Founded in 2006, the iPower Resale Group (formerly known as Macinabox, Inc.) is a small, passionate group specializing in the resale of overstock, open box, refurbished, and used Apple® hardware. We are happy to accommodate any customer, from students buying their first laptop to high-end production companies powering the modern entertainment industry, and every unique customer in between. We endeavor to forge a strong relationship with each of our customers, to help ensure that every customer and every business gets the savings and customer service they deserve.

Refurbished usually refers to older stock machines that were either returned under warranty for some reason (buyer's remorse, for example) or that were still in stock when a new generation was released. All of our machines are tested by Apple®-certified technicians, and any faulty hardware is replaced with new or like-new refurbished parts. The end result is a like-new machine at a more reasonable price. To learn more about the cosmetic condition/grading of our machines, click here.

We offer our own warranty on all machines that covers hardware malfunctions. Every sale comes standard with our 90 day warranty, and we also offer a three year extended warranty for $297. You can find more information on our warranty here: Terms and Conditions - Warranty

Most of our machines have been liquidated from Apple stock rooms because they are a previous generation of Apple product. This can include everything from overstock and returns, products that have been discontinued, or in-store demo machines that have been refurbished back to like-new condition. We usually purchase wholesale quantities directly from Apple®, meaning our parts have not been bought one-by-one from private parties.

Here at iPower Resale Group we offer in-house data/software and hardware repairs, restorations, upgrades, and service options.
