Let’s face it: a new Mac can be rather pricey. There’s many reasons that they’re a great value, from their build quality to the components inside to the software they run, but at the end of the day, if you only have a limited budget for a Mac, it can be tough to find the Mac you need.
We’ve talked before about getting your Mac ready for sell, which is a popular way to recoup some of the cost of your old Mac when you’re getting a new machine. But what about buying a used Mac instead of getting the latest model straight from Apple?
The good thing is, there’s quite the active market for used Macs, and you can usually find almost any Mac you can think of for sell on Craigslist, eBay, or from a local shop. If buying used sounds a bit too risky to you, you could always go for a refurbished Mac straight from Apple, where you can get as much as $200 off many Macs.
So, have you ever purchased a used Mac? How’d it work out for you?
