Apple's Refurbished Store Now Offering 2019 MacBook Air and Low-End MacBook Pro

Apple today began adding the 13-inch MacBook Air and the lower-end 13-inch MacBook Pro to its online store for refurbished products in the United States, offering the machines at a discount for the first time.

Both of the new machines were first released in July 2019. The updated MacBook Air features a True Tone display, an updated butterfly keyboard that's more durable, and a lower price point.

As for the lower-end MacBook Pro, the July 2019 update brought Touch ID, a Touch Bar, faster processors, and a True Tone display to Apple's entry-level machines.

Pricing on the ‌MacBook Air‌ starts at $1,099 new and pricing on the entry-level MacBook Pro starts at $1,299. Apple is offering discounted prices on both stock and custom configurations, with multiple options available. Discounts are right around 15 percent off.

The refurbished store is a little bit wonky at this time and isn't listing the MacBook Pro and ‌MacBook Air‌ models in the proper order, but it should be cleared up soon. For now, buyers will need to browse through the dedicated MacBook Pro and ‌MacBook Air‌ sections to find specific machines.

Stock will fluctuate on a day to day basis, so it can take some time for various configurations to show up. Refurbished models ship out right away and are available for delivery later this week.

All of Apple's refurbished products go through a rigorous refurbishment process before being offered for sale, which includes inspection, repairs, cleaning, and repackaging. Like new purchases, refurbished Macs come with a one-year warranty that can be extended with an AppleCare+ purchase.

The problem with some of these "killer" deals: 8GB RAM and/or 128GB SSD that cannot be upgraded. :/

Junk keyboard, oh but slightly improved?

Still no sale, at any price.

I cannot believe this management team made Microsoft look good on hardware. Unforgivable.

There is no such thing as a "more reliable butterfly keyboard."

Refurbished Apple products are great because you know that they have been thoroughly inspected and tested - they still look brand new as well. Plus, you still get Apple’s one year limited warranty and the ability to add AppleCare+.

So that is the exact reason why the price drop ...
the coming of new Models ... but all in all anyone knows what date in Oct that the new stuff going to appear?
No. They always hit the referb section after a few months. Doesn’t mean they are getting new ones any time soon, they were just refreshed a few months ago. Apple has to do something about these returns somehow.

While we had been expecting a follow-up October Apple event focused on Mac and iPad announcements, it sounds like we might not be getting another event after all.
