TL;DR: Through Sept. 4, this refurbished 2012 Apple MacBook Pro is just $255.97 (reg. $536.99) in the Mashable Shop — that's over 52% in savings.


Whether you’re a desktop user, a frequent traveler, a student, or just a casual user, everyone can use a reliable laptop. If you’re looking for a lightweight machine with mid-range specs, extra storage, and an extra low price, a refurbished MacBook Pro might be the way to go. 

This refurbished MacBook Pro has been marked down even more during this Labor Day Sale, which is why you can get it for just $255.97 for a limited time. 

This 2012 MacBook Pro has a 13-inch LED-backlit screen and 8GB RAM. Use it for light productivity, browsing, streaming, and other essential daily computing. The 500GB HDD means you can save a ton of photos and videos, so you can carry around your own video library while you travel.

This MacBook even has a disc drive, a significant benefit of grabbing an older device, as you have to buy those separately for MacBooks now. A modern MacBook would also need a port hub to match everything this one has built in. Connect your Ethernet cable, USB devices, and even your SD card and headphones.

Just because a device is refurbished doesn’t mean it looks used. This one has a B grade, which means it only has very light superficial signs of wear and tear, like faint scratches and scuffs, but it still works great. 

If you need a lightweight computer that you wouldn't be afraid to travel with, this reliable machine should be considered. 

Labor Day is your chance to get this refurbished Apple MacBook Pro for $255.97, but this deal ends September 4 at 11:59 p.m. PT. 

Prices subject to change.
