The 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models that were released in July 2018 can now be purchased from Apple’s Certified Refurbished Store. With discounts starting at A$410 off the 13-inch model. And a massive A$620 off the high-end 15-inch MacBook Model.
Apple’s Certified Refurbished Store is exclusively available to Apple online. It is the only place where Apple sells genuine refurbished stock. All models have undergone a process which sees them being tested. They also include new manuals, cables, boxes, etc.
Over the years I have found refurbished models to be an awesome way to get a new Mac cheaper from Apple directly. In all cases they have arrived in perfect condition. Besides, if there were to be anything I doubted – you can return it free.
The new models with Touch Bar were released in July and at time of writing are still the current generation models. They feature 8th-generation Intel Core processors, with 6-core on the 15-inch model for up to 70 percent faster performance and quad-core on the 13-inch model for up to two times faster performance — ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing.
Pricing and Buying
Pricing and savings do vary depending on which model you choose from. And whether you go the 13-inch or 15-inch model. Apple also offers Refurbished Stock which has been customised with more storage, RAM, graphics, and more.
