Rating: 5/5 Great service as usual May 24, 2016 Bought a refurbished MacBook Pro from OWC to replace my near new MacBook Pro that suffered form an accident and not covered by Apple Care. Not willing to part with another $3000 I bought a refurbished MacBook Pro from OWC. I should have gone down this path in the first place!! The condition was described as VG and I was concerned what that might look like. The computer was packaged fantastically and the condition would not be better if I had bought a new one from Apple. Service and support has been great to date and I will use OWC again. Thanks

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from Apple 15" MacBook Pro Retina (2012) 2.3GHz Quad Core i7 - Used, Excellent condition.
