We can’t deny that Macs are expensive in fact, they are the most expensive computers available and buying a refurbished Macbook will be a wiser decision if you want to save money. The cheapest MacBook can set you back at least a thousand dollars with base specs and a few thousand if you add more RAM and Hard Drive space, which by the way, the latest models aren’t upgradable. However, many people like us can justify the premium associated with MacBooks because they last for years. That said, if you want to have a Mac but can’t afford a brand new one, the alternative is to buy a refurbished Macbook.
We have a couple of quick links to some of our top selling refurbished MacBooks, but you are more than welcome to browse through the entire store inventory. What's more, is that we continue to add new devices, and all purchases in Australia are shipped to your location. If you have a particular MacBook model or configuration in mind, you can search for it too.
Many people may use the term 'refurbished' and 'used' interchangeably when both words mean two very different things. Used MacBooks are generally ones that have been used for an unknown period before the owner decided to sell them. If anything, there is no guarantee that a used MacBook will run as expected, or you may encounter problems with it may be days or weeks later. If there is a problem, the Mac isn’t covered by any warranty, so your money is wasted, for lack of a better word. Most times a used MacBook was the daily driver of an employee or business owner.
While Refurbished MacBooks are pre-owned too, but they were sent back to Apple because something went wrong with them. Usually, they were sent back as part of the warranty and replaced with a new one. However, the problem was fixed, and Apple may have replaced the faulty part, which means that the unit is now working perfectly. Plus, the unit was cleaned and tested, including any cables with it.
When you purchase a MacBook from us, you can be assured that it has also been tested by our team. We make sure that every product sold is free from defects.

Unlike buying a used MacBook, we make sure that the battery health of our refurbished Macs is in “Pristine” condition. We check the battery and verify that it can reach at least 80% charging to ensure that they efficiently power your device. We know that most people buy a Macbook Pro, for the excellent battery life it offers.
Refurbished MacBooks are available in a couple of different grades. The grades usually correspond to the state of external wear. Generally, there are four grades that define the condition or the aesthetic appearance of the device:
Open Box – Now, these refurbished MacBooks are the most expensive, but are like new, with a flawless screen, body, battery and keyboard.
Like New – Generally, these MacBooks will have light scratches. The screen may have some sign of light wear but not entirely visible when being used. These happen to be some of our hottest sellers, especially ones from the previous year.
Grade A – You will generally notice that they might have light scratches.
Grade B – You will notice signs of use like scruffs, some scratches on the body and screen. However, these are also amongst the cheapest refurbished MacBooks.
While unlike buying a new MacBook Air or Pro, you can’t configure each device to your needs, we do offer quite a few options. For instance, we have the MacBook air in both 8GB and 16GB versions with 128GB and 256GB, all the way up to 512GB of storage.
Depending on the MacBooks you choose, the storage and RAM onboard will vary. However, you should be able to find most configurations. Plus, we have a different version of the MacBook Pro, dating all the way back to the classic 2015 model with the scissor-switch keyboard, without the touch bar. That said, we also have the latter models with butterfly switches, which offer a more comfortable yet albeit less tactile typing experience.
We make it a point to make sure that all refurbished MacBooks Air or Pro are packaged with the required accessories like cable & AC plug. Depending on the model, the type and accessories tend to vary. You can also order accessories individually if needed.
