Apple's Refurbished Mac Store is its best-kept secret where you can buy devices in perfect condition with a nice little discount — here are the best deals

  • Brand new, Apple sells the 2018 Mac Mini at a starting price of $800 with an 8th-generation Core i3 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
  • Apple still sells brand-new 2017 13-inch MacBook Pros with the 7th-generation 2.3GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of storage for $1,300, but you can get exactly the same laptop with the same specs for $200 less — $1,100 — if you buy it refurbished.
  • Brand new, the 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.2GHz Core i7, 16GB RAM, and 256GB storage goes for $2,400, but you can get exactly the same model refurbished for $2,040, a $360 discount.
  • If you want more storage at the cost of missing out on Intel's 8th-generation of quad-core chips, the cheapest refurbished 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro goes for $2,250.

I tried Apple's recently updated Mini Mac — and it's the way to go if you're looking for macOS desktop on a budget

  • It boasts the same design as the previous Mac mini, but has updated ports, updated internal specs, and is a much better option in 2019.
  • In general, despite the fact that the Mac mini design has been around for a while, it's a good-looking device.
  • Of course, it'll cost a pretty penny to upgrade those specs — but if you're looking for power in a macOS computer, it's a good option.
  • The device was easily able to handle that — much more easily than the aging 2012 MacBook Pro I was using for that before getting the Mac mini.
  • If you're looking for a desktop powered by macOS and don't want to spend the money on an iMac, then the Mac mini is the way to go.
