Apple already selling refurbished MacBook Pros for $350 off

If you have been holding out for a good deal on the latest MacBook Pros, now might be your best chance. Apple is now selling refurbished M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook models on its Certified Refurbished store, as reported by MacRumors.

The official Apple store is still the best place to get refurbished Apple products. Currently, you can get 10% off on a number of MacBook Pro models, a savings of $200 to $350. That isn’t a ton of savings (especially compared to third-party resellers), but it also comes paired with Apple’s one-year warranty.

However, there is more to Apple’s refurbished programs than just the savings. Apple’s refurbished MacBooks come with any manuals, cables, and charging bricks that originally came with the device. That’s not always a guarantee when you’re buying other refurbished products. Apple also claims to tess all of the products to make sure everything is working properly.

Apple’s refurbished products also qualify for Apple Care+. So if you’re worried about a previously defective device having issues in the future, Apple Care+ guarantees it will get the same treatment as any other Apple device.

Currently, the site has several options for refurbished M1 Pro and M1 Max models. The entry-level 14-inch M1 Pro MacBook comes in at $1,800, which saves you $200 right off the bat. That model also has 16GB of unified memory and a 512GB SSD.

On the highest end, you can get a 16-inch M1 Max MacBook Pro for $3,150, a savings of $350 off the MSRP. That model comes equipped with 32GB of unified memory and 1TB SSD.

In our review of the MacBook Pro, we praised the computer’s incredible performance and beautiful display. Those and many other reasons earned it our Editor’s Choice award. The only real complaint we had was with the distracting notch. However, that didn’t change the fact that it’s the best MacBook Apple has made in years.

The Certified Refurbished store does have limited quantities, so these models will probably sell quickly.

Here’s why Apple’s M3 MacBook chip could destroy its rivals
Apple's M2 MacBook Air is super thin and light.

Apple’s next round of M2 Macs is only a few weeks from being announced at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), but a new leak has already revealed the top-secret follow-up that is due out later this year, long after the WWDC dust has settled.

That’s because Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman has just spilled the beans on Apple’s M3 chip line-up, including hardware specifications for the M3 Pro that will likely find its way into the next MacBook Pro laptop. It’s the first time we’ve seen this level of detail for what could be one of the most exciting chips in recent years.

I don’t want a touchscreen MacBook, but this feature could convince me

Rumors that Apple is making a touchscreen Mac are about as old as the Steve Jobs adage that touchscreen laptops suck and make your arm ache. But a fresh patent shows Apple is still working on the idea -- and this time the company might have finally perfected it.

As spotted by Patently Apple, the patent describes how a touchscreen Mac could incorporate haptic feedback into its display. That means you could get small tactile taps every time you press on the screen, which would subtly let you know that your actions have been recognized.

It's been an exciting couple of years of new Mac releases.

Last year we got the redesigned M2 MacBook Air. The year before that was the M1 Max MacBook Pro. And this year? Rumor is we're getting a 15-inch MacBook Air. That's right -- yet another MacBook for the lineup.
