If you’ve been waiting for a good deal on the latest MacBook Pros, this might be your best shot. Apple now sells refurbished M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook models in its Certified Refurbished store, as reported by MacRumors.
The official Apple Store is still the best place to get refurbished Apple products. Currently, you can get a 10% discount on some MacBook Pro models, a savings of $200 to $350. That’s not a ton of savings (especially compared to third-party resellers), but it also comes with Apple’s one-year warranty.
However, Apple’s refurbished programs are more than just the savings. Apple’s refurbished MacBooks come with all manuals, cables, and charging bricks that originally came with the device. That is not always a guarantee if you buy other refurbished products. Apple also claims to test all products to make sure everything works as it should.
Apple’s refurbished products are also eligible for Apple Care+. So if you’re concerned that a previously faulty device may experience problems in the future, Apple Care+ guarantees it will receive the same treatment as any other Apple device.
Currently, the site has several options for refurbished M1 Pro and M1 Max models. The entry-level 14-inch M1 Pro MacBook costs $1,800, saving you $200 right away. That model also has 16 GB of unified memory and a 512 GB SSD.
On the high end, you can get a 16-inch M1 Max MacBook Pro for $3,150, a savings of $350 off the MSRP. That model is equipped with 32 GB of unified memory and 1 TB SSD.
In our review of the MacBook Pro, we praised the computer’s incredible performance and beautiful display. Those and many other reasons earned it our Editor’s Choice award. The only real complaint we had was with the distracting notch. That didn’t change the fact that it’s the best MacBook Apple has made in years, though.
The Certified Refurbished store has limited quantities, so these models will likely sell out quickly.
