The (Refurbished) Mac Attack Is Back, Jack!

The (Refurbished) Mac Attack Is Back, Jack!

This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Technology may be pretty and useful and stuff, but boy, is it pricey. That's why you -- you clever, sexy thing -- roam the Internet for tech deals, and that's why you already know one of the smartest things you can do when it comes to hardware is buy refurbished. These dirty old iPads and MacBooks that somebody didn't want went back to the factory, got fixed up to good as new, and now they need a new home, so they're going for way less than the sticker price. We're not going to say one person's trash is another person's treasure, but like, we'll heavily allude to it.

Apple iPad Air 2, 9.7" 64GB - Silver (Pre-Owned: Wi-Fi Only)

MSRP: $339

Sale Price: $289 (14% off)

Made in 2014, we can't say who the previous owner of this iPad Air was, but it's possible that it was Beyonce. Prove us wrong. With 64GB storage and a 9.7" Retina display, it's a great travel tablet and packs a 1.5GHz processor so you can work on the go, all useful features for an international superstar or anyone else.

Apple iPad Air 2, 9.7" 64GB - Space Grey (Pre-Owned: Wi-Fi Only)

MSRP: $339

Sale Price: $299 (12% off)

Do you prefer the Space Grey to the Silver? Us, too. It's a touch more expensive, but it's a better color, and it might have been pre-owned by Barack Obama. Who can really say? He seems like a Space Grey type.

Apple MacBook Air 11" Core i5 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM 128GB - Silver (Pre-Owned)

MSRP: $599

Sale Price: $410 (31% off)

The anonymous writer of this article uses this computer and can confirm he did not give it up for Cracked to sell as pre-owned. It's way handier than he expected it to be when he bought it as a broke copywriter five years ago, and his girlfriend's 2020 MacBook Pro has been back to the Apple Store more than his MacBook Air has, so he would never let it go. Someone else did, though. Maybe Tom Hanks?

Apple MacBook Pro 13.3" Core i5, 8GB RAM 500GB (Pre-Owned)

MSRP: $649

Sale Price: $599 (7% off)

Okay, now things are getting weird. This is the computer the anonymous copywriter used in college, which is still going strong today, after he got it refurbished. (This is when he desperately bought the MacBook Air because he needed to work to make money.) He just confirmed that Cracked did not steal either of his computers. It's a solid computer, with a 2560 x 1600 Retina display and 8GB of RAM for smooth performance, and may have been touched by the fingers of Chris Pine. Is that a chance you want to pass over?

Apple iMac 21.5" Core i5, 2.7GHz 8GB RAM 1TB HDD (Renewed)

MSRP: $550

Sale Price: $499.99 (9% off)

At no point has the anonymous copywriter owned an iMac. He does think they're attractive computers, but you probably didn't come here to learn this much about his life and opinions. This beaut offers pretty great performance for a $500 computer, with 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 2.7GHz Intel quad-core i5 processor, and 1TB HDD storage, and may have been owned by ... God, who knows. Your long-lost best friend from childhood? Your estranged mom? Carrot Top? All equally likely possibilities. Hurry -- maybe they left Facebook logged in.
