Apple Refurb Pricing Weirdness

, posted: 24-Mar-2010 12:09

Those of you who read my blogs may have seen I'm a big advocate of Apple refurbs as a good way of getting a cheap Mac.
I check the refurb page of the Apple NZ Store most weeks, always looking for a good deal for myself or for others who are trying to get an Apple as cheaply as they can. I would love to see some other Apple products turn up - check the US Refurb page - almost every product is available with a solid discount.

Now for the randomness. Today I spotted thisa refurbished MacPro for only $6199, which is only $400 above list price of $5799. I'm not sure how this price is worked out, you have to wonder sometimes......

UPDATE And then the listing magically dissappears after only a few hours.

UPDATE2 Spotted this one - the best deal ever? I think not.
