Used Mac Computer vs Refurbished Mac Computer

Old Macintosh Computer Games

In general, refurbished Mac computers are a better deal but there are fewer on the market at any one time. That is because refurbished products can only come onto the market when newer offerings become available. Both refurbished and used Macs for sale come with warranties, however, they are always shorter than those you would receive when purchasing a brand-new computer.
