Testing & Checks

CheshireMacs thoroughly tests all our used Macbooks and iMacs before they are offered. This process makes sure that they meet all the original specifications and functioning (the same as when new).

If anything fails the extensive diagnostic testing, all parts are replaced only using original Apple parts. The work is carried out by our trained technicians to make absolutely sure all computers meet up to their original specifications.


Grade A = Great Condition

This grade represents the majority of our range. You will get a fully working machine with minimal marks or scuffs at an amazing price.

Products may have light cosmetic (barely noticeable) scratching/scuffs on lid. The underside base panels might have slightly heavier marks or scratches being consistent with being placed on surfaces over time. CheshireMacs are very fair and strict on the grading but please remember these are not brand new so will have some signs of use, but anything deemed to look a little too worn is automatically graded as B.

​Grade B = Very Good Condition

These are the same as Grade A but will have one small cosmetic issue which will be shown in a photo attached to the product listing. This could be a heavier scratch or small dent, and will come with a discount which will vary in relation to the extent.

​Grade C = Good Condition

This grade is good but more of a bargain. You will still get a fully working machine but it may have more marks or deeper scratches than our Grade A. There might be small dents or deeper scratches. We will attach a photo of anything that visually stands out with a description of why it’s a Grade C so you can see what you will be getting.

There may be faint scratches or small areas where the anti-glare coating has come away on the screen. These, however, will not be visible when the screen is on and won't affect use.
