That is not necessarily true. Some refurbs are "buyer's remorse" returns. Even if they did have something wrong at one time (maybe a bad hard drive or whatever), Apple returns them to like-new condition before selling them on the refurb store. If anything, a refurb has been looked over and tested MORE than a new machine that comes off the production line. Refurbs get the same warranty as new machines as well.


I've gotten nothing but refurbs from my 2nd mac on forward - never had a problem with any of them and I credit it to the repair and 2nd round of testing they get.

Has anyone here purchased a Student ADC membership in order to get the Hardware Discount Store? I checked it out, and the baseline Core2 Duo MacBook Pro is $1599, (Student ADC costs $99 though) I purchased the SADC kit, and faxed them my credentials (photocopy of student ID and schedule). My question is, how long does it take for them to clear your status? Apple's FAQ was very ambiguous about this!

Nevermind, it came through (that was quick!) Woohoo $400 discount!

Sorry, that was a promotion over the summer that ended about two weeks before the "It's Showtime" event where Apple released the upgraded iPods and 2nd generation iPod nanos. They still do, however, have a free printer deal with the purchase of a new computer (see http://store.apple.c...8.7.3.5.1.2.1.1 for more information) that runs through January 22.

To bring a product from USA to Brazil you pay 60% off taxes over the price of the product + shipping...and even doing this, stuff still cheaper than buying on a normal store...you pay here for an iPod 80gb more than $900 dollars =P

Hello from Mid Canada...
I concur on the REFURB thinking... seems they get "at least" as good a Burn In/ Test time and have the Full Year Warranty as well... pretty good deals on the "Old MBP"s" now as well... and they seem to Sell Real Fast as well if you frequently look at this page.....

If you're located in NZ, you can do worse than MacSellerDirect. They import Macs in bulk and offer excellent discounts on the entire Mac range, usually between 10% and 15% on the NZ Apple Store.

    Mostly PC, now Mac too.
A little about taxes - here in Czech Republic we have 19% VAT, but it is cheaper to buy Mac in US (and pay an average tax of 5%), pay for delivery and then pay our VAT.
In case of my Macbook it was (($1300*0.045)+$100)*0.19 and it was almost 22% cheaper than in the local Apple store - so guys - don't complain about your US taxes, they are just lovely ;-)

There are pretty much no such things as "coupon codes". Just rebates and discounts.

Correct me if im wrong but...

US taxes are low because we have no national health care whereas other countries have a national health care plan hence why the taxes are so high.

I'd much rather pay higher taxes and have health care coverage imo

I can't speak for you guys over seas, but here in the US we also pay tax on all of our income... usually 25-30%, depending on how much you make and what tax bracket that puts you in. Fortunately here where I live, our local tax is only 5%... well 6% because we recently enacted a local sales tax to pay for some school programs.

That said, there are some (crazy, imho) proposals to do away with the income tax and replace it with a national sales tax, which many would estimate would have to be in the range of 40+% to be viable. If some have their way, we may soon join some of you others paying crazy amounts of sales tax! (and US citizens: vote no on the Fair Tax!)

That said, I've never understood why such products are so expensive in other countries. I was under the impression that Americans were generally considered wealthy compared to most of the industrialized world (up until the plummeting of the dollar started a few years ago). I couldn't imagine even the thought of paying 900 USD for an iPod. I think there would be a revolt!

here in Europe we also pay taxes: 18% VAT, 25% tax on all of our income, 12% tax for social care, my every 1000$ on hand for my chief costs 1500$ with taxes. From my every 1000$ I pay 18% VAT. The problem? I am my chief :).

mate we pay 17.5% VAT on goods we buy with money that has already been taxed between 20-50% (depending on earnings) before it even reaches your pocket.. Plus national insurance contributions (for national pension HA).. :)
