Sales of Refurbished Mac Studio
Launched in March 2022, the new age Mac Studio is Apple’s most capable computer based on benchmark scores. It looks similar to Mac Mini, but bigger and has all the necessary ports and ventilation to make the experience better.
Although it’s available for upto a 20-core CPU and up to a 64-core GPU, Apple is now selling the refurbished pieces of the below models in select countries – namely the US, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
Fans in these regions can order a refurbished Mac Studio with an M1 Max chip (10-core CPU and 24-core GPU) for $1,799 or the one with an M1 Ultra chip (20-core CPU and 48-core GPU) for $3,599. Well, we expect the high-end variant with 20-core CPU and 64-core GPU too added to the list soon, and some to be delisted after when run out of stocks.
On the connectivity front, these Mac Studios come with Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A ports, one HDMI port, one 10-Gigabit Ethernet port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Upfront, there’s an SD card slot, along with two USB-C ports or two Thunderbolt 4 ports depending on the configuration.
All these models are eligible for AppleCare+ coverage, which costs $169 or $59.99 per year on a rolling basis. Also, these Mac Studios go through a deep cleaning process and inspection before setting up for sale and come with a 14-day return policy and one-year limited warranty from Apple.
