Refurbished MacBook Pro - Does It Worth The Money?
Honestly speaking, refurbished macbook pro is as dependable as new macs. I have owned two refurbished Macs and never had a hitch with either. They come with the same warranty as a new Mac and you can continually procure apple care to extend the warranty. They are same as any other computer, but faster, and i never come across any obstacle with connecting to the Internet.
In other words it is a fantastic computer. Some of them do have a small number of scratches but then, none of that hurts. The ultimate goal here is to save a couple hundred bucks. In fact, mine smells like brand new. I do endorse it as it is guaranteed to work comletely better.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should i get a refurbished macbook pro with applecare or start with a new one?
I am looking to switch from an HP laptop to potentially a mac. I saw on apples website that i can get a refurbished 13" Aluminum Macbook Pro for 9 and a three year applecare plan for 0. Together thats just about equal to a new 13" aluminum macbook pro. Is it worth getting a refurb with the warranty or starting with a new macbook and only the one year?
Get the refurbished one. Apple does an extraordinary job of refurbishing their products. Also, get the AppleCare either way. AppleCare is free on all Apple products for a year, and you can buy it anytime before that year is up. So, even though I STRONGLY recommend AppleCare, give the year a test and see how it goes. AppleCare has been extremely helpful for me. I brought my MacBook Pro in to get a tiny bubble in my display checked out and they ended up replacing my display. The repair total was around 0, which I didn't pay a cent for because of AppleCare. (oh and I bought my MacBook Pro new, and the bubble was still there) In summary, buy the refurbished one, and buy AppleCare! Oh, and if you are a student, there is a HUGE discount on AppleCare. Also, AppleCare will NOT cover any damage cause by you. (just a warning)
Does a refurbished macbook work like a new one?
I want to buy a macbook pro 15" that is REFURBISHED. I don't really see the big difference between a 2100$ new one and a refurbished 1200$ one. Is there something about refurbished laptops that make them bad? Or are they like a new laptop. Again it is a macbook pro 15" from Apple.
YEAH ! mine is a refirished one and it runs like new ..no problem!! go for it, happy i did. what they are actually doing is give you new hard drive and fix the macbook. doesn't mean it's broken. i asked the guy what they do to refurbish it and he said add a new hard drive, new screen and new keyboard and mouse.
go for it !
How much does a refurbished macbook cost?
I want a macbook for christmas. macbook pros are too expensive and a macbook might be too, so how much is your average refurbished macbook? (refurbished means it is used, but they erased everything on it, and made it look pretty)
Here is the link to the Refurb Apple area the prices change almost daily even by the hour sometimes so I could not give you a good price list. We check it out once a day when we are interested in getting a Refurb.
Also 9000 Dhirams is around 1085.2020 US dollars
9000 Moroccan dirhams = 1085.2020 US dollars
Okay so, Mac books are a little bit out of price range, So I was thinking getting a refurbished mac book would be better because of the price . But does it work like new.? Does it have scratches or anything.? Please take a look and reply .
Haha . Just noticed its out of stock . x[
You cannot go wrong with a refurbish machine. Especially apple. They will not sell it if it is not in top shape.
Where can I buy a refurbished macbook in the NW of England?
Where can I buy a refurbished macbook in the North West of England (Lancashire/Manchester)? I'm looking for a very reasonable price and with some sort of warranty.
I'm watching a few on eBay but I'd rather see what I'm getting before I commit to buy something like this.
I've checked on the Apple site but they tend to be the Macbook Pro which are too expensive. My daughter only has £500 to spend.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Keep looking on the Apple Stores as they regularly have MacBooks, although there are none today. Also try the Jigsaw site http://www.jigsaw24.com/refurb.aspx or Cancom http://www.cancomuk.com/Home/Clearance/Refurbished-Products although neither have anything today.
