The “Apple Outlet” page states: Big savings. Limited-time offers. Before we put a pre-owned Mac, iPod, or Apple TV up for sale in the Apple Outlet, it undergoes a rigorous refurbishment process to make sure it’s up to Apple’s tough quality standards. We back it with our standard one-year limited warranty. And you have the option of purchasing an AppleCare Protection Plan for it.
The revamped Apple Outlet features four main sections:
• Refurbished iPod: Find deals on the Apple-certified iPod, iPod nano, or iPod shuffle you’ve always wanted.
• Refurbished Mac: Shop Apple-certified Mac desktops and notebooks at once-in-a-lifetime prices.
• Clearance Items: Get discount prices on new, unopened products from Apple and other manufacturers.
• Big Deals: See special offers, promotions, and other great deals available for a limited time only.
