Apple Adds 2017 15-Inch MacBook Pro Models to Refurbished Store

Apple today updated its online store for refurbished products to add a selection of 15-inch MacBook Pro models equipped with a Touch Bar, which is the first time the new machines have been available through the refurbished store since their June 2017 release.

As of the writing of this article, Apple's refurbished store has six different 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro models available for purchase at a discount of approximately 15 percent.

The base model 15-inch MacBook Pro with 16GB RAM, 256GB of storage, and a Radeon Pro 555 graphics card is available for $2,039, for example, a discount of $360 off the price when purchased new. Both Silver and Space Gray models are available in a handful of different configurations.

All of these machines are listing shipping estimates of 30 days, which may be in error as they have just recently been added to the refurbished store.

The addition of 15-inch MacBook Pro models to the refurbished store comes two months after Apple began offering refurbished versions of the 13-inch 2017 MacBook Pro models.

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.

That's probably the one I bought last month and returned the next day because it couldn't even hold my iTunes music library without having to carrying around an external 2TB drive. I never even got to my photo library. Useless.
If only there were some way to know ahead of time that your 2TB of data wouldn't fit on a laptop with a 256GB drive.

if refurbish going for that price might as well pick up a brand new one
Why? An Apple refurbished item is just as good as a new one. Same 1 year warranty and blemish free. You just don't get a pretty white box with it; You get a plain brown box. Is the pretty white retail box worth $360?

I've never had any problems buying from Apple's refurb store.

I hate it when that happens, I bought a 2 seater sports car and got home and my girlfriend asked where the kids and dog would go. I felt so let down by the supplier.

Still too much! Their entry level MBP 15" should start at $1,999 brand new.
