I will get it with in the week.

So should I cancel my order and spring for a refurbished purchase from Apple?

Does the refurbished lose resale value quicker? Any problems I may encounter?


15.4-inch (diagonal) Retina display; 2880-by-1800 resolution at 220 pixels per inch
16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
512GB Flash Storage1
720p FaceTime HD camera
Intel Iris Pro Graphics and NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M


Yes, I would cancel if it is cheaper.

No, refurbs do not lose their resale value quicker. No problems, as the machine comes with standard Apple warranty and available for Applecare.

Nice. As soon as the 13" models start showing up, I'm ordering.

Funny, now people will wish their MacBook has something ''Scamsung'' inside :p


No it isn't, everyone knows Samsung makes really good displays.

Some of them even cheaper than education-discounts. Recently ordered from edu store, I wish I'd waited a little bit more...

Actually, for most people, it was still cheaper to buy them new from B&H or Amazon in the pre-Black Friday sales than either EDU or these refurb prices, once you take everything into account.
