Apple Now Selling Refurbished 2023 Mac Studio Models

The entry-level ‌M2‌ Max ‌Mac Studio‌ with 32GB RAM and 512GB SSD is available for $1,699, which is a $300 discount off of the standard $1,999 price. The base model ‌M2‌ Ultra machine with 64GB RAM and a 1TB SSD is priced at $3,399, a $600 discount off of the regular $3,999 price.

Apple is offering multiple ‌M2‌ Ultra and ‌M2‌ Max ‌Mac Studio‌ models for purchase at the current time, and all of them offer similar ~15 percent discounts off of the standard prices. Discounts range from $300 to $1300 depending on configuration and starting price.

The 2023 ‌Mac Studio‌ models were introduced in June 2023 alongside the Mac Pro models. They offer ‌Mac Pro‌ performance and the same ‌M2‌ Ultra chip in a more compact package.

All of Apple's refurbished Macs are close to identical to new products. They are subject to a refurbishment process that includes full functionality testing, with any defective modules replaced, as well as a thorough cleaning and inspection. Refurbished products are eligible for AppleCare+ and have the same 14-day return period as new Apple devices.

Refurbished Macs are great. Just like new. I've bought my last several Macs refurbished and thankful for the savings.

We are living in the best times now, all this computing power and we don’t know what to do with it. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time with some of these computers and show people how far we’ve reached.

Wow the base model with 1TB is an absolutely great deal !

But I paid 15% less for an M2 Pro Mac Mini, with basically a worse GPU, no front ports and slower memory. The Mac Mini is even more of a killer deal.

Are these the ones that were returned for being whiny?
When you say whiny, do you mean they'd sit on your desk and irritate you by blurting out at random and key intervals. "Couldn't you get me a stable power supply?", "jeeze you've got no design aesthetic". "Call this a desk!!". "Your lighting is obnoxious and BTW you've spilt food on your t-shirt". "No don't put your coffee cup on me you bozo. You're going to spill it". "You're a slob, you haven't done the dishes for two weeks". "You're ugly!!!".

I admit that would probably cause me to sell it too.

The M2 Studios still have the fan/coil whine, right?
