    Are refurbished MacBook laptops available at Wal-Mart


    Everyone knows that Apple regularly sells refurbs on its own site and you need a little more than a credit card at hand to snag one of those babies up. Most people are such big fans of Apple's refurbs that they will even subscribe to their refurbished products feed just to make sure they are on top of all the discounts that Apple has to offer. One of my friends, who needed a new Mac because her old one died on her decided to wait a month or so just so she could get one of these refurbished MacBook laptops for herself; despite the face she had a paper due in 3 months. Needless to say she borrowed my spare Mac to get by.

    Now What Do I Do?

    With that kind of fervour for Apple's products you would expect that Apple would be handing out refurbs like it was a cold summer day in France and they had the only baguette store open! However, Mac products are usually reliable which means that Apple can only sell a couple of refurbished Mac laptops every month. However, there are other places that you can get your hands on the refurbished Mac of your dreams. If you are wondering how to get a refurbished macbook laptop at Wal-Mart, then let me assure you, it shouldn't be a problem at all.

    How Do I Do It?


    The process is pretty simple but it will require that you make a trip out to a Wal-Mart nearby though. Most people think that you need to head to a 'big Wal-Mart' since they will have the most refurbs in stock but you can have the staff at any old Wal-Mart check out the stock for refurbished MacBooks in your city. It is however best that you pick up your refurb only from the store that you are in since it will give you a chance to inspect the product and see if all is well. Once you've found the MacBook of your dreams (on a discount) you need to make sure that the standard Apple warranty on the product is still applicable and that Wal-Mart would let you return the product and give you your money back for the standard duration that they let customers who purchase new MacBooks do.

    The Secret To Getting A Refurbished MacBook Laptop At Wal-mart

    What might also make a good question to ask the staff at Wal-Mart is what part or component of the Mac was replaced. What also happens in a lot of cases is that people end up returning the product to the store for personal reasons or the like which basically means that there is nothing actually wrong with the product itself. If you can get your hands on one of these laptops then you are in luck because these are the most reliable refurbished Mac purchases that you can ever get. Basically it is a very slightly used new Mac that you can get your hands on for $200 off the sticker price!
