Hi All,

I am planning to buy refurbished macbook pro from Apple for my Friend. Its Quad core processor with 4 GB Ram, 15 inch. Any one has experience with refurbished stuff from Apple?

Not personally. But I know many people who have bought refurbs and are quite happy. One advantage refurbs have is that you know that they have been thoroughly tested.

Semi related - the warranty on the refurb items is very good. I was in the Apple store a couple of months back when a woman came in with an iPod she had purchased refurb that was broken. They simply swapped it out for a brand new, slightly newer model iPod. No charge to her.

Thanks for the reply. There are two options and I am really confused on that if you guys can suggest me:



Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.9GHz Dual-core Intel i7
Eligible for OS X Mountain Lion Up-to-Date Program

Originally released June 2012
13.3-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display, 1280-by-800 resolution
8GB (2 x 4GB) of 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM
750GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
Intel HD Graphics 4000


Or

Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel i7
Eligible for OS X Mountain Lion Up-to-Date Program

Originally released October 2011
15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display, 1440-by-900 resolution
4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM
500GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)

Not much difference in price.

There is another one which is used by someone and I am getting it really cheap

8 GB DDR3 MEM - (Upgraded from stock)*******
120GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Please suggest best one.
