Apple is now selling refurbished MacBook Pro models in its Refurbished Store.

Those who are looking to buy MacBook Pro models have the great option to buy refurbished models straight from the Apple Store. Cupertino has just added 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models in the store and has made them available in various storage configurations.

Buyers who proceed to the MacBook Pro section of the Certified Refurbished category in the Apple Store will find several models that were released earlier this year. Models range from the lower-priced 13.3-inch model running on a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor to the more expensive 15.4-inch model with a 2.6GHz six-core Intel Core i7 processor with Retina display.

Now, why should buyers choose refurbished units? Here are a few reasons:

They’re cheaper

All refurbished models are sold for a significantly discounted price compared to brand new models. The aforementioned 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with a Core i5 processor, the cheapest in the range, even sells for a lower price of $1,529 -- 15% cheaper than the original $1,799 price tag it had.

They possess the same specs as the brand new units

Every refurbished MacBook Pro model features the same specs as that of brand new units. They have the same chassis, processors, displays GPUs, memory and storage configurations, and so on. They are capable of doing what equivalent brand new models can do.

They’re like brand-new

These refurbished units are Apple-tested and inspected down to the last detail before being sold in the Apple Store. Cupertino tests them for full functionality and inspects them thoroughly, then replaces any defective module or component it finds. After testing and inspection, the units are then cleaned thoroughly and repackaged as if they’re brand new.

All refurbished units come with manuals and necessary cables, and are placed inside new boxes. Buyers won’t be able to tell the difference between a brand-new and refurbished model at first glance. They also come with a one-year warranty extendable via AppleCare+.

MacRumors noted that the new entry-level 1.4GHz 13-inch MacBook Pro released in July this year isn’t available in the refurbished store yet. Apple previously listed refurbished iMacs as well.
