Buyer’s Guide for Purchasing Certified Pre-Owned Apple® Products

From Experimac

Apple products are known for their sleek design, quality hardware, and intuitive designs, which is why they have developed a devoted following. Each year, Apple, Inc.® comes out with new products as well as improvements to their staple products which tempt Apple device lovers into coveting an upgrade.

The cost of a brand-new computer can give even the most faithful Mac® computer user a case of sticker shock. Getting a Mac computer upgrade doesn’t mean you have to purchase the latest model at an escalated price. Certified pre-owned Mac computers from Experimac offer you the same high-quality craftsmanship as brand new machines but at a major discount.

What is a certified pre-owned Apple product?

A certified pre-owned Apple product is a product that has been previously owned and traded in or sold to Experimac for a wide range of reasons. The previous owner may have upgraded to a new model and traded in the previous one for a credit, while others may have had trouble adapting to the interface. Certified pre-owned Apple products at Experimac go through rigorous testing to ensure that all software and hardware are functioning properly and if needed, repairs are made. When purchasing a certified pre-owned Apple product from Experimac, your purchase comes with a warranty. Ask for details in the store.

What potential risks do I face with purchasing a certified pre-owned Apple product?

While there are risks associated with any purchase you make, new or pre-owned, Apple product or any brand. When you purchase a certified pre-owned Apple product at Experimac, you can rest assured that the product you are buying has undergone in-depth testing and inspections. Additionally, our products are available in store for you to inspect before purchasing and come with a warranty.

Protect your investment by looking for certified pre-owned Apple products that include the following:

  • Warranty – At Experimac, we stand by the products we sell and therefore offer a warranty to protect you in case any issues arise.
  • Return Policy – A return policy gives you the flexibility to return the product within a specified amount of time if you are unhappy with the product. A return policy gives you the security you need to feel confident in your purchase.
  • Accessories and Software – One concern we hear often from individuals interested in purchasing certified pre-owned products is whether they will have to purchase the cables and accessories separately. Purchasing a refurbished product should not lead you down a hole of hidden fees. Your “new to you” Apple product should come with all the accessories that were available to the original owner including any charging cables.
