YIPPEE! Buy a New Mac For Your Grad and Go Deeper Into Debt!
With the allure that is created through the use of advertisements by Apple, more teenagers and college students are becoming interested in owning these seductive, expensive laptops. Although your grad may be asking you for a Mac, you don’t want to have to put yourself in debt to afford one.
Rather than scraping pennies together to purchase a brand new laptop, consider purchasing a refurbished one. There are literally thousands of refurbished Apple laptops available on the Internet from resources such as eBay, Amazon and of course, The Mac Support Store. Below are the benefits associated with buying a refurbished Apple computer for your grad.
Upgrading Refurbished Laptops
You may be thinking, well, refurbished isn’t as good as a new laptop, but you would be wrong. If you are able to purchase a refurbished laptop (dating 2011 and prior), you can easily upgrade it so that it has all of the features that your grad will require. As an example, if you are able to buy a Mac with 250GB HD, you can easily upgrade the drive to an SSD (Solid State Drive) so that they can work even faster.
Another thing that deters people from buying refurbished laptops is that they assume that the computer will have an ample amount of physical issues and defects but this is also wrong. On the contrary, refurbished laptops are like brand-new aside from the fact that they were previously owned or used as a floor model in a store. The majority of refurbished Apple laptop retailers will ensure that the laptop is in perfect working condition prior to putting them up for sale. This means that you will essentially be buying a brand-new laptop for your grad without having to pay the large price tag and put yourself in debt.
The main benefit associated with buying a refurbished laptop is that they are extremely cost effective. In today’s society, the majority of parents don’t have the funds available to spend thousands of dollars on a new laptop. With that being said, your grad will be able to get the computer that they want for a lower price tag but with the same beneficial features as a brand new computer. Refurbished laptops are a great way to give your grad a gift that they will remember without having to go deeper into debt.
