Update: Apple is now selling certified refurbished 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro models. Check out the entire selection of available models right here.
Apple has refreshed its refurbished storefront this morning to now include 2018 MacBook Pros for the first time. Inventory is primarily centered around the latest 13-inch models with prices starting at $1,529. A high-end maxed-out 13-inch model is on sale for $3,139, which is good for $560 off the regular price, marking today’s biggest savings. Most of these deals work out to be around 15% off the new condition price. In recent months we’ve seen as much as $200 off 13-inch models and up to $300 off 15-inch configurations. If you don’t mind going the refurbished route (and you shouldn’t) there are some notable savings to be had. More details below.
Apple ships all refurbished products with a standard one-year warranty. Shoppers can opt to add AppleCare+ for Mac which costs $269 on the entry-level 13-inch models. You can learn more about Apple’s refurbishment process on this landing page. We are expecting to see even deeper discounts on MacBook Pro throughout the holiday season. Keep it locked to our Black Friday guide for all of the best deals in November and December.
Every Mac comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary support. AppleCare+ for Mac extends your coverage to three years from your AppleCare+ purchase date and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a service fee of $99 for screen damage or external enclosure damage, or $299 for other damage, plus applicable tax. In addition, you’ll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone.
