I was chatting to a friend who is an huge Apple addict, every product that they launch he has to have, and we were discussing the latest iPhone which he had just taken delivery of just a few days after launch having pre ordered it. I mentioned that I wanted a new laptop as my Apple Macbook Air was getting old and tiered but the cost of a 15″ MacBook was making me suffer the personality disorders of my old MacBook Air.
He recommended Apple certified refurbished, a section of Apple’s store where they sell refurbished and older models. They come direct from Apple and are sold at discounted prices, they come in unbranded packaging but with all the accessories and importantly the same 1 year warranty as normal product lines, and you can even extend the warranty with Apple care like any other product.
So I purchased an Certified refurbished Laptop direct from Apple’s website and I was so impressed with it when I wanted a new iPad Mini I didn’t hesitate to get a certified refurbished iPad mini 2 direct from Apple’s website – check out my YouTube video about the iPad –
