TL;DR: As of June 12, you can get a refurbished MacBook Air 11″ Core i5, 4GB RAM 128GB SSD worth $599 new for just $288.99. That’s savings of 51%.
Upgrading means something different to everyone. For some, it means snagging the latest and greatest devices on the market. For others, it means ditching their ancient device for another one that works, regardless of how new it is. If you fall into the latter group and you’re looking to upgrade your laptop, consider this deal on a refurbished MacBook Air.
The MacBook Air in question hails from 2015, has 4GB of RAM, and 128GB SSD storage. It’s on sale for only $288.99, which is practically unheard of for a MacBook of any kind. Considering it originally retailed for $899 and is currently worth $599, that’s a pretty solid deal. Plus, you can pat yourself on the back for reducing waste by buying someone else’s pre-loved product. Win-win.
The 2015 MacBook Air runs on a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, has an 11.6-inch widescreen TFT LED-backlit glossy display, and integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam, all packed into a razor-thin, 2.3-pound aluminum case. Speaking of which, with a grade “B” refurbished rating, the case itself might have some light scuffing or scratching, but nothing too drastic. The actual inner makeup has been refurbished to work as good as new.
While 2015 seems like centuries ago, it’s not really all that long in the grand scheme of things. The laptop hasn’t hit Apple’s vintage or obsolete list of products yet, so it’ll still be eligible for hardware repairs at Apple should anything go wrong. Plus, third-party providers can still order parts for repairs if necessary.
Rather than paying $2,000 or more for the top-of-the-line MacBook when you don’t necessarily need it, snag a refurbished MacBook Air instead for a mere fraction of that price. Upgrading doesn’t have to be a costly endeavor.
