Killer Deal: 12-inch Refurbished MacBook $420 Off
The 12-inch MacBook costs $1,299 through Apple, which is way too much money for what the laptop offers. But Amazon has a much lower price that seems just right for a refurbished model.
You can currently grab the 12-inch MacBook (mid 2017 model) for just $819 on Amazon. That’s $420 off the price for a new unit.
For the money, you get a 12-inch Retina Display with 2304 x 1440 resolution, a 1.2-GHz Intel Core m3 processors (7th gen), 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The whole package weighs 2.03 pounds, which makes this system easy to throw in a bag and take anywhere. Refurbished means that they are pre-owned products inspected and tested by Amazon-qualified suppliers. It comes with a minimum 90-day supplier-backed warranty.
There are some trade-offs with this laptop, as we found in our 12-inch MacBook review. For one, it features a single USB-C port, so you won’t be able to plug in more than one peripheral at a time unless you spring for a dongle.
But if you want a macOS laptop and you don’t want to spend a lot, this seems like a pretty good deal for a refurbished system.
