Grading & Quality

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 highly skilled 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.

Batteries & Chargers

Batteries are covered under the warranty for 3 Months. All the batteries are tested and made sure they are functioning normally.

The charging adapters might be slightly marked but are always Apple original and in perfect working order.
