There's sometimes a stigma against purchasing refurbished electronics because many companies don't have rigorous quality control programs for refurbished devices, but that's not the case with Apple. Some companies may sell refurbished items with cosmetic defects and other issues, but Apple's refurbished products available from its online store are \"as good as new\" products, but with a lower price tag.
Every refurbished iPad, iPhone, Mac, Apple TV, or Apple accessory Apple sells goes through a certification process that ensures full functionality, and with iOS devices, each one gets a new outer shell and a fresh battery. All refurbished products come with a 1-year warranty, just like new devices. Note that you can get refurbished or used Apple products at steeper discounts from third-party retailers, but it's only Apple that offers a rigorous refurbishment process and inspection.
As long as you can wait a few months to pick up an Apple product, there's virtually no downside to purchasing a refurbished model. The quality is superb and the price savings can be worth the wait. This guide covers all the ins and outs of refurbished products, from release timelines and prospective price savings to warranty information and stock information.
Apple repairs these products and replaces all faulty parts before offering them for sale again through the online refurbished site. Refurbished products are only available through Apple's website and are not offered within retail stores.
The stock on Apple's refurbished site is based on what people return or have replaced. That means the refurbished products that are available are constantly fluctuating and are only available in very limited quantities. It also means many of the Macs that are available may not be stock machines, instead featuring various upgrades to hardware like RAM, SSD storage, and processors.
Refurb Tracker lets you select specific product categories to watch, with notifications available through email or an RSS feed. Refurb Tracker and Refurb.me both support tracking refurbished products in all of the countries where Apple has a refurbished online store, and they're excellent resources for finding the exact refurbished device that you want.
In most cases, Apple's refurbished prices aren't going to beat the discounts you can get from unofficial third-party sites that offer refurbished machines, but they are going to be more affordable than new machines. Apple's refurbished discounts also often beat sale prices on newer products available from third-party retailers like Best Buy, MacMall, and Amazon.
Apple says its refurbishment procedures use the same basic technical guidelines that are used during its Finished Goods testing procedures for retail products. Here's the general refurbishing process Apple follows:
A refurbished product sold by Apple is nearly indistinguishable from a new product, aside from the packaging. Apple's refurbished products come in a plain white box with an \"Apple Certified Refurbished\" guarantee and the name of the product on the front. In contrast, Apple's retail packaging often includes eye-catching images of the product.
Apple sells all of its refurbished products with the same one-year warranty and 90 days of phone support that it offers with all of its standard retail products. That means if something goes wrong with a refurbished product during the first 365 days after you buy it, Apple will fix the issue at no cost or offer a free replacement.
AppleCare+ can be purchased alongside refurbished products, extending the warranty period. For Macs, purchasing the AppleCare+ Protection Plan extends warranty coverage and telephone support to a full three years (or more with a subscription), regardless of the year the Mac was originally released. Apple will fix any manufacturing issues that arise, including faulty batteries that retain less than 80 percent charge. Two incidents of accidental damage per year are also included.
When a new Apple product is released, it does not become available for purchase from the refurbished store for several months. Most products are available after a three or four month wait, but refurbished versions of products with supply constraints may not be available for six to nine months after launch.
Refurbished products can be shipped directly to your home address or shipped to a local Apple Store for in-store pickup. Refurbished models are never in stock for same-day pickup at a retail store because they come from a central warehouse, but shipping often takes just two or three days.
Apple's online refurbished store is the only source for official refurbished products certified by Apple. No third-party retailers are permitted to sell machines that have been guaranteed by Apple's refurbishing process.
MAC is a very popular and expensive high-end makeup brand that many people try to purchase for less than the retail price. In order to find great deals on makeup, many look on eBay.com to purchase makeup at a discounted rate without realizing that there are sellers who try to make money by selling counterfeit MAC products. These fake products are not only a rip-off but the ingredients can also be harmful to your skin. If you suspect that something is fake, do not use it for the sake of your own health and report it directly to MAC.
There's nothing wrong with buying refurbished products. As long as you do your research and understand the pros and cons, it's possible to find some great deals that offer better value than a new device.
In addition, we provide full support for a number of products when used on the Mac in virtualized environments including Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion. We also support these products via Boot Camp, part of Mac OS X that lets you install and run Windows (and Windows-based applications) on a Mac.
While Inventor or Revit does not currently have a native Macintosh version, you can still install Revit and Inventor on a Mac in virtualized environments including Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion. We also support these products via Boot Camp, part of Mac OS X that lets you install and run Windows (and Windows-based applications) on a Mac.
Search MAC cosmetics on Ebay and you will find a variety of discounted products. This is another great spot to find cheap MAC makeup at one of the highest discounts. (Tip: While searching these products, be careful to make sure the product is 100% authentic before placing a bid.)
Macs have been associated with high-powered graphic design for some time. This is due to the design of the products themselves. Apple products are visually appealing, and are sometimes purchased for how they look. There are tools and apps for graphic design that are also Mac-only. Most of the big names in design software are now made for Windows, but the perception remains that Macs are what you need for graphic design. Read more here about Mac products and graphic design.
Because there are fewer Apple products compared to PCs, there are fewer viruses created for OS X. In addition, because Apple tightly controls the software on its devices, there is much less bloatware installed on new systems.
Macs tend to have new innovations incorporated into their design faster than PCs. Because there is just one manufacturer of Apple products, they can move more quickly when there is a hardware innovation like USB-C.
Because Mac users are a minority, Apple has been careful to make sure that their products can work with Windows software. As a result, Macs can read drives that are formatted for Windows and can often convert Windows software to something that is compatible with OS X.

1. M.A.C. was founded when a makeup artist and a photographer became frustrated by how bad most makeup seemed to read in photos. In 1984, beauty salon owner Frank Angelo and photographer Frank Toskan created M.A.C. cosmetics in their kitchens to fulfill their professional makeup needs. They decided to package their products in black pots instead of compacts, and that quickly became the company's signature.
The film's makeup artist Judy Chin used almost entirely M.A.C. products to achieve Portman's freaky swan makeup. She rimmed Portman's inner eyes with M.A.C. Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved, painted M.A.C. Pro Chromaline Eye-Liner Gel/Crème in Black Black all over and slightly under her eyes, and thinly drew M.A.C. Pro Chromaline Eye-Liner Gel/Crème in Basic Red under Portman's lower lashes. (Heads up to anyone already thinking about next year's Halloween costume plans.) 59ce067264
