Already retails refurbed iOS devices
According a leaked shot of an inventory screen that appears to be authentic, videogame retailer GameStop may soon be expanded the presence of Apple products in its stores. The company may be adding some types of refurbished MacBooks to its lineup if the listings shown in the picture are any indication. GameStop already sells refurbished iPhones, iPods, iPod Touch and iPads, game site Kotaku reports.
The pictures (below), sent in by an anonymous GameStop employee, shows three MacBook models along with the store's usual inventory of console gaming equipment and accessories. The specs indicate that the models are refurbished older units, selling for used-level prices. A 2GHz 13-inch MacBook is listed for $460, meaning it is likely a 2006 or 2007 model, along with a 1.4GHz 11-inch MacBook Air ($750) and a 17-inch MacBook Pro of recent vintage for $2,100.
Gamers can trade in gaming consoles and games for credit, and have recently been able to also trade in older and recent iOS devices. The trade-ins can be used for store credit towards another item, or the customer can take cash for 20 percent less than the store credit. [via Kotaku]
