[Tech] Where to Buy 2nd Hand Used Apple MacBook and iMac

If you're wondering where to buy second hand MacBooks and iMacs in Klang Valley, look no further! Zaranet is a shop in Ampang KL that sells used Apple/Mac computers and accessories. Obviously we would all like a new one but the price tag is really scary! I was initially looking through Carousel for MacBooks from individuals but I have trust issues LOL These sellers might be scammers or they're selling defective Macs.
2nd Hand Used MacBook and iMac
After some browsing across various platforms, I found an almost ideal MacBook with a reasonable age, specs and affordable price. I dropped them a message and soon I picked up my MacBook Air from the shop! I suspect mine was from a company as it was connected to various wireless keyboards. I've used it for about 2 months and I'm happy with it so far.

Some pointers when buying from Zaranet:
  • Units are not from Malaysia
  • Units are not from individuals (this could mean companies or display units?)
  • Zaranet will not buy your old unit (no trade in)
  • Comes with short warranty (I believe it was 1 week so check everything in that week!)
  • Keyboard and speakers will be tested on the spot
  • Prices are cheapest on their Zaranet Mudah store

  • They may not have the exact model and spec you want as they're all secondhand units
  • Some minor dents/scratches (they're not new after all~)
  • My battery was due for replacement which will set me back a few hundred but it can function with current battery so didn't bother
  • The jumping cursor issue (solved-they gave me the original charger instead of the earlier 3rd party one after I returned to the shop)
Used MacBooks for sale
There are lots and lots of Macs here so best you browse their Mudah store instead of asking for the specs one by one.

They also sell some accessories here. I got this keyboard protector for free but I hate how it felt so I removed it in the end LOL
