Apple, just four months after announcing the M1-based MacBook Pro, began selling a refurbished version.
For a basic MacBook Pro Refurbished with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, they ask for $1099. In comparison, a new model in the same configuration costs US $1299 now. The top model with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD-drive, in turn, will cost $ 1269 (the new model is $1499). There are two colors to choose from: Space Gray and Silver. Unfortunately, there is no similar assumption for the MacBook Air and Mac mini with M1 chips yet.
Refurbished Apple devices are gadgets that have been returned to the company for some reason. Apple checks them thoroughly, fixes them if necessary, and then sells them again at a good discount. Outwardly, they are no different from the new ones. By the way, all refurbished Apple devices are sold in special boxes and with original accessories.
