Connor S. Bought: MacBook 12" (2016) - QWERTY - English (US) 2 months ago

Top notch! Shipping was stupid fast. The standard shipping was 2nd Day Air. Shipped on Tuesday and arrived by noon on Thursday. Packaging was/is always a concern of mine, we all know how little couriers care about the packages they're delivering. It was in a box about 1.5x the size of the computer ...

I actually love this computer, has worked great for me since i have received it, If i am being honest i do have one key that didn't work when the computer arrived but its the one under the delete button that no one uses but i would not go through the hassle of returning it to be fixed for just that....

Back Market shipped this Macbook to me so quickly, and I am overly satisfied with it. I love the size and look, it’s practically new, and I like it way better than my old laptop that was more expensive. It has already been used for gaming, school, and shopping. :)

Ordered two items for the first time from BackMarket. Super pleased with this little Macbook. Started right up, no issues other than a sticky "j" key. Fast shipping. Excellent condition. I was expecting it to be rougher around the edges, but nope! I wasn't as pleased with the other order, but I will...

The refurbished MacBook: A high-end computer for a great price

As a software developer, Apple took every user into consideration by providing a range of laptop devices that vary in every sense. Smaller bodies, faster speeds, greater storage spaces, light-weight transport, different memory storage--all things taken into consideration.

Apple makes an incredible product, regardless of what it is. Between their quality devices and Back Market’s thorough and reliable refurbishing of devices, investing in a used MacBook laptop is not only a great choice financially, but a solid option long-term. High-end Retina displays, durable aluminum casing, sleek fit, and fast processors are just some of the pros of the MacBook line. Back Market offers 30-day money-back guarantees and a 12-month warranty, which almost matches that offered by Apple and their new devices.

This means it’s not a question of whether a refurbished MacBook is a good purchase, but rather, which cheap MacBook is perfect for you. And make sure to check the specifications of each MacBook to figure out which device offers the most bang for your buck.

Which cheap Apple MacBook should I buy here?

The MacBook line of Apple laptops can be broken down into three basic lines: The MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro. Within each of these devices is a range of RAM, processor speeds, memory storage, and sizes.

MacBook: Having debuted in 2015, the cheap MacBook Retina is a great laptop when refurbished by reliable technicians, like those working with Back Market. With a 12-inch Retina screen, it’s a great laptop for extended use. Most are available with 8GB RAM and typically around 256 to 512GB of storage.

This is a great device for users who need basic functionality like Pages, Numbers, or Keynotes. It’s an easy laptop to travel with if you work at coffee shops or libraries. Cost-wise, this cheap Apple laptop sits in between the Air and the Pro.

MacBook Air: The cheap MacBook Air is supremely lightweight, which makes it easy to transport. It’s a great option if you spend a good amount of time traveling for work or pleasure and need to have access to your laptop. It’s typically the cheapest of the three laptops, given they are of the same year (but of course, a new MacBook Air will likely cost more than a 5-year old used MacBook Pro).

Typically, the Air will have less RAM and storage than a used MacBook Pro, largely due to its size, at a 13.3-inch display. As long as you don’t need to be downloading or saving a ton of material to your hard drive, it’s the most frugal of the three options.

MacBook Pro: The Pro is the highest end of the MacBook series.  It is typically the more popular of the three models if you have the finances for it. The 2015 models and later have the touch bar technology, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and 13 or 16-inch displays.

Finding a deal on your refurbished MacBook laptop

While each laptop is going to have its own differences and specifics to offer since they’re all refurbished and sold through Back Market, there are a few guarantees buyers can expect:

-Around 80% of the original lifetime battery load

-Factory resetting

-Fully refurbished and tested

-30-day money-back guarantee

-Full 12-month warranty to protect from defects

-Honest, specific, and in-depth rating of the condition of the laptop

-Average of 50% savings on MacBooks (depending on year and model)

Try out one of the many available options of refurbished MacBooks sold at a great deal and feel confident in your purchase.
