Apple Counters Secondhand Sales With Discount Refurbished in China

Apple's set up an online refurbished discount store in China, lowering prices by up to 22% in order to combat secondhand non-Apple-approved sales going on in the country already.

The refurbs, based on the Reuters writeup, don't seem all that great. A $44 iPod shuffle and a $2047 iMac seems like normal price to us. [Reuters]
