I'd happened across these guys on eBay years ago, I didn't realize they had their own website too.

Good to know, thanks!

Yes, these are generally Staples demo units/returns, and they sell on eBay as well. You can get things at a good discount but note that you are generally foregoing the usual warranty, etc. A couple months ago they had a 15" i9 MacBook Pro with cosmetic damage and they let it go for $1700 or so. This is a machine that was going for $3400 at Best Buy (and that too for an open box unit). I purchased a like new 15" MBP from them in 2016 (2015 model) for $1200. Only thing is their inventory is a bit of a hit or miss, it's not like they have that many demo units for sale (especially newer MacBooks) at any given time, and their inventory is constantly changing.

I had a horrible experience the last time i bought a MacBook from them. They said it was a 2017 model, but when I got it, it was a 2016. They insisted it was the right model when the box and serial number said otherwise. Took about six weeks to get my money back after returning it. Never again.

weaksauce on the iPhones. iPhone SE (2020) is basically an iPhone 8 with a better processor... and its cheaper new vs the phones they have on the website.
