The new MacBook Air makes its debut in the Apple Refurb Store. For the first time, the second notebook model presented this year with an M2 processor on board is now revised and available at a discount directly from the manufacturer.
Apple is currently advertising the new MacBook Air in its own refurb store in various housing colors in the small version with 256 GB memory and an 8-core GPU for 1,349 euros, the larger version with 512 GB memory and a 10-core GPU for 1,659 euros. . With these devices you can save 150 euros or 190 euros compared to the official new price.
However, we wouldn’t necessarily make a purchase recommendation in this case. However, Apple emphasizes that the devices offered in the Refurb Store have been extensively tested and, if necessary, only overhauled with original parts before they are offered for sale there with a full warranty. However, these are returns or exhibits, even if the rules don’t distinguish them from new goods. In principle, there is certainly nothing wrong with buying the devices offered in the Apple Refurb Store and you can still get the occasional bargain here, but not if the devices are cheaper than new goods from Apple’s official sales partners. .
New cheaper than Apple Refurb at Amazon
In the current case, you can even get the MacBook Air with M2 processor, which has been available since July, as a new product for considerably less than Apple uses it. Amazon has now reduced the price of the standard version of the notebook by about 15 percent and offers the device for 1,268 euros instead of the regular 1,499 euros.
The large version of the MacBook Air M2 is now significantly cheaper on Amazon than when used in the Apple Refurb Store. Here you can save about 14 percent on the new price and pay 1,589 euros – at Apple the refurb version of the notebook already costs 1,659 euros.
