  • Best Answer:

    I just purchsed a refurbished Mac Book Pro + Apple care and it's essentially like buying new, but I saved over $400

    The Apple representative said they replace the outer shell and the battery (so there are no blemish or battery life concerns). He also said that a large percentage of the "refurb" products are actually new (not used), just undelivered.

    No cons that I can see.

  • The gentleman below is incorrect about the cosmetic condition of Apple Refurbished products. When they arrive, they are indistinguishable from brand new product.

  • I think refurbished is the way to go. You save a lot of money and if there are problems Apple will take care of it.
