Apple Begins Selling Refurbished 14-Inch MacBook Pro With M3 Chip in Canada and Europe

Apple today added the 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M3 chip to its certified refurbished store in Canada and select European countries, including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK, for the first time since the laptop debuted in October. Availability in the U.S. began earlier this month.

As usual for Apple's refurbished products, the refurbished 14-inch MacBook Pro models are discounted by approximately 15% compared to the equivalent brand new models. A variety of configurations and color options are available.

Apple says it puts refurbished Macs through a "thorough cleaning process and inspection" to ensure they are fully functional and in good condition, and they are covered by Apple's one-year limited warranty and eligible for extended AppleCare+ coverage. The laptops are repackaged in a plain white box with all accessories and manuals.

In our view, Apple's refurbished Macs are virtually indistinguishable from brand new ones, providing a good opportunity for savings directly from Apple. However, larger discounts are often available from resellers like Amazon.

I'm actually in the middle of the MacBook buying process right now with Best Buy using their Upgrade+ program. Funny thing is, I changed my mind from the Midnight MacBook Air (planning a return) to the $2k MacBook Pro since it was only a difference of $300 for a 120hz screen and a significantly better chip. So with Apple Refurbished, the $2k MacBook Pro M3 Pro is the same price as a 15" M2 MacBook Air with 512/16. That's crazy lmao

So does anyone know, are these returned items mostly the lowest core model with the minimum amount of RAM?

I might consider the Macbook Pro in 5 years or so

One thing i like about the pros over my m2 macbook air is the thickness…. It just feels far more sturdy. I haven't had an issue with my m2 macbook air at all… but it “feels” way more fragile than the Pro.

I handle it extra carefully lol especially when in my laptop bag

?
A Memory Foam Laptop Sleeve Laptop Case is very reasonable and you can fit that inside a laptop bag for extra protection against accidents as a FYI.

With 16gb it's only $ 200, fewer cores, only one fan and only 2 TB ports. The fact that so many 8-core devices are now ending up in refurbished stores is a symptom.
The difference between the display of the Air and the 14 Pro isn't so big that you should pay hundreds of dollars more for it.

I'm curious who the target buyer would be for an M3 MacBook Pro with only 8gb?
An oblivious cheapskate. No Pro model should ever have 8gb RAM in 2024.
