Refurbished Mac, apple, macworld australiaShop at mResell and save up to $250 on a refurbished iMac and/or up to $100 on a refurbished iPad. Buying a brand new Mac is an expensive decision and for those who are unfamiliar with the operating system, why not buy a refurbished Mac through mResell? It’s unlike Apple’s own stores, which rarely offer discounts.

What does refurbished mean?

Regardless of the state the Mac was originally in, a refurbished Mac is bought up to ‘like-new’ condition, equipped with a warranty and priced, on average, a few hundred dollars less than a new model. The refurbished Macs available range from current models available from Apple to accordingly-priced models from previous generations.

Who would choose a refurbished Mac?

Buyers on a tight budget find even the most affordable Mac unobtainable. This often leads to the consideration of a refurbished Mac and is considered an excellent option for businesses buying in bulk, home users, university students, parents buying for university students, teachers and staff at all levels. Also, for a travelling graduate student on a budget a refurbished Mac is a great solution for your computer needs while you’re on the road.

What is available?

The following products listed are now available for purchase at mResell and vary in price according to condition: accessories, Apple TV displays, iMacs, iPads, iPhones, Mac minis, Mac Pros, MacBooks, MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros. If there is a product you’re interested in that isn’t available, you can leave your details and once the product is in stock you will be notified.

Why should they buy from mResell?

All products come with a warranty inclusive of a two-week ‘open purchase period’ where you have the right to return any item within two weeks from the purchase date and receive a full refund. Because mResell thoroughly inspects all items in stock and ensures the condition they are in is as described, mResell can provide a warranty on every product sold. The length of the warranty provided is dependent on the age of the product; ie: the older a product, the shorter the warranty.

For a quick and easy delivery process all items purchased are dispatched within 48 hours. Delivery times are set for business days only and in the case of an ‘on order’ product, the expected turnaround time is longer.

As we all know Apple products are not cheap and you can purchase a second-hand model for a lot less money.

With the savings you’ll make on purchasing a refurbished product through mResell, you will have a wad of extra cash to spend on apps (especially for school and university students) and accessories such as a monitor, keyboard, mouse or printer etc.
