    Hi folks,

    I found a refurbished late 2013, 13" MBP, for 749.99, at Microcenter (Intel Core i5-4258U Processor 2.4GHz; 8GB DDR3L-1600 Onboard RAM; 256GB Flash Storage; Intel Iris Graphics). It is a off-lease refurbished machine.

    Does anyone know if this is an Apple refurbished device or is it in-house by Microcenter? Does this seem like a good deal?

    I appreciate any help or insight.

    I just purchased the same machine for exactly half the price. I think you can do better if you look around a bit more.

    I have this machine and I wouldn't spend that much on it. I'd go maybe $400 tops.

    Thanks everyone. Do you all find that it is worth the $350-$450 you all paid for it?

    Would you mind me asking - where did you purchase it from?

    I got it from Amazon with a seller called “Apple R Us”
    Apple MacBook Pro ME865LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop with Retina Display (OLD VERSION)
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0096VBXQE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_MfC1BbQX2HN7J

    Though I would make note that Refurbished models from the good vendors often have sales during holidays. I got my 16GB configured model in a Fourth of July Sale.
