Pre-Owned Mac® Products: Choosing Pre-Owned Apple® Products, What You Need To Know

Ask any long-term user of Mac products what they love most about their computer and more than likely they will say – reliability. Mac products are not sold in the volume of other computers; they’re more expensive and are often intimidating to older generations. Additionally, gaining access to test out the usability of Mac products can be very limited in some areas specifically here in Shiloh.

Buyers who are on a tight budget often find even the most affordable Mac products unobtainable which can lead them to consider purchasing a pre-owned model. Of course purchasing anything second-hand comes with risks.

Here are some tips for purchasing a pre-owned Mac product:

What is a pre-owned Mac product?
pre-owned Mac products can include both pre-owned Mac computers, Macbook® laptops, and iPad® tablets that were traded in for an upgrade or those returned for defects. Pre-owned Mac products are inspected, repaired, and tested prior to being sold at a lower cost. At Experimac in Shiloh, we are proud to offer our customers a 90-day warranty on every product you purchase.

Why purchase pre-owned Mac products?
Mac products are known for their sleek design, reliability, and cutting edge technology – not to mention their easy usability. Unfortunately, brand new Mac products can cost a hefty penny. Pre-owned machines offer the same reliability and ease of use as a brand new Mac product but at a much lower price point. Buyers can feel confident that their investment is in a high quality machine that looks and functions just as it would if it came from the Apple store.

How much savings can you expect?
Pricing for each pre-owned item is unique and based on the needs of that product. In order to supply our customers with the highest quality pre-owned Mac products, we use the highest quality hardware we can get our hands on. While there is no exact savings that we can guarantee for each of our pre-owned Mac products, we can guarantee that you can expect a great deal and a great product.

What about warranties?
Experimac of Shiloh is proud to offer a 90-day warranty on every pre-owned Mac product that we sell. Offering our customers a full 90 days to familiarize themselves with their new product ensures that they can feel confident that they have purchased a high quality machine that exceeds their expectations.

Owning a high quality machine doesn’t have to break the bank. Experimac of Shiloh has a huge inventory of pre-owned Mac products such as iMac® computers, MacBook Pro® laptops, and more that can fit your budget. If you or your family are in need of a new computer, consider stopping by your local Experimac store to try out a pre-owned Mac product. Our trained staff can answer any questions you might have about taking the plunge.

Experimac Coming Soon to Quad Cities

Experimac will soon be opening in the Quad Cities. The following article features Joe King, who will soon be opening an Experimac in Illinois, with his son.

Joe King is not one of the many who quit his soul-sucking corporate job to start his own business. On the contrary, King loved his career.

“I am just retiring from John Deere as an Engineering and Quality manager after 37 years,” says King. “I had an excellent career with Deere and wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Instead, King’s focus in buying the franchise is on his son.

“My son wants to run a business and I want to help him get started as part of my retirement plan,” says King. “I can’t fish all the time.”

King’s solution was to become a franchisee of, Experimac, the new concept that provides pre-owned computers and devices; repair and upgrade services for laptops, phones and tablets; trade-ins of existing devices; and sales of accessories and software for Apple®devices.

King says his recent move to Apple products helped convince him this was an industry he wanted to work in.

“I am amazed at the simplicity and connectedness of the products and the apps and programs,” says King. “And the translation between Windows products now is seamless.”

King has noticed he’s not the only fan of Apple’s products.

“Many people like Apple products and operating systems in spite of their premium price,” says King. “We think the idea of selling pre-owned, refurbished and upgraded Apple products will be a big hit with students and others who want Apple but don’t want to pay the premium.”

These days, everyone is on the lookout for a good deal, but not everyone wants to sacrifice quality in favor of a bargain. With Experimac, they won’t have to.
