Refurbished MacBook Pros shine brightly in this week’s top bargains, along with two of the best Apple accessory offers we’ve ever seen. Read on to see the week’s best Apple deals.

Refurb MacBook Pro Ivy i5 dual-core 13-inch laptop for $579

Altatac via Walmart offers the refurbished MacBook Pro Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 2.5GHz 13.3-inch LED-backlit laptop in silver for $579 with free shipping. That’s $310 under the cost of a new model and the lowest total price we’ve seen for this laptop in any condition.

Features include an Intel Core i5-3210m 2.5GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 13.3-inch 1,280×800 LED-backlit LCD, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, SuperDrive, AirPort Extreme (802.11n wireless), Bluetooth 4.0, SDXC card slot, FaceTime camera, Thunderbolt port and Mac OS X.

Note: No warranty information is available. Also, this item may show signs of wear, such as scratches on the case and hairline cracks that don’t affect usability.

Apple iPad Pro 13-inch Smart Cover for $24

Everyone knows the iPad is nothing without its impact-resistant cover. Best Buy offers the Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch Smart Cover in white for $23.99. Opt for in-store pickup to avoid the $5.48 shipping charge. That’s the lowest price we could find by $30. It folds into various positions and features an automatic wake/sleep function.

Refurb MacBook Pro i7 Quad 15-inch Retina laptop for $899

Another deal for those willing to risk going off-warranty, ExperCom offers the refurbished 4.5-pound MacBook Pro Ivy Bridge Core i7 2.3GHz 15-inch Laptop with Retina display for $999. Coupon code “fall” cuts it to $899. With $11.50 for shipping, that’s best deal now by $195 for a refurb, and the lowest total price we’ve seen for this model.

This MacBook Pro features an Intel Core i7-3615QM 2.3GHz Ivy Bridge quad-core processor, 15.4-inch 2,880×1,800 LED-backlit display, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 1GB graphics, 802.11n wireless, Thunderbolt, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, FaceTime 720p webcam, and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Deal ends October 1.

Noot 6-foot braided MFi Lightning cable for $8

Now that Apple devices are losing all but their Lightning connections, it’s a good idea to have a few extra cables around. Amazon offers its Prime members the Noot 6-foot braided, MFi-certified Lightning cable for $7.99 with free shipping. (Non-Prime customers can spend $49 or more to qualify for free shipping; otherwise, it costs an extra $6.14.)

That’s $5 off and the lowest total price we could find. It’s an exceptional price for a braided, MFI-certified cable of this length.
