The popular variables to research when buying a refurbished Apple Macbook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, iMac, iPads and iPhones are listed below.
If you are shopping refurbished, low price is a priority. The easiest thing to do is compare what is available on the used market compared to what Apple has in the refurbished section of their website. You should expect an average savings of 10-15% off comparable models. You may also find comparable models on eBay or Amazon. It is important to consider the system configuration, return policy, warranty length and refurbishing process.
Look for Factory Certified
Next, look for “factory certified” refurbished Apple products having the same standards.
