Refurbished Apple Products are pre-owned Apple products that are placed into Apple's stringent Refurbishment Process prior to being offered for Sale.
Each unit is fully tested (including full burn-in testing); refurbished with replacement parts for any defective modules identified in testing; put through a thorough cleaning process and inspection; repackaged (including appropriate manuals, cables, new boxes, etc.), and given a new refurbished part number and serial number. Each unit is also placed into a Final QA inspection prior to being added to sellable refurbished stock. Refurbishment Procedures follow the same basic technical guidelines as Apple's Finished Goods testing procedures.
Supplies of Refurbished products are limited. For the latest information on product availability, call the Apple Store at 1-800-MY-APPLE (692-7753).
