    Generally the refurbished models offered by Apple are either the same model as current or perhaps one model back. You would have to check the model number of the specific refurbished item you are looking at to be certain. Either way, you would get something that is factory certified and really no different from a brand new one.

    Refurbished models are simply models that were sold and had a problem. They get returned to the factory where the problem is identified and fixed. They are tested to be sure they work as a new one would and then offered for sale at a reduced price. I have gotten several refurbished items and have never had a problem with them.
