I have finally made my decision regarding I want to buy a Mac computer.
I need advice - should I buy a brand new MacBook Pro 15 or is it 'safe' to save some money and buy a slightly used from say Kijiji?
I think it's safe as long as you use common sense. A lot of people prefer to buy here as it may be a safer place to purchase.
It all depends on your level of risk but buying something especially with Applecare remaining is a safe bet.
Thank you for your input.
Someone adviced me against buying a refurb and when I look at the offers on Kijiji - well, some of them seems too good to be true so I would of course make sure to see proof of purchase etc.
Nobody here can tell you if it's safe to buy a computer through Kijiji. Caveat emptor, right? There's certainly more risk in buying anything this way. Trust your gut and use a bit of common sense. If it seems too good to be true, it often is.
The Apple refurb store is the best way to save a bit of money and retain a guarantee. If the machine you are buying is a recent model, it would be the place I would look first.
