TL;DR: This refurbished state-of-the-art 13.3” MacBook Pro with advanced processing power and graphics is now on sale for $489.99 (reg. $1,199).

There’s a saying that states, "If you are going to do something, do it right." It’s clear those at Apple adhere to this, for despite this being a refurbished 13.3” MacBook Pro, it still performs at the speed and quality we expect from our Apple products.

First off, let’s make this clear. While yes, refurbished does mean that the product is used and that it may have a few scuffs on its case, great care has been taken to ensure that, after bringing this 2015 MacBook Pro back to its factory settings, you will be getting a product that is going to work like new. In addition, you will be receiving an aftermarket 30-day parts and labor warranty from a third party. Of course, the bigger benefit to you is that it is going to cost way less than if you bought it hot off the press. (Back in 2015 when these first came out, MacBook Pros were selling for $1300 or over $1600 in today's dollars.) Plus you’re saving this laptop from the gross, unsightly piles of e-waste that are littering our world.
