Apple Now Offering Refurbished 11.6-inch MacBook Airs
Apple is now offering refurbished MacBook Air models at a 15% discount. Itís quite remarkable that Apple would already be selling refurbished MacBook Air models so soon after introducing them. Currently, Apple is selling the 11.6-inch model with 2 GB of RAM and 128 GB solid-state drive for $1,019 and the 13.3-inch model with 2 GB and 256 GB solid-state drive for $1,349. Thatís a savings of $180 and $250 respectively.
Buying refurbished computers can be a great way to save some money. Apple refurbís come with a full 1-year warranty and are tested and certified. Personally, I have never had any problems buying refurbished equipment and have had a pretty good track record so far.
If you live in a state with a high sales tax like California, you may find better deals online than from Apple directly. Apple also charges a recycling fee with every Mac purchase. Shopping online where sales tax is not an issue and there arenít any extra fees, may be a better way to go for some people.
This is still a great deal if youíre in the market for a nearly new MacBook Air. A MacBook Air may not have the fastest CPU in the world, but it will beat the pants off of a Dell 10v Hackintosh like the one I have, any day. Of course, it cost less than a quarter of what of an authorized MacBook Air costs.
