Apple filter: New or refurbished?
posted by mjger to computers & internet (19 answers total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
Here's the deal. I am looking at a new Macbook Pro. I am a grad student so I can get a new one for $1799 or I can get a refurbished one for $1699. I read Apple's explanation of a refurbished machine, but that was of little help. I need real world experience.
An obvious pro to buying refurbished is the $100 savings. But for $100 more I can get a brand spankin' new MBP.
So, what do I do? Are the refurbished machines a good option? Has anyone had experience with a refurbished Apple? And if so, would you do it again? Regardless of what I buy I get a 1 year Apple warranty. (AppleCare is on the list, as well).
Thanks in advance, Mefites.
