Apple confirms an impressive special offer for the MacBook Pro
If you’re looking for a great deal on a new MacBook Pro, Apple has something interesting this week. But, you will need to be quick.
For the first time, Apple has included the M3 MacBook Pro in its refurbished section at a deep discount.
Although not “new in the box,” these laptops have been fully serviced by Apple, are offered with the same warranty as a brand new device, and are eligible for the same levels of AppleCare as a new laptop. Inventories are also limited, so if you’re looking for a specific model (such as an entry-level model), you’ll need to keep an eye on availability.
Of course, it’s all in the Apple Store and the new M3-powered MacBook Air is expected to debut in late March and is already introducing next-generation Apple Silicon with the M3 Pro and M3 Max MacBook Pro models for October.
If your only concern is reaching the maximum possible power and performance, you probably have an M3 Pro or M3 Max on your desk. While the M3 MacBook Pro doesn’t reach these levels, it will deliver a significant bump in performance over the capabilities of the M3 MacBook Air.
I’d argue that the difference in performance between the consumer-focused MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops isn’t enough to justify the difference in price (and there’s arguably little practical demand for the M3 MacBook Pro), but with a $240 discount by the Refurb Store in the list price At $1,599, there’s a good chance this refurbished model will make it a viable proposition.
We don’t yet know the price of the M3 MacBook Air, which is expected to launch in March. I expect the M2 MacBook Air to remain on sale but drop to its spell price of $999, allowing the M3 MacBook Air to launch at either $1,199 or $1,299, putting these refurbished models’ $1,359 price tag into context. The upcoming MacBook Air could be just $50.
Whether the benefits of the roughly 20 percent extra performance and the word “Pro” engraved on the cover are important enough for you to consider the oddly specced (but now slightly cheaper) M3 MacBook Pro is a personal decision… and it has the advantage of being available now.
