Woot’s sale today is so stunning that it lets you walk away with a certified refurbished 10.5-inch 2017 iPad Pro for as little as $400. If it’s not clear how good of a deal that is, consider that Apple’s bare-bones 9.7-inch iPad starts at $329 at retail. And that’s not all. Today’s sale also lets you get a certified refurbished 512GB 12-inch MacBook for a mere $949, and that’s easily one of the lowest prices we’ve seen on this discontinued model.
There’s a lot to choose from, so be sure to check out Woot’s entire sale on 2017 MacBooks and iPad Pros. I’d act quickly, too, as the 256GB 12-inch MacBook was on sale for a nearly unbelievable $760 earlier this morning, but it sold out while I was writing this up. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you won’t even have to pay for shipping.
And don’t let the “refurbished” part scare you off. These refurbished models were certified by Apple itself, which means there’s an extremely high chance that they’re in good working order. Unfortunately, they don’t come with an Apple warranty, so Woot is offering its own 90-day limited warranty instead.
Check out our review of the 2017 iPad Pro for more information. We gave it a perfect score back then and said that “if any iPad replaces the MacBook, it’s this one.” That statement still carries a lot of weight, especially in light of the big operating system changes coming with iPadOS 13.
You’ll also want to check out our review of the 2017 12-inch MacBook. I loved this machine more than any other Mac, and I was sad to see it go. We gave it 4.5 out of five mice back in 2017, and we were careful to emphasize that it’s for people who value portability over lots of ports or power. It also only comes with a single USB-C port, for example, although I found that wasn’t as hard to live with as I initially imagined.
