The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and 13-inch model with standard function keys were added to Apple's refurbished store in March.

Apple says refurbished MacBook Pro models are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged, including the manuals and cables included in the box. The notebooks are each given a new serial number and undergo a final quality assurance inspection prior to being added to Apple's refurbished store.

A refurbished MacBook Pro comes with Apple's standard 1-year warranty effective on the date the notebook is delivered. The warranty can be extended to three years from the original purchase date with the AppleCare Protection Plan, which costs $279 for the 13-inch MacBook Pro in the United States.

Just purchased a new Non-Touch bar version and like it a lot . I think the Touch Bar has a lot of potential, but I couldn't justify the price point for something I likely wouldn't use.

Interesting...though I'm more interested in when Apple upgrades the MacBook Pros to the next chipset. They have some things to iron out with this product line, not the least of which is price.

Nice discount, but still overpriced. I'll wait for Kaby Lake.

Yep... same warranty. Apple reportedly checks them out pretty well and lots of people on here buy refurbs with no issues. I would not worry about it.
Apple refurbished MacBooks go through a very stringent and rigorous inspection. In some respects, you're less likely to have issues with a used MacBook over a new one.
