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

Choosing Pre-Owned Mac 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 sometimes intimidating to PC users. Additionally, gaining access to test out the usability of Mac products can be very limited in some areas specifically here in West Hempstead. Buyers who are on a tight budget often find even the most affordable Mac computers unobtainable which can lead them to consider purchasing a pre-owned model. Of course purchasing anything pre-owned 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 gently used Mac computers, Macbook® laptops, and iPad® tablets that were traded in for an upgrade or bought out-right for rebuild. Pre-owned Mac products are inspected, repaired, and tested prior to being sold at a lower cost. At Experimac in West Hempstead, we are proud to offer our customers a 90-day repair or replace guarantee on every product you purchase.

Why purchase pre-owned Mac product?

Pre-owned machines also offer the high reliability and ease of use like brand new Mac computers but at a much lower price point. Buyers can feel confident that their investment is in a high quality machine that functions just as it would if it came from the Apple store.

How much savings can you expect?

Pricing for each pre-owned product is unique and based on the age and computing capability of that product. While there are no exact savings that we can guarantee for each of our pre-owned Mac products, our pre-owned prices tend to run 40% to 60% of a comparable new product.

What about warranties?

Experimac of West Hempstead is proud to offer a 90-day repair or replace on every pre-owned Mac product that we sell. We also offer our customers a full 7 days to familiarize themselves with their new product ensuring that they can feel confident that they have purchased a product that meets or exceeds their expectations.
