It seems Apple isn’t waiting around for Black Friday deals, as it’s just announced price cuts for refurbished MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) and MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) models.

These are two of the best laptops you can buy right now, and come with a choice of powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. They are excellent productivity tools for anyone looking to do heavy-duty video editing or rendering - especially with these new lower prices.

A refurbished 14-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro is now being sold on Apple’s online store for $1,709 - a hefty saving of $290 compared to the price a new 14-inch MacBook Pro is usually sold for.

The high-end MacBook Pro 16-inch with M1 Max, which is also refurbished, now costs $2,989, a price cut of $510 from the usual figure.

In the UK, an entry-level refurbished 14-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro is now £1,619, a saving of £280. 

A refurbished 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro is £2,049, a saving of £350, and the model with the M1 Max (again, refurbished), is £2,819, a saving of £480.

As you can probably tell, it’s important to note that these are refurbished models, which means they may have been used before, or were demonstration products.

Is it safe to buy refurbished MacBooks?

Absolutely - as long as you buy from a trusted retailer. These MacBooks come from Apple itself, and that means they go through a thorough refurbishment process, which includes repairing, cleaning and testing to ensure the products work correctly and appear as good as new.

You also get a one-year warranty from Apple, so buying refurbished is a great way to get lower prices, and could even beat many of the MacBook Black Friday deals we’re expecting to see.
