Apple produces some of the best laptops on the planet. That’s old news, of course, and so is the fact that shopping their top-of-the-line hardware will usually leave a sizable dent in your checking account.
But, if you’re keen on upgrading to a fancier MacBook while still sticking to your budget, you might want to consider shopping refurbished instead. While refurbished devices are purchased second-hand, they’re tested to work just as well as their brand new counterparts, albeit with some cosmetic wear and tear.
It’s not uncommon to find refurbished electronics for hundreds off their usual price, plus by shopping pre-owned, you’ll be giving a used device a new lease on life and reducing your impact on the growing global e-waste problem.
In short, there are a myriad of benefits to upgrading to a refurbished device, and if it’s a MacBook Pro you’re looking to upgrade to, you can get this pre-owned one with a 13″ display and 8GB of RAM for just $428.99.
Apple laptops last much longer than most brands. When you buy a refurbished Macbook Pro, you can expect several years of service. What’s more, these machines offer similar performance to many brand new laptops.
The Macbook Pro 13” is no exception. This beautiful beast is powered by a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 processor, which can reach 3.1GHz with Turbo Boost. It also has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and 500GB of storage for media.
These specs are ideal for surfing the web, watching Netflix, and getting things done. With seven hours of battery life on a full charge, you can easily work on the move.
This device in particular is “Grade B Refurbished,” which means you may see a minor mark or two on the lid. However, every device is in perfect working order.
This Macbook Pro was originally priced at $1,299.99. With this deal, you can get a refurbished device for just $428.99.
