Two reconditioned Mac Studio configurations with the M1 Max chip (10-core CPU and 24-core GPU) and the M1 Ultra chip (20-core CPU and 48-core GPU) are now offered in the United States for $1,799 (down from $1,999 brand new) and $3,599 (down from $3,999 brand new), respectively. The stock on Apple’s reconditioned store fluctuates a lot, and more combinations are probably going to be added in the future.

Every certified refurbished Mac, according to Apple, goes through a full functioning test, is thoroughly cleaned and inspected, and is then repackaged in a new box with instructions and a power chord. Refurbished Apple goods are qualified for AppleCare+ coverage and are covered by Apple’s one-year limited warranty and 14-day return policy. On a rolling basis, AppleCare+ for the Mac Studio costs $169 or $59.99 per year.


The Mac Studio, which was introduced in March 2022, is a taller Mac mini featuring ventilation holes on the enclosure’s bottom and rear. According to benchmarks, the Mac Studio, which has a 20-core CPU and a 64-core GPU, is the fastest Mac ever.

Four Thunderbolt 4 connections, two USB-A ports, one HDMI port, one 10-Gigabit Ethernet port, and a 3.5mm headphone socket with compatibility for high-impedance headphones are all available for connectivity on the back of the Mac Studio. Depending on the configuration, the front of the device has two USB-C ports or two Thunderbolt 4 connectors in addition to an SD card slot.
