Update: The $599 listing appears to be going in and out of stock right now.

The updated MacBook Air that was released late last month motivated Apple to drop prices of refurbished models and as a result the 2012 11-inch Air hit $599 with free shipping. That model sold out within hours of going live but is now back in-stock available for purchase. This deal nets you a 64GB MacBook for the same prices as a 32GB iPad Air.

This specific model features a 1.7GHz dual-core Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, and a 1366×768 resolution. We expect this deal to sell out quickly again.

All refurbished Apple gear includes a full 1-year warranty (same as new items) and are generally in ‘like-new’ condition. apple-refurb-macbook-air-2012
