Apple Adds 2016 MacBook Pro Without Touch Bar to Refurbished Store [Updated]

Apple recently updated its online store for refurbished products to add the 13-inch 2016 MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar, which was originally released in October of 2016.

There are a limited number of models available for purchase with various processor, storage, RAM configurations. Prices are discounted by up to $390, with Apple offering 12 to 16 percent off depending on a machine's configuration.

Only higher-end models with upgraded processors, RAM, and storage are available at the current time, but earlier today, at least one lower-end machine was available for purchase. Apple's refurbished stock fluctuates often, so if you're hoping to get a specific configuration, it's best to keep a close eye on the refurbished store.

13 and 15-inch 2016 MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar are not currently available from Apple's refurbished site, but could be added soon based on the availability of the non-Touch Bar model.

All of Apple's refurbished products go through a rigorous refurbishment process before being offered for sale, which includes inspection, repairs, cleaning, and repackaging. Refurbished Macs come with a one-year warranty that can be extended with an AppleCare purchase. For more tips on purchasing a refurbished product, make sure to check out our dedicated guide.

Update 3/20: Apple's refurbished store is also now offering 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro models for a 15 percent discount.

Is the pricing a joke? Is Apple really getting this smug?

I configured a Mini ITX tiny case (Thermaltake Core V1) with Core i7 6700K + MSI Mini ITX mobo + GTX 970 + Samsung 960 Pro + 32 GB DDR4 4000Mhz RAM + Modular PSU + Dell 24" 4K monitor for under $1500. Installed Sierra on it using few usb3 and nvidia tweaks in clover.
Done.
This hackintosh literally screams and tears apart any crap Apple has dished out in the last few years.

What is wrong Apple?
