Second hand Macs – Christmas warranty

Everybody wants a Macbook. When you look around in your local coffee shop, it’s easily the most popular computer around. Students love them because they are reliable, fast and they don’t get computer viruses. But they can be expensive. A new Macbook Pro costs at least £999, a new Macbook Air costs £899.

Refurbished by Apple Certified Technicians

Our team of Apple certified technicians professionally refurbishes Macbooks that have either been preowned or in some cases have clearly just been sat in a warehouse for a year. We test each one and make sure that it works exactly as you’d expect. Then we install the latest version of OS X.

Buying for Christmas?

Buying a second hand Macbook is a great way to give some a great (I know that’s a lot of greats) computer, while saving money compared to the prices that Apple charge. We keep our range of Macs fresh, so you’re not buying old models. They come with 3 month warranty as standard, which can be extended to 12 months. But buying a computer in December, and not giving the present until Christmas Day, can mean that the recipient loses some time on their warranty. That doesn’t seem fair. So any second-hand MacBooks or iMacs bought from SimplyFixit in December 2015 will have warrranty that runs until as standard.

We have a very wide range of second-hand Apple Mac computers to choose from, 13 and 15-inch MacBooks and 21 and 27-inch iMac computers. Here are the details of 2 of the most popular models but the warranty extension covers all of the range.

Macbook Air

We have the 2014 model of the Macbook Air for £599 in stock at SimplyFixIt in Bruntsfield or at your local SimplyFixit. That’s a £300 discount and it’s practically the latest model.

Macbook Pro

We have the non-retina model of the Macbook Pro, which is the last one that had a DVD drive and allowed the RAM to be upgraded for only £599 in stock at SimplyFixIt in Bruntsfield or at your local SimplyFixit. Apple had this exact laptop for sale right up to October 2015 for £899, with a smaller hard drive than we offer. So there’s over £300 discount with this model. Plus it is designed to last for years. It allows the Memory and the hard drive to be upgraded now or in the future. The latest retina models of the Macbook Pro don’t allow for either of these.
