Earlier this summer, MacWorld rated the latest version of Apple’s highly popular MacBook Air by calling it “just right for almost any user.” Superlatives are nothing new when it comes to the ultra-thin, ultra-powerful laptop model that has become the perfect business standard between the handheld power of iPhones and iPads and the more labor-intensive tasks of the desk-bound iMac.
The real secret of the MacBook Air, of course, is that it has been a leading machine for the past 15 years. Instead of losing $1,200 on the latest model, step back a few generations and still enjoy premium computing power with a refurbished MacBook Air for just $290.99, nearly 80% off the regular price.
While this 2014 model certainly doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of its new little brother, you’d probably still be surprised at how well this laptop handles modern workflow. With a premium 1440p resolution display and a blistering dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, this MacBook Air is ready for all your personal and professional projects, supported by 4GB RAM, an Intel HD Graphics 5000 graphics card, a 720p iSight camera, 256 GB of storage and up to 12 hours of battery life.
Each refurbished unit has also been thoroughly inspected and tested to deliver peak performance, with just a few light marks or scratches to show its age.
Save nearly $1,000 off the price of buying a new one and get this MacBook Air now for just $299.99 while this offer lasts.
