The current configurations available as a refurbished model are as follows:
- M1 Mac mini with 8‑Core CPU, 8‑Core GPU, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD: $929 (opens in new tab)
- M1 Mac mini with 8‑Core CPU, 8‑Core GPU, 8GB RAM, and 1TB SSD: $929 (opens in new tab)
- M1 Mac mini with 8‑Core CPU, 8‑Core GPU, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD: $1099 (opens in new tab)
Apple's Certified Refurbished program, as opposed to other "open box" or used items you might find at a third-party retailer, takes used products through an extensive process that makes them indistinguishable from a new product. They also still come with new accessories like the charger and cable and enjoy the same warranty as new Apple products.
The company has already begun selling refurbished versions of its MacBook Air with M1 and 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 as well.
