With Apple and other tech giants releasing a whole new fleet of smartphones and laptops every year, it can be hard to resist the allure of the Next Big Thing. But if you needed some incentive to buy refurbished gear this year, here are two big reasons: First and foremost, you can now get a 13.3″ Apple MacBook Air for $355.
That’s a serious drop in price from what new laptops cost today, or even what this model cost when it was originally put on the market in 2017. In part, the discount is just part of the savings you get for buying used. It’s also thanks to a promo we’re running through Feb. 23 to encourage the market for refurbished tech, which can make a huge dent in the tons of electronic waste the industry produces.
For most users, this Macbook Air will get the job done just as well as today’s laptops, no matter what the job is. It’s grade “A” refurbished, which means it’s like new minus some minor scuffing at most. It packs a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5 processor that’s capable of handling multiple big tasks at once. It’s also got an impressive 54Wh lithium‑polymer battery that’s capable of running for 12 hours, which makes it ideal as a vacation media player or remote workstation.
Other perks include an Intel HD 6000 graphics card that will make your favorite movies and games shine, not to mention the 13.3″ widescreen display. There’s 128GB of flash storage for all your photos and documents, and it comes fully set up for wi-fi or connection to your Bluetooth peripherals.
That’s a lot of functionality for not a lot of dough, but this deal won’t last forever. You can now get this 13.3″ Macbook Air for $355 through Feb. 23.
