Apple Now Selling Refurbished 14-Inch M3 MacBook Pro

Apple today began offering refurbished versions of the 14-inch MacBook Pro with M3 chip, offering the machines at a discount for the first time since their October 2023 launch date.

Pricing on the refurbished 14-inch MacBook Pro models starts at $1,359, a $240 discount off of the original $1,599 starting price.

As of right now, Apple appears to be offering only MacBook Pro models with the standard M3 chip, with no M3 Pro or M3 Max machines available for purchase. Apple has several configurations listed with additional storage space.

Some of the entry-level models have already sold out, and availability will fluctuate as Apple restocks the refurbished store. Customers looking for a specific configuration should check back often.

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.

The fact you can config it to have 8GB Ram and 2TB Storage is laughable. You could certainly troll Apple by buying like 10 of those, with Thai keyboards, and then return them.

Anyone who is a bit leery of purchasing a refurb, I worked for Apple from 2004 to 2015 (retired now), and while not in the tech department, I spent many, many hours in the cafeteria with the techs who did both repairs and refurbs. Every one of them told me the same thing: Apple does QC checks on a small minority of new Macs. But they run a complete top to bottom analysis and if necessary, repair on every.single.refurb. They're warranted for a year, and they're eligible for the 3 year AppleCare warranty. Buy with confidence, and save a bundle.

8 doesn’t equate to 16, and I think people very quickly realised?

As someone who recently acquired the M3 Pro, I would not be upset if Apple suddenly decided to stop being greedy and made all Mac models come with 16/18GB memory and 512GB storage as standard.

Maybe that would take too much courage.

and single external monitor...

Some of these feel like buyer's remorse or joke configurations. Who buys 8GB/1TB or 8GB/2TB ('https://www.apple.com/shop/product/G1AA0LL/A/Refurbished-14-inch-MacBook-Pro-Apple-M3-Chip-with-8‑Core-CPU-and-10‑Core-GPU-Silver')?

The only thing inherently wrong with these specific refurb units is that they have 8GB of RAM, and I wouldn’t recommend that to anyone looking to do more than open Safari, and even then, it’s probably pushing it.
