The Popular Used and Refurbished 15-inch MacBook Pro Laptop
The Macbook Pro is the most popular Mac laptop manufactured by Apple. And the refurbished 15-inch Macbook Pro is the right choice for just about every laptop buyer.
The MacBook Pro for Everyone
The 15-inch Macbook Pro falls right in the middle, between the smaller 13.3-inch Macbook Pro and the larger 17-inch Macbook Pro. It offers the just the right combination of power, portability and display options for most applications. When in doubt, go with a 15-inch GainSaver refurbished Macbook Pro!
Because the Macbook Pro is manufactured with Apple’s Unibody construction, it is extremely durable. The enclosure is machined from a single block of aluminum for strength and precision. The internal components don’t get knocked around because they are so solidly mounted inside the enclosure. That’s why they last so many years.
You can find used and refurbished 15-inch Macbook Pro laptops at GainSaver with and without high resolution Retina displays. The sharp, detailed Retina display Macbook Pros give you an imaging studio you can carry with you anywhere. But if you plan to leave your pre-owned 15-inch Macbook Pro on your desk, you may not require the Retina display. You can connect an external display to get the high resolution output you need for graphics processing and video editing.
High Performance Processors
The processor type is an important consideration when it comes to the speed of your GainSaver certified 15-inch MacBook Pro. Macbook Pro laptops are powered by Intel processors. The most widely used refurbished Macbook Pro laptops have the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors that provide desktop speed and performance.
The Intel Core i5 and i7 processors give you much more computing power than the older Core Duo and Core 2 Duo processors. Don’t be confused by the processor speeds. You may notice that some older Macbook Pro laptops with Core 2 Duo processors have the same speed as newer ones with Quad Core i7 processors. The Quad Core i7 Macbook Pros are many times faster. Comparing different Macbook Pros by processor speed only makes sense when you are comparing systems with the same type of processor, like Quad Core i7 or Dual Core i5.
When selecting your discount Macbook Pro by Processor Type, this is how they rank from slowest to fastest:

The refurbished MacBook Pro 15-inch laptops at GainSaver, from the earliest to the most recent models, offer the features you need for business applications.

Some features are not available in all refurbished Macbook Pros. Macbook Pro systems introduced up to 2012 have built-in optical drives, while the ones introduced since then do not.

Other ports also vary depending on when the system was introduced, so make sure to use the Compare feature to find the features you need.
The GainSaver website makes it easy to search, find and compare used Macbook Pro laptops.
15-inch Macbook Pro laptops with Dual Graphics
One feature that is unique to the 15.4-inch Macbook Pros is Dual Graphics, which is available on selected systems. Macbook Pros enabled with Dual Graphics are the heavyweight performance champions. They have an additional NVIDIA graphics card built in, along with the Iris Pro Graphics processor integrated into the Intel processor. The specific NVIDIA card varies, depending on the system.
At GainSaver, the extremely popular Dual Graphics Macbook Pros can be recognized by “(Retina DG)” in the name. The Retina DG Macbook Pro laptops are specially designed for video creation. With two graphics cards, you get greater speed and generate more frames per second in your video production projects. When you are not working on projects that require the additional capabilities, you can switch to the other graphics card to reduce the power drain on the battery.

Do you need a Retina display on your refurbished Macbook Pro?
Perhaps the most noticeable change in the Macbook Pro since it was first introduced by Apple in 2006 is the Retina display. The powerful Intel processors give the Macbook Pro the capabilities of a desktop computer. And with a Retina display, the Macbook Pro has the equivalent of a desktop monitor built in. Of course, the physical size is smaller, but the resolution of the Retina display on the 15.4-inch Macbook Pro is an amazing 2880 x 1800 pixels!
