Deal | MacBook Pro (late 2020, M1) renewed unit goes on sale for US$600 off starting price
Those with their hearts set on a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple's first ever in-house M-series processor and a Touch Bar may find that it is available as a renewed model more often than not. OWC's Valentine's Day sale includes just such a unit at nearly 50% of its starting price, described as a factory-sealed refurbished unit from the OEM in an as-new condition.
OWC urges consumers to fall in love with the idea of the M1 chipset in a renewed laptop as part of its Valentine's Day 2023 sales event. Its best offers include an "Apple Factory Refurbished" and even factory-sealed Space Gray MacBook Pro (late 2020) with its first-gen proprietary platform, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD at US$899, or ~40% off its original US$1,499 price.
The offer seems to beat those of Amazon at the time of writing, on which equally pre-owned (and "excellent condition" with possible signs of use, rather than "Like New") units of the same laptop start as 256GB SSD SKUs for US$949 today.
Buying renewed is often a good option to save on a PC upgrade: for example, Amazon also has a 2022 MacBook Pro 13 with the updated M2 chipset and an identical configuration to that of OWC's offerings for 17% more at US$1,049, or US$1,299 for one with 512GB of internal storage.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
