mrkgoo: For clarity, I was referring to the Noel lemming outlet centre. They had about 10 of them on clearance for $99. I called back earlier in the week and asked more carefully and they told they were refurbished units with 3 months warranty. Given the shaky history of some units, I gave it a pass.
Yeah, I would have gone new, plus you are protected by the CGA after the warranty runs out.
