I LOVE this model -- I just had to replace it and got a refurbished model from Amazon from about $70 -- no tax and for some reason, I qualified for fast free shipping instead of slow free shipping.

My electric cord got melted on my toaster oven which was the reason for my replacing my old machine which was a refurbished model from another on-line entity but this time amazon was cheaper after free shipping.
I had gotten new ones prior to this so had taken a chance on my first refurbished model -- but it really was new and I assume that someone takes it out of the box and just doesn't like it for some reason -- it was pristine. Definitely not "used". I got my father's Apple computer this way -- once it is taken home by someone and taken out of the box, the store can no longer sell as new in many instances.
