Should I buy a refurbished Mac or New Mac?

I want to buy a mac and I am noticing that a refurbished one is a lot cheaper.

Do refurbished ones come with the same software and features of a new Mac?

Do refurbished ones show ware and tear?

    Yes and Yes and the big one is I am doing the same thing .....they cost a lot more for a new one yet Apple posts Refurbs daily and they are sold on a first come first bases. They are just as good and covered under all warranties and all the programs are the same. Apple takes some returns or one will not work when sold so these get returned and serviced and repackaged and sold for a good price.

    all the ones I have seen look good and run well yet if you see one you like remember it may not be there later on that day.
