Apple Adds the 13-Inch Models of Its 2018 MacBook Pro Line to the Refurbished Store
After officially launching its 2018 MacBook Pro lineup with upgraded processors, Apple has added those models to its refurbished store in the U.S. for the first time. You will immediately notice that the prices are lower compared to the new models and if you’re down to experiencing macOS on a machine with lots of cores but with a slightly smaller price, you should check out these models.
With Refurbished 2018 MacBook Pro Models, You Can Expect a 15 Percent Lower Pricing
The cheapest refurbished model belonging to the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar carries a price of $1,529. The specifications of this notebook include a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB of NVMe PCIe SSD storage, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and an Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 iGPU. Purchasing this model will result in savings of $270, with the regular price being $1,799, and available finishes include Silver and Space Gray.
If you want a maxed out version of the 13-inch 2018 MacBook Pro, it will cost you $3,319 but the internal specifications are very impressive. These include a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 2TB of NVMe PCIe SSD storage, 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and an Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 iGPU. In the U.S, you will be able to save $560, but this particular configuration is only available in Space Gray.
You should be reminded that quantities are scarce, so you will need to act fast or using the Refurb Tracker option to monitor when the inventory is replenished. According to Apple, the refurbished MacBook Pro models are thoroughly inspected rigorously, tested for problems, cleaned, and repackaged, with the packaging including manuals and cables.
In addition, the refurbished variants come with Apple's standard one-year warranty that is effective on the date the notebook is delivered to your doorstep. If you want to extend that warranty to three years from the original purchase date with AppleCare+, it will set you back by $269 and it will only be applicable if you’re living in the U.S.
If you want more cores in a MacBook Pro and don’t want to pay the full price, you’ll have to wait for the 15-inch models to be placed on the refurbished store.
