    Hey guys, title says it all.

    I finally decided to pull the trigger on the $799 MacBook Pro 13 inch model that is refurbished in the Apple Store but it keeps selling out of stock quickly.

    Anyone have a clue when it will restock with that particular model or is it totally random?

    And if anyone has any clue where to buy refurb MBP's with a similar price point but not eBay, Craigslist, or Amazon because they all usually don't come with the same 1-year warranty and option to upgrade to AppleCare before that year ends which is what I plan to do.

    Thanks for any and all help!

    It's random. They can restock the store several times a day or take much longer. If you're looking for a particular model, use refurb.me to be notified when it becomes available.
    • Apple Certified Refurbished Products are only available from the Apple Refurb Store and are not sold by any 3rd party or local Apple stores
    • Educational discounts do not apply to refurb products.
    • Refurb products come with the same warranty as new products, and qualify for AppleCare
    • Refurb products have a changed serial number that identifies them as refurbished
    • Refurb products come with whatever OS version and software they originally shipped with as new
    • Refurb products come with the same items in the box as new products, only the box is a plain one, not the new box.
    • A refurb product could have some cosmetic signs of prior use, but rarely do
    • A refurb Mac may have some cycles on the battery, but not a significant enough amount to affect usable life
    • The refurb store inventory changes frequently, sometimes several times a day, and doesn't have any direct relation to upcoming product releases. What's available in the refurb store is determined by what has been returned to Apple.
    • If you're looking for a particular item, refurb.me can alert you when it becomes available.
