Apple enthusiasts now have a golden opportunity to get their hands on the 2023 Mac Studio models without the full price tag. Today, Apple introduced its M2 Max and M2 Ultra Mac Studio models in the refurbished section of its U.S. online store. This move marks the first time these desktop machines have been available at reduced prices following their initial launch in June 2023.
Customers can now avail the entry-level M2 Max Mac Studio, boasting 32GB RAM and a 512GB SSD, for a tempting $1,699. This price reflects a generous $300 markdown from the original $1,999 asking price. Meanwhile, the base model M2 Ultra, equipped with 64GB RAM and a 1TB SSD, is currently listed at $3,399. This is a significant $600 drop from the original price of $3,999.
The current Apple offerings span various M2 Ultra and M2 Max Mac Studio models. All these models showcase approximately 15 percent discounts from their standard prices. Depending on the machine’s configuration and starting price, prospective buyers can expect savings ranging from $300 to an impressive $1,300.
Originally launched in June 2023, the Mac Studio models were unveiled alongside the Mac Pro models. These devices are touted for delivering Mac Pro-level performance, all while housing the formidable M2 Ultra chip in a sleeker, more compact design.
Potential buyers can rest assured of the quality of Apple’s refurbished products. Each unit undergoes a rigorous refurbishment process which encompasses full functionality testing. Any module found defective is promptly replaced.
Additionally, these machines undergo a meticulous cleaning and inspection routine.
As an added assurance, these refurbished products are AppleCare+ eligible, and come with the standard 14-day return period that brand-new Apple devices enjoy.
