Refurbished 2023 Macs Coming Soon to Apple's Online Store

Apple this week added a grayed-out "2023" label to its refurbished Macs page (only visible in a desktop browser) in the U.S., suggesting it will soon begin selling refurbished models of the new MacBook Pro and Mac mini machines released in January.

M2 MacBook Pro and Mini Feature
The latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are available with M2 Pro or M2 Max chips, providing up to 20% faster performance and up to 30% faster graphics compared to the previous generation. The laptops can be configured with up to 96GB of RAM, compared to 64GB previously. Other new features and improvements include Wi-Fi 6E, an HDMI 2.1 port with 8K external display support, and an extra hour of battery life.

The new Mac mini can be configured with the M2 chip and two Thunderbolt 4 ports, or the M2 Pro chip and four Thunderbolt 4 ports.

Apple's refurbished Macs are typically discounted by 15% compared to the equivalent brand new models. For brand new models, pricing starts at $1,999 for the 14-inch MacBook Pro, at $2,499 for the 16-inch MacBook Pro, and at $599 for the Mac mini, but prices increase significantly depending on the specifications chosen.

Apple tests, inspects, cleans, and repackages all refurbished Macs to ensure they are fully functional and in good condition, and Apple's refurbished products are covered by a one-year limited warranty and eligible for AppleCare+ coverage.

The discount used to be 15%, it seems to have dropped to 10% for any models within the past year or so.
Soon they will be full price but with the Apple polishing cloth included :(

This seems to be quicker than usual at less than 4 months after release of these new M2 models.

Thanks, YouTube unboxers/reviewers. Keep up the good work! ?

They also replace the battery. I’ve purchased several refurbished machines over the years and have never been disappointed.

15% off list price for base 14" MBP M2 makes it $1,699.15. That's barely better than the $1,749 ('') you can get it for new right now.

20% off is where it should be. Wishful thinking...

For Teachers, Students, Veterans or anyone else who gets the 10% discount through the Apple Store, stacking on top of the refurbished price usually offers substantial savings. For 14" Pro: $1799 New > $1530 Refurb
There's no stacking education discount on refurbs. I just checked on 2022 13" MBA with M2.

Through Education site: $1,079.00 ; Save $20.00 from $1,099.00

Through regular site: $1,079.00 ; Save $120 from $1,199.00
