Am I safe to buy a used or refurbished MacBook or MacBook Pro or MacAir? Is it worth it to save some money?

    Apple tests and certifies all Apple refurbished products and offer a 1-year warranty.
    They also offer to extend AppleCare protection up to three years.

    It really is the same as a brand new one, minus the price tag and fancy box.

    I bought a MacMini this way in 2004. It is still working and I used it yesterday.
