The Highly Portable Used and Refurbished 13-inch MacBook Pro Laptop
The 13-inch refurbished Macbook Pro from GainSaver is powerful, rugged and just the right size to take with you! It’s the smallest of the Macbook Pro laptops made by Apple, but it does not lack features or performance.
Advantages of the Refurbished Used MacBook Pro 13-Inch Laptop
The MacBook Pro 13-inch is the ideal balance of portability and performance. The refurbished 13-inch Macbook Pro weighs in around 3.5 to 4.5 pounds, depending on when it was introduced. The newer systems with Retina screens are lighter, partly because they are thinner as a result of not having an optical drive built in. The 15-inch Macbook Pros are about a pound heavier, which is quite a lot if you are carrying it all day.
Although the screen is smaller, the used discount 13-inch Macbook Pro has a full size keyboard and trackpad, so you have the same typing experience on the 13-inch. In addition, the processor speeds are just slightly less when compared to the 15-inch Macbook Pros of the same year.
All of this means that the 13-inch Macbook Pro is ideal if you plan to keep it with you instead of on your desk. It’s definitely more portable, but still a powerhouse that can manage any of your most demanding business or scientific applications. And if you require a large screen, you can always attach an external monitor to your refurbished 13-inch Macbook Pro when using it at your desk.

Each year that Apple introduces new Macbook Pro systems, there are changes in the hardware specifications.

Mid 2012 was a big year for the Macbook Pro. That’s when the first of the Macbook Pro laptops with Retina displays were introduced, and the last of the Macbook Pros with optical drives. The Force-Touch trackpad was introduced in Mid 2015.
Do You Need a Refurbished Mac with a Thunderbolt Port?
The Thunderbolt port is a high speed connection available on the Macbook Pro since Early 2011. If you have peripherals that use the Thunderbolt port, you’ll want to make sure the refurbished 13-inch Macbook Pro you order has one. Thunderbolt can be used to attach external devices like hard drives and even monitors. Best of all, Thunderbolt is about 20x faster than the USB 2 connector.
