I've been holding off a MBA for quite some time mainly due to price. I'm looking at the refurbs, specifically this one:
Refurbished MacBook Air 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
64GB solid-state drive
I'm just wondering how much of the price discount is attributable to it being a previous model? Apple advertises it as 42% off original list of $3102, though I know they aren't selling for that much yesterday in store ($2499?).
So is this the same price I can expect to pay for a refurb new model of comparable specs shortly after they are out or is this heavily discounted because 1) it's a refurb and 2) it's a discontinued model?
