What is refurbished?

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the meaning of refurbished is "made to look new again by work such as painting, repairing, and cleaning." But when applied to computers and laptops, its meaning differs a little. It's more than just fixing up an old device. When refurbishing Apple devices, it's about professionally revising used hardware.

During the process, old data is removed and the device cleaned. The hardware is fully tested and repaired where necessary. This way, used products are fit for a second life and are far more sustainable, while retaining the same quality as a new device. Re-using old hardware is not only the best option for the environment, it is also much cheaper than buying new.

Why should I buy refurbished?

A refurbished MacBook is not per definition inferior to a brand new MacBook. In fact, the quality is the same, only the exterior can differ. A good reason to buy refurbished is because it is much cheaper than new. The prices of a refurbished MacBook can be up to 70% cheaper. 

A refurbished MacBook will last for years, you don't have to worry about that. Apple provides its devices with new software updates and operating systems for many years. On average, a MacBook will be able to run the latest macOS for 8 years. With this in mind, a MacBook that was initially released in 2020, can still run new macOS updates in 2028. iPhones and iPads can run iOS and iPadOS updates for 5 years on average. 

Refurbished status

All of our products are fully tested and their quality guaranteed. They come with a standard 2 year warranty. While the refurbishing process and results are the same over all devices, they can certainly look different. To give you an implication of what to expect, all devices are rated with an indication of the cosmetic state. 

A device that is used, good as new has only minor signs of use. These are barely distinguishable from new. There are no scratches on the screen and other signs of use are barely visible. 

Products that have minor visible cosmetic wear can have few shallow scratches and/or minor dents in the casing. From a distance, these signs of use are barely visible. 

A device that has clearly visible cosmetic wear has deeper scratches or dents in the casing. These signs of use are clearly visible, but won't disturb you while using the device. Scratches and dents are mostly found on the corners of the devices. The screen is likely to have signs of use as well.
