Apple has started selling refurbished MacBooks and Mac Minis made last year. Similar to other refurbished Apple devices, the company assures that their quality is on par with the devices sold on shelves. But are they really worth buying?

As seen on the official Apple refurbished store, the available MacBooks and Mac Airs have their prices up from around $1,000 to $2,000 each. Their specs and built-in storage are also good as they have up to 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i7, which is good for processing intensive programs like large business apps and video games. However, the prices of the brand new versions on Amazon is very similar, which somehow defeats the purpose of buying a refurbished MacBook. You can check the available refurbished Apple laptops on their official site.

While opting for a MacBook may not be a great choice, refurbished Mac Minis are rare and could be worth every penny as they cost lower than $1,000. As of now, Apple has assured customers that their refurbished devices are as good as the ones freshly sold on shelves and even come with a one-year warranty. Aside from North America, these offers are available in the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Belgium, Germany and France.

Previously, Apple also sold a fresh set of iPhone SEs and even offered an Apple Watch. More than the reselling, speculations also circulated that Apple sold some clearance iPhone SEs to potentially gauge the interest for an IPhone SE sequel.

Meanwhile, the Apple Watch offers were for those who had problems with their first-generation devices, allowing old watches to be traded for a discounted offer for a specific Apple Watch 2 device.

In other news, Apple has yet to talk about their next device release. In CES 2019, Apple only talked about providing more services and not about unveiling new devices. Moreover, we’re mostly seeing Apple focus more on selling their older devices and looking back on older Apple design choices recently. For now, we’ll have to wait for more announcements from Apple to find out their next move.
