The latest 13-inch MacBook Air is now available for purchase from Apple. However, you can save up to $580 dollars by investing in a good-as-new 2019 refurbished MacBook instead.
Apple reconditions its laptops to look and function like new with genuine Apple replacement parts (if needed). Your MacBook refurb even arrives in a crisp, brand new box with all the accessories and cables.
For peace of mind, Apple backs its refurbished MacBooks with a one-year Apple warranty. And since we're just one more sleep away from the release of the new MacBook Air 2020, refurbished 2019 models are on super-sale.
Right now, you can get a refurbished MacBook Air for just $779 (opens in new tab) direct from Apple. This refurbished unit would normally set you back $919, so you're looking at $140 in savings. And, as a reminder, a brand new 2019 MacBook Air retails for $1,099, so you're actually saving $320 in total.

The MacBook Air is one of the best all-around laptops for students and everyday users. It packs a 13.3-inch Retina display, a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage.
In our Apple MacBook Air (2019) review, we were impressed by its crisp, high-resolution Retina display and strong audio. While it only has two Thunderbolt 3 ports onboard, we gave it an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars.
When it comes to performance, the MacBook Air's CPU could use a bit more kick. It has a Y-Series Intel Core i5-8210Y CPU which is great for light/everyday work, but power users may need more horsepower.
As for ports, the MacBook Air has two Thunderbolt 3 ports on the left side, one of which is for charging the notebook. It also has a built-in headphone jack so you can listen to music or podcasts using a wired pair of headphones.
