A refurbished MacBook from the Apple Refurbished Store is indistinguishable from new, but costs up to 15% less. This is why we’re particularly excited to see new listings for the latest MacBook Pro with the M1 chip, which has up to £230 off depending on the configuration you buy.
While we can’t see the MacBook Air with M1, you can find both the 256GB and 512GB MacBook Pros on offer. Here’s what you can save:
The discount makes the 512GB option cheaper than the 256GB option were you to buy brand new. If you do buy new, the cheapest price around for the MacBook Pro with M1 is from Amazon and AO, where the 256GB option costs £1,189 and the 512GB option costs £1,369.
There are a plethora of reasons to buy refurbished from the Apple. Not only are the devices cheaper, they are all rigorously tested (and cleaned) to look and work just like new (by Apple’s own standards!). Any parts or components that aren’t up to scratch gets replaced.
Shoppers are also protected with a one-year warranty and 90 days of tech support. If you do run into any trouble, you can get the MacBook repaired for free. Read more about Apple’s Certified Refurbished promise.
The M1 chip, introduced last November, promises up to 2.8 times faster CPU speeds, 5 times faster GPU speeds, and up to 11 times faster machine learning performance.
This translates to super-fast performance across high-res photo and video editing, gaming, and software development. You also get an extended battery life, thanks to a more efficient chip.
The M1 is the first of Apple’s Silicon chip range, marking the firm’s departure from Intel. Read more about the M1 chip.
