Want an M1-Powered MacBook? You Can Snag a Refurbished One for a Discount

Apple is selling refurbished models of its M1-powered MacBook Air and MacBook Pro for the first time.

Back in November of 2020, Apple released the M1 MacBook Air and the M1 MacBook Pro — the first laptops to use Apple's new ARM-based silicon processor, instead of the Intel chipsets they'd been using for over a decade. The result: an M1-powered MacBook Pro and MacBook Air that look identical to previous-generation models, but deliver huge leaps in both performance and battery life.

Now, Apple is selling refurbished versions of those M1 laptops for the first time — which means you can score a deal on a gently pre-owned laptop packing the latest and greatest power and efficiency — and avoid having to buy into tech that's being phased out.

Of course, there's always new gear on the horizon: Apple is rumored to be planning a huge redesign for the whole MacBook line this spring. If you need a new computer in the meantime, though, these refurbished 2020 models are a great deal.

If you're shopping for an M1 MacBook Air

Apple is selling refurbished models in five different configurations and in three color options: silver, space gray or gold. You can save $150 on the most entry-level model, which normally costs $999. Or, you could save up to $250 if you go for a more expensive configuration.

If you're shopping for an M1 MacBook Pro

Apple is selling refurbished models of the Pro in a number of different configurations, as well; they're available in silver or space gray. You can save $190 on the most entry-level M1 MacBook Pro, which Apple sells new goes for $1,249. If you're shopping for a more expensive configuration, you can save upwards of $230.

Apple does not currently sell refurbished models of its M1-powered Mac Mini, which was announced last November alongside the M1 MacBook Air and M1 MacBook Pro.
