Buy Refurbished Macbook Pro 2015



I am currently shopping for MacBooks... My twins are in the Junior year of college and it's time to replace their Asus Chromebooks (2011) and MacBooks from like 2003... So...which model? Which 'year' of construction? What is the ideal trade off for refurbished Mac performance at 'gotta buy two' pricing?

That said, you need to do a certain amount of OS calculus. According to Apple, the new version of macOS (called Monterey), which was released in October 2021, supports MacBook Pros and Airs going back to 2015, as well as iMacs and Mac Minis going back to 2014. If you're looking to buy a used MacBook or iMac from these years, chances are they're running macOS Mojave. If that's the case, be warned: Apple's support for Mojave ended on October 22, 2021. This means that while you can still use your MacBook or iMac for everyday tasks, you won't be able to receive software, firmware, or security updates. Big Sur supports MacBooks and iMacs going as far back as 2013, so if you're ok with using a slightly older version of macOS, you can pick up an older Mac on-the-cheap and still get regular software and security updates.


Knowing the model year of the device your considering will help with this step. You'll want to choose a USB 2.0, 3.0, or USB C-based drive, depending on the age of the device. Generally, MacBook Pros before 2012 supported USB 2.0, from 2012 to 2015 supported USB 3.0, and those after supported Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C. Take my advice, though: Don't buy a Mac that doesn't support USB 3.0 or later. It'll just be too slow.


Depending on your budget, I'd recommend a 2014 or 2015 MacBook Pro or -- if you have the budget, a 2020 or 2021 machine with Apple's renewed M1 chipset. Avoid 2016 to 2018 machines, which have had notorious keyboard reliability problems, and you won't save that much on a purchase.


On OWC, I found a 2015 13-inch i5 MacBook Pro containing 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD for $739. The company offers a $60 SSD upgrade, which would take the machine to 256GB. I'd recommend that. While most folks can get by on 8GB, the 2015 MacBook Pro has RAM soldered onto the motherboard, so upgrades aren't possible.


Now, let's compare these used/refurbished models with a new 2020 purchase. A 2019 i5 13-inch MacBook Pro with 256GB and 8GB of RAM is $1,299. A more ideal, longer-lasting configuration with 16GB RAM takes the machine up to $1,499.


Refurbished MacBooks are not much different from new ones. For instance, MacBooks officially refurbished by Apple have been restored to complete working condition, have the same quality standards as factory-new products, and are almost indistinguishable from brand-new ones. Rest assured, when you buy a refurbished Apple product, it will be 100% functional.

The newer 2019 MacBook Pro has some great features like Touch ID, 32 GB RAM, and USB-C power delivery that you can plug on either side.

This is the MJVE2LL/A? or in simpler terms; an early 2015, 13-inch MacBook Air. This model comes equipped with an 1.6GHz i5 processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage. The screen has a resolution of 1440900 and mine surprisingly did include an, while however quite dirty, Apple-branded charger.


Now this is not meant to be a typical review of the 2015 MacBook Air. I just wanted to see if it was still a relevant purchase. Especially at the sub-$400 price point. I cannot speak to all of the refurbished sellers on the internet. However, the one I purchased from that the unit I received was, for the age, in great internal condition. The external cosmetic quality of lid and bottom portions was not the greatest. But for the price and age I was happy. I slapped a few stickers on and no one would ever know the difference.

With the arrival of the new Apple chips (M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max, M1 Ultra, and the M2) you want to think carefully before buying an old Mac because Intel-powered Macs are likely to lose value much quicker than Macs with Apple silicon inside. But with the first M1 Macs being introduced towards the end of 2020 there will be plenty of older models available to buy refurbished. The question is should you?

Apple has discontinued 15-Inch "Mid-2015" Retina Display MacBook Pro models with dual graphics. All other models in these lineups still are sold as new. This Q&A has been updated with the latest details.


Specifically, the 13-Inch "Early 2015" Retina Display MacBook Pro models are the MacBook Pro "Core i5" 2.7 13", "Core i5" 2.9 13", and "Core i7" 3.1 13" and the 15-Inch "Mid-2015" Retina Display MacBook Pro models are the still current MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.2 15" (IG),"Core i7" 2.5 15" (IG) and "Core i7" 2.8 15" (IG) as well as the now discontinued MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.5 15" (DG) and "Core i7" 2.8 15" (DG).


With a quick glance, it is obvious that the "Early 2015" models have 13-Inch displays and the "Mid-2015" models have 15-Inch displays, but there are many other differences that are nearly as important, even if they are not as obvious. As a result, a detailed comparison of the lines is necessary to determine which model is the best choice for your needs.


The 13-Inch and 15-Inch Retina Display MacBook Pro models use a similar and essentially "sealed" aluminum and glass design of uniform thickness. The 13-Inch "Early 2015" and 15-Inch "Mid-2015" notebooks both are 0.71 of an inch thick, but the 13-Inch models are 3.46 pounds (1.57 kg) and the 15-Inch models are 4.46 pounds (2.02 kg).


The "Early 2015" and "Mid-2015" MacBook Pro models all have a high-resolution LED-backlit widescreen "Retina" display, but the size and resolutions are different. The 13-Inch models have a 13.3" widescreen 2560x1600 (227 ppi) display and the 15-Inch models have a 15.4" widescreen 2880x1800 (220 ppi) display. By default, the 13-Inch and 15-Inch Retina Display MacBook Pro models run "pixel doubled" at 1280x800 and 1440x900, respectively, but with four times the detail of a "traditional" display.


The 13-Inch "Early 2015" and 15-Inch "Mid-2015" Retina Display MacBook Pro notebooks have the same connectivity. Both lines have 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, two "Thunderbolt 2" ports, an HDMI port, an audio out port, an SDXC card slot, and a "MagSafe 2" power connector port.


The "Early 2015" 13-Inch models and "Mid-2015" 15-Inch Retina Display MacBook Pro models share external Model Numbers with earlier models that have the same display sizes. Specifically, the 13-Inch models share model number A1502 and the 15-Inch models share model number A1398.


Internally, the "Early 2015" 13-Inch models and the "Mid-2015" 15-Inch MacBook Pro models quite a bit in common. Each notebook has a storage module that uses a PCIe 2.0 x4 interface, and has a battery that is glued in place. However, there are notable differences, too.


The differences between the "Early 2015" 13-Inch and "Mid-2015" 15-Inch Retina Display MacBook Pro models -- processors, storage, memory, video processors, displays, battery life, identifiers, and original prices -- are summarized below:


The 15-Inch "Mid-2015" Retina Display MacBook Pro models provide much faster performance in a package that is a bit larger and a pound heavier than the 13-Inch "Early 2015" Retina Display MacBook Pro models.

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display returns for 2015, this time with the power of the Force. This refreshed MacBook sports the company's innovative Force Touch trackpad, which can perform a host of pressure-sensitive commands. It also packs an optional AMD Radeon R9 R9 M370X GPU, which Apple says can deliver up to 80 times the graphics performance as last year's model.


The 2015 MacBook Pro with Retina's biggest addition is its Force Touch trackpad, which is also featured on both the new 12-inch MacBook and the latest 13-inch Retina Pro. This new 4 x 3-inch trackpad doesn't actually physically click, instead using force sensors and haptic feedback to simulate the sensation. 041b061a72
