$929 for the equiv. on Apple's refurb site. -5% (~$46) for ShopDiscover and + tax (none for me).
However, that is an Apple refurb which is as good as new + 1 yr warranty.
WRT warranties, it says:
Eligible for 30-day return policy. Aftermarket warranty available for purchase from Square Trade since used items are not typically covered by the original manufacturer's warranty. Item may come repackaged. « Show less
Just to clarify some points in this thread.... some info is WRONG....
1 - These are NOT necessarily returns... they could have a damaged box, etc - something Amazon would not be able to sell as NEW.... So, look under warehouse deals on Amazon's page (Or google Amazon Warehouse Deals item conditions) and you will see what they sell here... and why.... and how they categorize them. (Like new, Very good, good, etc)
2 - These most likely come with warranty left on them.... but, if not, your chances of sending the receipt to Apple and getting a full year's warranty on them (based on YOUR purchase date and receipt from Amazon) is, from my personal experience, 100%. I have done this over 15x and NEVER ONCE had Apple blink... even though the receipt I upload to Apple says "USED - LIKE NEW" or whatever in the item description. But it is an Amazon.com receipt and Apple has NEVER once said one thing... within 48hrs of my request I get an email from Apple - "We have updated your warranty status....blah blah blah" So, I understand the concerns... I can only tell you I have NEVER had Apple question my purchase, or purchase date, or deny my request to have the Warranty start from the date on my Amazon.com receipt.
3 - LIke I said above, I have gotten plenty of these deals - for me and to resale - never had one problem. Some come in BRAND NEW UNOPENED boxes... some come in generic brown boxes... Some come in scuffed up Apple boxes... etc... But the items themselves are LIKE NEW for the most part. I scored two 27" iMac a few months back - which I use... and LOVE! And one came in the Apple box and one didn't... but both were like new and both got a FULL 1 yr warranty once I sent Apple the receipt.... And BOTH got Applecare on them as well.. SO YES, Applecare is POSSIBLE with no issues.
