Apple has launched a certified refurbished version of the 15-inch MacBook Air in the United States and Canada today (not yet available in stores in China). It is about 15% cheaper than the new model and offers a variety of configurations to choose from.
For example, a configuration originally priced at US$1,299 is priced at US$1,099 in a refurbished store (currently about RMB 8,089). The device is equipped with an M2 chip, including an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, supplemented by 8GB of memory and 256GB of solid-state hard disk.
It is worth mentioning that Apple has started to put refurbished 15-inch MacBook Air models on shelves in Europe last week, including the United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland.
Apple inspects, cleans, tests and repackages all refurbished Macs to ensure they are fully functional and in good condition, and Apple refurbished products are covered by a one-year limited warranty and are eligible for AppleCare+.
Apple released the 15-inch MacBook Air at WWDC in June, with a starting price of 10,499 yuan in China. The laptop has the same overall design as the 13-inch MacBook Air, which also uses the M2 chip, but comes with a larger display and two additional speakers. The laptop is available in four colors: Midnight, Starry Sky, Silver, and Space Gray.
