Dr. Chillo, 23 Jul 2018I have a Sony Vaio, it is already 6 years old and I use it every day even for light gaming and... moreMacs can run windows, too. No need to be restricted in windows. Apple has some great apps like iWork and iLife that you miss out.

I did upgrade my Vaio, added more RAM, an SSD, a bigger HDD, and it was NEW not refurbished one, way cheaper than a MacBook but much better, and Windows 10 works on it like a charm.
Or maybe DO NOT BUY any Apple device and more important DO NOT BUY A REFURBISHED apple.
just watch some of "Louis Rossmann" videos. this guy is awesome and he will show you what is inside of Apple devices and how they refurbish their devices. maybe you change your mind and if you are really so stupid to buy an Apple, at least you buy a seccond hand or a New one but not a refurbished one.
LostInTheReality, 22 Jul 2018Refurbished equals used. Simple as that.It is used but the parts the needs to be replace are replaced. its a different story as is used because damaged parts are not replaced.
What people don't know much about is apple's trade-in service. Where you give your broken (internally not physically) product to apple for a discount on refurbished items.
Apple gets a new device to refurbish, and gains profit by selling one. Win/win for apple.
Some employees will actually discourage you to fix your iPad (happened to me personally) and push you towards trade-ins. It stopped booting after upgrade and the employee said nothing can be done except trading it in.
Thanks for the article. This is useful information;
I've been looking at a Mac Mini so I'll keep an eye out.
I got a refurbished MacBook Pro with i7 for 1300 dollars 7 years ago it's still working fine. I never had to fix anything so far. Expensive? Not at all. All my friends who use pc have bought several during all those years. Not to mention how many times they had to fix something. It has even survived a one meter fall to a cement floor with only a few scratches on the corners of the lid. This is my first and only Mac, the best laptop I've ever had and when the time comes it will be a Mac again. In the meanwhile, I have just replaced the DVD rom with a SSD and upgraded the RAM to 16 GB so it's still fast.

Refurbrished phone was always a failuer same like apple when tryimg to sell bad thing for almost a full price.
Rather get new one. But for that price a nice android phone is always a better option.
Apple is company which just cant cooperate.
Wouldn't it be more honest to your readers to clearly mark a post like this as an advertisement?
True, 22 Jul 2018My thoughts exactly. I mean WTF call it what it is- second hand phone. If it saves you 10% tha... moreRazer doesn't sell refurbished laptops for half off.
Also, refurbished Apple products have a reputation for being in tip top condition. I had a refurbished iPad which lasted well over 5 years and recently got a refurbished 10.5" iPad Pro which works flawlessly, like new. No regrets and highly recommend their service
A refurbished iPhone 7 for $599, and a refurbished 13.3-inch i5 MacBook Pro for £1,399!?!?! Really?!?!? LOL
If Apple have so many refurbished iphones in stock doesnt that say something about their product. I begin to have doubt in Apple iphone quality. Why do you think it refurbished in the first place. Defects! They advertising their refurbished phone so openly.
