In the end, users can expect to save up to 15% ($110) by going the refurbished route, and remember that these devices come with a full 1-year factory warranty, which makes refurb units a great idea for budget-conscious shoppers.
The only difference is that refurbished products are nearing the end of their current model cycle, or are one (sometimes more) generations behind the latest. Another thing to note is you have less customization of hardware, e.g. you will not be able to upgrade a MacBook internal drive or RAM on Apple's site. All refurbished models are shipped as is.
The other thing to keep in mind that if you Apple products need repair, the charges for repair even on old products are very reasonable! I had a fan installed on a Old Macbook (unibody 2009 release) and I was shocked that Apple folks did it for only $37 dollars or labor cost. The fan would have cost me $15 from Amazon, but the process was way too risky and complicated to risk it to save $37 dollars.
If you think in a positive way about refurbished unit product, you can be certain that some person cleaned and repaired and personally inspected that exact unit, the very one that you're thinking of buying, to make sure it works properly.
