Apple MacBook: From Choice to Savings
Aesthetic Quality Grades
Expert advice: if you want to save even more on your refurbished MacBook, we can recommend choosing a lower aesthetic grade. Technically, your product will be perfectly functionally on par with a higher aesthetic grade, but with some cosmetic flaws, which may not be of concern or can easily be hidden, for example, with appropriate stickers. To find out all the details about our aesthetic grades (which are divided into "Excellent," "Very Good," and "Good"), you can consult this page.
