    I have been watching the Refurb store for about 2 weeks now for a 15 inch macbook pro. I see many models come and go quickly but the one listed below has not budged. It is there every day. So what gives? Is there an issue with this particular model that I don't know about? They all sell out quickly but not this one.

    Or is it a popular model that they often have in the refurb store?

    This was the entry level 15in MBP for 2014. It was the most common 15in sold. It makes sense that it would be the one that's on the refurb page the most out of any other 15in model.

    Only Apple could say for sure, but it's the "low end" model from last year.
    So, likely had the most sold for that model.
    And, seems logical, that if you sell a lot, that a fair number would also get returned.
    My expectation is that the 13-inch is (probably) the highest number sold, followed by the 15-inch, then everything else.
    And, for refurbs, folks want a good price, and they might go for the smaller screen first (cheaper, smaller, lighter, etc), so the 15-inch is not quite as desirable to resell as the 13-inch, for example.
    Just my opinion, FWIW

    It is the most numerous as others have pointed out, but more importantly those buying refurbs often choose them to get higher specs for less money and for many people 256GB SSD on a 15 inch desktop replacement PC is just too low.
