Following new product announcements from Apple this morning — including new MacBook Air and iPad Pro models — Apple freshened its refurbished lineup online with various price drops ranging from new low prices on the MacBook Air to steep discounts on the 11-inch iPad Pro.
Macs are remarkably future-proof. After years of use, assuming they’ve been well cared for, they can still hang with the latest in the line. And if you refurbish them, there’s no telling how long their useful life can be, so getting a refurb is a great way to score a solid machine at a crazy-low price.
Back Market, a marketplace dedicated to pre-owned electronics, is now offering a range of iPhone models refurbished by Apple. Before going to Back Market, Apple checks over these units and always replaces some of the components that typically wear out.
In addition, this reseller refurbishes iPhones itself, just not as thoroughly. These sell for considerably less, however.
MyPhones Unlimited, the company behind our successful iPhone buyback program, is offering Cult of Mac readers $50 off refurbished MacBook Airs. These laptops come in the original box with the original Apple charger. Each refurbished laptop undergoes a thorough 30-point inspection and comes with a 60-day warranty with hassle-free returns.
Apple began offering 4G-enabled smartwatches last fall, but it seems people don’t return them very often. It’s taken this long to build up a large enough supply of refurbished Apple Watch LTE units that they can finally be offered to the public.
Those who don’t mind a refurb can get this wearable at 15 percent off the regular price.
