Trying to find a used Mac, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air to replace my 2009 MBP as a DAW. What are some reputable sites or places to get a refurb/used Mac?

Best place for anything Mac.
https://www.macsales.com

They always have good prices on used ones and upgrade parts.
https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/Apple_Systems/Used/Macs_and_Tablets

Local Craigslist can be good too.

On my first day at my job in June, 2017, my boss took me to an Apple Store and got me a MacBook. I got laid off last week and asked if I could buy it from them. Our tech guy asked me to send him a screenshot of the machine's info, which read 2015. Big boss told me I could have it for $780. But I'm pushing for a freebie, as they have no use for it, aren't replacing me and it will just sit on a shelf somewhere. He's getting back to me any day now.

Yeah, I’ve bought from them before. Wanted to see what other options there might be.

Asking for $780 is weird, it's probably the amortized value they still have on it. But accepting cash from exiting employees is tricky, writing off the loss is easier. You should be able to hang onto it.

I have a 2012 Mac Mini i7 quad core if you’re interested. Maxed out memory and SSD drive. Makes a great recording/DAW machine.

Last I checked, similar specs were going for anywhere between $600-$800. I would do $500 shipped.
