While new Apple MacBook M1 deals are slowly creeping down in sales prices across many vendors recently, we think the official Apple-certified refurbished is a compelling choice right now.

For example, while new MacBook Air M1's have been reduced to $949 at most vendors (opens in new tab) recently, you can save yourself an extra $100 (opens in new tab) (for a total of $150) by opting to go for a certified refurbished product. Likewise, the Apple MacBook Pro 13 M1 is going for just $1,099 currently (opens in new tab) - a total saving of $200 and $100 cheaper than Amazon's price (opens in new tab).

Refurbished. Yes, we know, that's a word that carries a lot of stigma but hear us out, it's actually a really good option - and not just to save money either. By buying through the official Apple certified refurbished (opens in new tab) program you're not just guaranteed to get a device that's under one year of warranty, but one that's in fully 'like-new' working condition. That means full servicing using official Apple replacement parts where applicable, full inspection and certification by Apple itself, and even 90 days of free technical support. 

There is also a real, often hidden benefit to considering refurbished products too. Consumer electronics often feature many toxic components and often take a lot of energy to produce. By going with refurbished Apple MacBook deals you're really helping to offset that associated cost to the environment. So, not only will you be saving yourself some cash here, but you'll also be doing your part in saving the planet!
