Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro is now available through the company’s refurbished store from $ 2,039. This model from the end of 2019 has an improved keyboard, a lot of power and what The edgeDieter Bohn thinks this is the ‘best speakers on a laptop’. It is usually very expensive, starting at $ 2,399 for a new machine and from there. But from today (via MacRumors) you can choose between different refurbished models via the Apple online store.
The basic configuration of $ 2,399 is now $ 2,039 and comes with a six-core 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, a 512 GB SSD and AMD’s Radeon Pro 5300M integrated graphics chip.
The more expensive $ 2,799 model is also discounted to $ 2,379 refurbished (which is actually $ 20 less than the new basic model configuration). It features an eight-core Intel Core i9 CPU, 16 GB RAM, a larger 1 TB SSD and a slightly faster AMD Radeon Pro 5500 M graphics chip.
There are various configurations available through Apple’s refurbished site, ranging from a few that don’t cost much more than the aforementioned configurations to configurations that are more astronomical. Although, as is usually the case with popular products that end up on Apple’s refurbished page, they may soon be sold out.
If you have not fixed anything through Apple, there is no good reason not to do this. I can raise an eyebrow just as quickly as I see refurbished products selling online as you might be, but Apple’s renovation program is pretty good. Your purchase is shown as new, is covered by a one-year warranty, and you can add AppleCare for extra security.
