Why should I buy a Refurbished MacBook Pro?
Apple state themselves: “Before we put a refurbished Mac, iPod, iPad or Apple TV up for sale in Special Deals, it undergoes a rigorous refurbishment process to make sure it meets Apple’s tough quality standards.”
Save your hard-earned cash with 20% off retail
The price of refurbished MacBook Pros does fluctuate. However, in general, you will find around a 10 – 30 percent saving versus the cost of buying one brand-new. With new MacBook Pros boasting high price tags, buying refurbished can amount to a fairly hefty saving.
The great thing about buying a refurbished MacBook Pro, is that they are almost identical to the new ones you would buy from the Apple store. Refurbished products are cleaned, checked, tested and practically visually indifferent from brand new models (with the exception of a few light surface scratches at most).
A reconditioned MacBook Pro comes with the same one-year warranty (and can still be extended to three years with AppleCare protection) that any new Apple purchase comes with. You also get the same sales and return procedure with Apple, and can return a refurb within 14 days if you’re not happy with it.

What do people say about purchasing refurbs?
We interviewed a few of our users about their refurbished MacBook Pros.
"I'm happy to buy anything that's refurbished, and Apple's standard for refurbished are beyond anything in the market! The Macbook Pro I was looking for was sold out at the time I was searching (It was $1,189 instead of $1,499). I got a notification from RefurbMe a day later when it became available, and 3 days later, UPS delivered it to me. It came in a nice white box, with the original accessories and in a stellar condition. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and my experience using RefurbMe :)"
"I used this website 3 years ago to purchase two computers, one for me and one for my wife. I didn't realize I was buying it from Apple the first time, so I made the order be picked up directly from the Apple Store. It was like a brand new computer, with the warranty and everything. I saved more than $600 on that purchase! And just recently, I scored a 15-inch MacBook Pro with a $450 discount. I like refurbished because there's no sacrifice and great savings."
