Apple Begins Selling Refurbished iMac Pro Models at 15% Discount

Apple today added refurbished iMac Pro models to its online store for the first time in the United States and Canada.

refurbished imac pro
A selection of 8-core, 10-core, and 18-core configurations are available with various storage, memory, and graphics options, priced between $4,249 and $8,159 in the United States, reflecting savings of 15 percent. All of the refurbished configurations are currently available with next-day delivery.

The base model iMac Pro with a 3.2GHz eight-core Intel Xeon W processor, 32GB of DDR4 ECC memory, 1TB of SSD storage, and Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics is available for $4,249, for example, compared to $4,999 brand new.

Apple released the iMac Pro in December 2017 as a powerful, top-of-the-line workstation designed for professional users with demanding workflows, such as advanced video and graphics editing, virtual reality content creation, and real-time 3D rendering. Benchmarks have proven it is by far the fastest Mac ever.

The all-in-one desktop workstation has a 27-inch Retina 5K display within a sleek Space Gray enclosure, and can be configured with up to an 18-core Intel Xeon processor, up to 4TB of SSD storage, up to 128GB of ECC RAM, and up to an AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 graphics processor with 16GB of HBM2 memory.

Apple says all refurbished iMac Pro models are thoroughly inspected, tested, cleaned, and repackaged with a new box and all manuals and accessories, including a Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Magic Mouse 2 in Space Gray. Apple's refurbished products are generally indistinguishable from brand new ones.

Any refurbished iMac Pro model comes with Apple's standard one-year warranty effective on the date the computer is delivered. The warranty can be extended to up to three years from the original purchase date with AppleCare+ for iMac, at a cost of $169 in the United States, but the plan is unavailable in Canada.

All in all, customers can save between $750 and $1,440 on an iMac Pro, but better deals are sometimes offered by third-party resellers. Micro Center stores, for example, have twice offered $1,000 off the base model iMac Pro.

(Thanks, Alex!)

At those prices, refurbished or not, on sale or not, you either need to be making money from the machine or have disposable funds to justify the expense. Great product. Great performance regardless of the lack of upgradability. But this is a niche market machine that most of us have no justification for.
It's almost as if the iMac Pro is targeted at pros or something...

I am pissed that my iMac Mid-2011 27" (3.4 GHz i7, 16 GB RAM) just had a graphic card failure, but because the model just a few weeks ago got classified as "vintage", authorized Apple service partners are not allowed to service it, and there are few or virtually no spare parts.

Mind you that my iMac costed about 3000 USD at purchase and the specs are still quite good. The computer could still have tangible value, but because Apple has made sure that it's obsolete, the value pretty much is zero.

While I knew that iMacs are pretty much non-upgradeable, I didn't know that they would also be non-repairable.

If you make a hefty surplus by using an iMac Pro (which I'm sure is the intent), and you are willing to throw it away in 7 years, feel free to invest. But I'm never buying an iMac again, frankly. Maybe a Mac Pro.

Apple claimed to spend 6 years developing HomePod and look how freaking great that product came out. May even be able to pair 2 for "stereo like" sound soon. ;)
