Yes, I was able to use this with my Apple Macbook Pro (July, 2010, 13" model). In order to accomplish this, you must buy a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Female Adapter Cable (I purchased this through Amazon for around $5.00) and an HDMI cable. Simply plug it into one of the HDMI ports on the back of the TV and choose it through the remote. Presto, you have a GIGANTIC monitor now to either work or download content from iTunes.

It means that it was either bought and returned with a problem or it was a problem the company caught and repaired before being sold. It will come to you like any brand new product, boxed, wrapped, protective film, instructions, remotes, and cables. You just pay way less.

Someone bought the TV. Then they decided they didn't want it, or that it doesn't do what they said it does, or it may even have broken or malfunctioned. They return the TV to either the store they bought it from, or the manufacturer. It gets repaired and repackaged to "Brand New Specification." It then gets sold at a discount.

Apparently these sets had a problem or were previously purchased and were returned for any number of reasons. Then they were reinspected to make sure they operated correctly and sold at a discount since they are not technically brand new. They are supposed to come with all the parts a brand new set would have with the same basic warranty.

I think that means that something was wrong with it at one point and it was returned back to the manufacturer and they fixed it and restored it back into good working condition.

My refurbished Vizio came with all the parts (except one tiny screw not really needed) and the same basic warranty as a new set, but was priced at least $70 less. Shipping and order tracking were the same as with any other Walmart purchase and so far it performs the same as a new set.

My understanding is that refurbished means it was returned to the factory for some reason (possibly even for a scratch on the frame) and has passed all inspections and should perform as new. This 42" set has a 90 warranty from the 'Refurbished Product Service Center' and is sold with no warranty from Vizio. I have never had a problem with a refurbished electronic item, but had we not needed the set (at $439) I may have considered paying more and buying from Costco.

Oh Yeah, Buying refurbished isn't like a scratch and dent sale, anything from any store will come packaged just the way you would buy any product. Wrapped up, protective films, cables, the works.
The only person who knows you got refurbished is you.
