TL;DR: As of Sept. 21, you can pick up a refurbished MacBook Pro (Core i5, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD) for only $268.99 instead of the usual $536.99 MSRP — that's a savings of 49%.

Need a new computer? You might not need to pay as much as you think. If you know the kind of work you’ll be doing, you can look for a refurbished computer that might have hardware suited to your needs.

This refurbished MacBook Pro may be from 2012, but it still has a spacious hard drive and quite a lot more to offer. Plus, the price certainly isn’t one you’d find on a brand-new MacBook. You can get this refurbished MacBook Pro for just $268.99 (reg. $536). 

Only minor scuffs and scratches on this refurbished MacBook Pro

Mac lovers don’t have to pick up the latest MacBook Pro to get plenty of internal storage. On the low end, the latest MacBook Pro has a 512GB hard drive. This one has 500GB. Now, there are plenty of other hardware differences between a modern MacBook Pro and this 2012 model, but that might not be a bad thing. If you’re just browsing, streaming, or using lightweight productivity apps like Microsoft Office, then this computer with 8GB RAM and a 2.5GHz processor could get the job done. 

Plus, you get one thing modern MacBooks definitely don’t have: a disc drive. One of the benefits of an older MacBook is it still has all the ports that have been streamlined out. This one comes with ports for USB-A, 3.5 mm headphones, and ethernet, and it has a dedicated spot for your power cable. 

500GB HDD and 49% off 

Grade “B” refurbished means this computer might have some light scuffs, scratches, or dings on the case or body, but the only thing that really affects is the price.
