    Is buying a MBP refurbished from the apple store even worth the money you save

    You're buying a quality device that has been checked and tested by the company that makes and sells those very devices to make sure it functions correctly.

    Personally I think they are excellent value but of course this is only my opinion and your mileage may vary.

    Yes you can probably dig up stories of folks who have bought a refurbished device that does not function correctly but the same could be said for iPhones, android devices, automobiles and every single other object that could be sold second-hand.

    Your choice.

    I've never had a refurbished Apple product refurbished by Apple that was a lemon.

    Most refurbished products are checked thoroughly, and are just as good if not better than the original equipment. If you're buying it from Apple I'm sure it's been checked.

    And Apple gives the full one year warranty on their refurbs so you have that peace of mind.

    You get the same warranty, so I'd say blessing
