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.

(Thanks, Nick!)

Seems a bit steep.

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?

They really just don't see the mac as a growth sector anymore, they are just banking on the loyal fan base to pay outrageous margins for inferior hardware.

I love my MBA, but I refuse to buy another mac until I see a value for my dollar. Having iMessage on my desktop isn't worth 2k.

Spectacularly expensive. Spectacularly crap.

Apples problem is that macOS is neglected as well. If you talk stable software....it's a draw between my macOS and windows 10 install tons . And that means I get so many more spiny beach balls these days. Maybe this year my macs will wake from sleep without issues ...


Yes, macOS was the one trump card the Mac had left but it's been eroded in quality and stability the past few years as it's become an afterthought, a poor cousin to iOS. I long for the days when it was the best desktop, the best GUI, the best UNIX, the best everything.
