Having a Mac computer is a dream for some people. But not everyone can have it. One of major problem is because of the price. But in order to get the dream Mac product, some people are targeting second hand products. Second hand or used products certainly have their own advantages, which is of course because the price is clearly cheaper than the new product.
Buying used goods is certainly legitimate. But in this case, more carefulness and thoroughness are needed in choosing and determining the items to be purchased. The question of prospective buyers is usually about the authenticity of the goods. In addition, there are many more considerations so that we do not buy cats in sacks. How can we buy a second-hand Mac with the right price but still good?
Here are what you need to do before buying second hand Mac :
- Prioritize COD (Cash on Delivery)
Buying second hand goods is better to do with COD (Cash on Delivery) so you can check it directly from the seller. So the prospective buyer can interact directly with the seller. Make a deal if the goods is okay.
- Check the unit version
Make sure you really know the version of the Macbook you are about to buy. Not all laptops with Apple logos on back is Mac.
- Check Authenticity and Accessories
Make sure everything is complete in the package; Macbook, Box, charger, and others. To check the authenticity of the Macbook, you can click the Apple logo in the top left and then click “About this Mac”. The serial number will appear.
- Physical Check and Functionality
After you make sure of the version and the authenticity of the Macbook, please check the Macbook physically. Make sure there are no blisters, scratches, or other deformed. Check in the system to find out the battery condition and number of battery cycles. Also check Bluetooth, Wifi and the OS conditions.
- Consider Prices and Guarantees
After you are sure about the checking process, please consider the price and warranty. For the price, it can be seen on the internet at the existing market prices because current market prices are often changing.
Other than buying second hand Mac, you can buy refurbished Macs from Apple itself. All refurbished Mac models are backed by a one-year warranty, have free delivery and returns, and also include:
- Full functional testing, genuine Apple part replacements (if necessary) and a thorough cleaning
- The original Operating Systems or a more recent version
