Today only, Best Buy is taking $350 off Apple’s 12-inch MacBook 512GB in multiple colors. Prices start at $1,249.99, making this a match of the best new condition offer we’ve seen this year. Apple usually charges $1,599 for these models.
While this is a solid deal, there is a way to save even more. Best Buy offers “open-box excellent – certified” models for as little as $1,099.99. That’s $500 off a MacBook that “has been professionally cleaned, looks brand new and includes original parts and accessories.” You’ll need to scroll to the ‘buying options’ section at the bottom of each listing to see which colors are available.
Apple’s 12-inch MacBook features a fresh and “lightweight” design with a 2304 x 1440 Retina display. It comes with a 1.1GHz m3 or 1.2GHz m5 Intel Core processor, 8GB of RAM and either of 256GB or 512GB flash storage. Additional specs include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a Force Touch Trackpad.
The moment you open your MacBook, its gorgeous 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. Every photo leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. Over 3 million pixels render each letter with crystal clarity. And it all comes to light on the thinnest Retina display ever on a Mac, meticulously honed to deliver a bold visual experience within an impossibly minimal design. We believe that a comfortable, full-size keyboard is essential for a great notebook experience. But to fit one into the elegantly thin MacBook, we had to completely rethink how a keyboard is engineered and constructed. We redesigned each key and its underlying mechanism — not only making the whole keyboard much thinner, but also allowing for more comfortable, precise, and responsive typing that just feels right.
