TL;DR: Pick up a refurbished MacBook Air (Core i5, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD) for only $262.99 (reg. $399) — that's an extra 34% in savings.
A brand-new laptop may feel fun and exciting, but that price might not be worth it if you don't actually need the latest hardware. Instead, shopping refurbished deals might be a more budget-friendly (and eco-friendly) way to score a device with hardware that matches the tasks you need it for. A new MacBook Air can really set you back, but a refurbished one — like this 2015 MacBook Air — may be easier to budget for. And for only $262.99, you might be surprised what it can still do.
Why pay for new when you can save on new-to-you?
Whether you like to work on the go or you're a desktop user who doesn't want to be landlocked at home anymore, this laptop is lightweight and great for managing daily tasks. If you're looking for a high-spec gaming computer, this may not be the optimal laptop for you. The Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, and Turbo Boost may be a better match for apps like Microsoft Office or Google Workspace.
Take your work on the road with a long battery life. On a full battery, you could get up to 12 hours of operation out of this MacBook. For remote workers, that may mean a whole shift where you don't have to think about where the nearest outlet is. When you're traveling, you can just relax and watch the latest movies or shows, thanks to its Intel HD Graphics 6000 and 13-inch backlit screen.
If you've shopped for refurbished tech before, then you know to check the grade on each item. This one has a grade "B" rating, so you might notice some light superficial scratches or dings, but they won't affect operation at all.
