Apple has started to sell discounted refurbished 13-inch MacBook Pro models online in the United States. Consumers can purchase these machines with up to $200 savings available on some base configurations compared to brand new models, as reported by MacRumors.
The latest 13-inch MacBook Pro lineup was launched in May this year with Magic Keyboard, powered by 10th generation Intel processors with up to 4.1GHz Turbo Boost, 3733MHz LPDDR4X memory, faster graphics performance, 16GB and 32GB memory variants and T2 built-in security chip.

There are a few different models of the 13-inch MacBook available, including the 8th generation i5 and i7 models, though these processers are not as fast as the 10th-generation CPUs, the models do come with Apple’s new scissor-switch Magic Keyboard that is much more sturdy than the infamous butterfly keyboards.
The price of the refurbished models varies according to their graphics chip, memory and core processors which range from $1269 to $2209. Customers can find these models here.
The tech giant says refurbished MacBook Pros are thoroughly cleaned and tested. The models also come with brand new optional accessories such as a power adapter and charging cable, “every unit is evaluated to ensure it meets Apple’s quality standards,” according to the company.
A refurbished MacBook Pro also comes with the tech giant’s standard one-year warranty effective on the date the notebook is delivered. Customers can also purchase AppleCare warranty to get extra insurance for their machine for $269.Customers are also given a 14-day return window by Apple; in case they are not satisfied with their purchase and would like to return it. In this case, the company will reimburse the customers in full.
If customers do not want to purchase a used MacBook from a third-party seller, buying a refurbished machine whose quality is guaranteed by Apple is a very good deal. The availability of the refurbished MacBooks depends on the number the company has in stock and these sell out often.
