    Do not expect brand new cosmetics. You Mac may come with some minor "hairline" scratches.

    Also do yourself a favor, get the AppleCare extend warranty, regardless of buying brand new or refurbished.

    Refurbished Macs are pretty good, a friend of mine recently bought a refurbished MacBook Pro CD 2GHz, look almost entirely new, except for the battery closure, which looked a little scratched.

    Reminder though: PowerPC based Macs cannot dual boot Windows XP. Mac OS 10.5 for Intel is likely to support up to Windows Vista. PPC macs are depreciating really quickly, so maybe you can wait and see if the price goes down more drastically this holiday season.

    I do not mind if the condition is as good as new, but main thing is the price saving.

    I think you meant "I do not mind if the condition is _not_ as good as new"
