This laptop is listed on the us site. It is simply listed as "Product Condition: Used Laptop (Refurb)"

Most likely taken off-lease. I think it should be illegal for companies to call used laptops as "refurb". Anything that works and turns on can be called refurb these days. It's such a scam. They should be honest and just call it used laptop. Refurb should mean that it came out from the original manufacturer.

I was told mine was 2016 - with the product ID on my bill being APPN1ZQL - when googling it, it confirmed that it was 2016:
https://www.apple.com/shop/product/FLW7 ... lay-Silver

they have a return policy in place - so if it isn't legit, it'll just go back.

Anyone have experience returning things to this side of IBM?
Only 2014 and 2015 models have CORE I7-4770HQ. And they couldn't possibly be selling the luxurious 2016 touchbar macbook pro 15 at that price. There is no chance of getting a 2016 model. I wouldn't even say it's possible to get a decent condition 2015 or 2014 model at that price. Too good to be true. And considering the age of those macbooks 15's your will most likely get one that is used by some company. If you actually get one that is in proper refurbished condition as the macbook 12s, consider yourself lucky

I'd still be happy with a 2015..but you're all right. it seems to good to be true..

I'll just have to wait and see - their descriptions are all off, and they seem so disorganized, but i have a little faith left in them because i ordered an iphone from them last week and it's in great condition..

Could people who have received their laptops through this deal share their experiences?

They emailed me for a contact at IBM. They will email that person to verify. I do not know anyone at IBM. Will they return my money if my order is canceled?

12" macbook arrived today. Ordered last Friday. No heads up or notification of delivery/tracking sent after order was confirmed by IBM. Nothing got flagged in myChoice UPS and I was never able to get through to IBM to find out when it was coming. That experience could definitely be improved.

Got his and hers MacBooks, one with 4 and one with 7 cycles used, so happy about that. Confirmed both are the early 2016 model. With some of the recent chat on this thread I was getting a bit worried that it could end up being a 2015 model. So far, feel pretty happy about this deal. Keyboard might take a bit of getting used to. Not sure if it's because i'm coming from something bigger or if i's just different.
hey - i just put in an order for one and was told it was an "open box", not refurbished. Did your laptops come in their original boxes? i'm asking because i'm buying it as a gift. thanks!

Not the original boxes. Came in a plain white box.

When did you place your order? I placed mine last Thursday, and I haven't received any updates since.

Anyone have any luck buying the rose gold and asking for the silver model instead without an extra charges?

Brown ahead for Bure. Bure going in.. he scores! Pavel Bure has won it for the Vancouver Canucks! It's a triple overtime hat-trick for Vancouver!

A refurbished/used item isn't going to make a great gift. I highly doubt they are selling the 15" 2016 at a quarter of it's value. Look on their site now as they have a 2017 13" for 3K.

They don't charge you to change color just request for it if it's in stock.

Ok, because on the website, the space grey and silver models are like $300 more than the rose gold.

Trying to decipher the IBM listing and determine which year this Macbook is on the IBM site. And having zero luck. More to the point, I'm trying to determine which flavour of the Core M it's running. Anyone have any insight? My mid 2011 Air is beginning to show its age, and before I splash out on screen replacement etc, I wanted to see if this is a suitable substitute, and early Xmas present for myself.
