Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display Now Available Refurbished
Apple Thursday started selling refurbished versions of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display that was introduced in October of 2012. They have been made available on Apple’s Online Store Web site and will be 15% cheaper than the new version of the machine.
At the refurbished prices, the 2.5Ghz Core i5 MacBook Pro with retina display that has 128GB of flash storage is $1439, which is normally priced at $1699 new. The 2.5Ghz Core i5 MacBook Pro with retina display that has 256GB of flash storage is $1699, which is normally priced at $1999 new. Finally, the 2.9Ghz Core i7 MacBook Pro with retina display that has 512GB of flash storage is $2289, which is normally priced at $2698 new.
Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display is a good productivity computer, however it lacks the powerful graphics that come in the 15-inch MacBook Pro with retina display, as it only comes with the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display has a resolution of 2650 x 1600 and comes packed with the latest Ivy Bridge processors from Intel and 8GB of 1600Mhz memory, which delivers a zippy experience for the user.
Apple’s refurbished machines come with the same warranties as a new Apple machine, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to pick up a refurbished model of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display if you’ve been craving one, and save some money.

That seems fast to have refurbs. I wonder how the 13inc is selling? I
I've my 15inch, but I would never pay what they see asking in terms of price for the 13 inch model.

Wonder how apple fare in replacing components? Given the difficulty servicing them (glass glued to screen / memory soldered to motherboard etc) wonder do they just replace the entire component that's faulty...?
