Buy refurbished Macs from the Apple Store and save 20%

Apple sells refurbished Macs via their website at this link: Everything on that site comes straight from Apple, with free shipping, and a 1-year warranty (same as new). If something goes wrong you bring it to the Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Center (also same as new). Typical savings: about 20%, though sometimes it’s a little more. I buy all of my Macs refurbished and pocket the savings. You should do it too.

Everyone likes a good deal and this is the best deal around. What you get will look brand-new– no scratches, no dents.

Apple also sells refurbished iPads and iPods and iPhones and Apple Watches at a discount, as well as discontinued items from Apple and other manufacturers. See this link for that. Sometimes “refurbished” just means “someone got this as a gift but decided she wanted a different color, so she brought it back.” It doesn’t mean the machine was damaged, not necessarily.
