Apple has officially added multiple configurations of its 2018 MacBook Pro with OLED Touch Bar to its online refurbished devices storefront in the United States.
And while the current stock is limited to models with a 13-inch Retina display, as with all of Apple’s certified refurbished offerings, what’s available is up for grabs at some pretty deep discounts — up to 15 percent off the equivalent model in a factory-sealed box — with perks to sweeten the pot.
Among the available offerings is a refurbished base-model MacBook Pro equipped with a 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 CPU, 256 GB of SSD storage, 8 GB of RAM, and Intel’s integrated Iris Plus 655 GPU, which is available for just $1,529 in the United States.
That reflects a pretty decent savings of $270 off the brand-new model’s $1,799 MSRP.
This configuration is available in both Silver and Space Gray finishes.
For those wanting more power and even more savings to match, also available is a refurbished MacBook Pro that’s fully maxed-out with a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 2 TB of SSD storage, 16 GB of RAM, and Intel’s Iris Plus 655 GPU which is available for $3,139 in the United States.
That reflects an even deeper savings of $560 off the brand-new model’s $3,699 MSRP.
This configuration is currently available in Space Gray.
Apple is likewise offering a variety of other refurbished MacBook Pro configurations at various price points, but supplies are limited and subject to change at any time.
Benefits of Buying Refurbished
If you’re in the market to pick up Apple’s most advanced 13-inch MacBook Pro model yet, the company’s certified refurbished program offers a great opportunity to save money while providing customers with the same world renowned quality and world-class service that’s synonymous with the Apple brand.
According to Apple, refurbished MacBook Pro models are “thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged, including the manuals and cables included in the box,” and come with the company’s standard one-year warranty — effective from the date it’s delivered at their door.
And the standard warranty can even be extended to three years with the purchase of an AppleCare+ protection plan for Mac.
Customers north of the border, meanwhile, can also pick from Apple’s refurbished inventory by visiting the Canadian refurbished Apple Store, where a similar variety of 13-inch MacBook Pros are available at similar discounts.
