Is a Refurbished Mac a Good Idea for my child?

David Hardy

Are you considering a refurbished Mac for your child? If you are in this position it is really important that you invest time into identifying the best option for them. It is more than likely that if your child is of an age where you are considering a Mac, that they will already have a phone. A huge percentage of children are so advanced at using Apple devices from such a young age. It is a different world to where we were a decade ago. Therefore, it is more than likely that they can already identify and work their way around a Mac with ease.

A refurbished Mac will offer a huge cost saving. We all worry about our children using expensive devices. As much as we do try to make sure they appreciate the value of the item, accidents do happen. There are comprehensive insurance policies that you can take out to protect this. Any investment into a Mac is worthwhile protecting and a refurbished model is no different. However, the cost saving can be vast when finding the best model.

Online safety is a huge concern for our children. It is something that we have all had to improve our awareness on. All Apple devices are well-equipped to offer assurance to worried parents. Parental controls are easily accessible and there are clear and concise guidelines on how to set this up. There are different levels of protection, and we are always on hand to offered advice in relation to this.

Which Refurbished Mac is best?

There is no one standard answer to this question. To find the best alternative we will first need details on how your child aims to use the device. Listening to this information allows our knowledgeable team to identify which device will work best. Furthermore, we remain on hand to offer an ongoing customer service. Call today on 01625 415088.

The Gift of an Apple Mac

David Hardy

The invention of the Apple Mac and other Apple devices completely transformed the way we use our laptops, computers and tablets. The truth of the matter is that they are incredible and offer users a great, high-quality experience. So many often comment on people having multiple devices and how youth are always having a device in their hand. The world has changed and its time to start embracing that!

As we approach Christmas, parents everywhere are starting to look for guidance with a present. While our kids may not quite understand the value of money when asking for the latest tech, it is important that they have what they need.

Why an Apple Mac?

Although there are many different types of phone types out there, it is very likely that your child will have an iPhone. Whether it is the latest model or not, they will be very familiar with how to use it. It is much easier to connect and swap between Apple devices. This is often a large reason why parents select an Apple computer over another make. That and their reputation based around being the best on the market.

At CheshireMacs we have come up with a great system where you can split the cost of a refurbished Mac or iPads over 3 months. You are able to purchase through Klarna. This, put simply, means that you can spread the cost of the item without any interest charges over 3 months.

Buying an Apple iMac, MacBook or iPad really is an investment. Every item sold by us leaves us with a 12-month warranty and free delivery. We are a small-business, and a large part of our professional reputation is based around the high-quality service we offer. To us, your opinion matters, and the purchasing process is important to get it right.
