Curious about what you get when you buy an Apple refurbished product? We recently purchased an AirPort Extreme and documented what refurbished means to Apple(at least for their routers).
Check out the video below!
I am simply stunned at the quality of this refurbished unit. Honestly the only thing that makes it identifiable as refurbished is the product sku information on the box. There is nothing on the unit itself that gives it an appearance of being previously used, no wear, no stickers or engravings, nothing.
From this single experience it appears that refurbished means “factory reconditioned and like new”. Best part is I snagged this for around $130 USD(before tax) saving $70 from the full $200 retail price. At such a bargain I will certainly be considering Apples refurbished products in the future. As we have only just received it you can count on a review in the coming months once I get a chance to put it through it’s paces.
