Amazon offers Apple’s 2017 12-inch MacBook 512GB in Gold for $1,299 shipped. Also at B&H with potential tax savings. That’s good for $300 off and a match of our previous mention. The entry-level 256GB model is also $100 off at Amazon and B&H. Apple’s ultra-portable 12-inch MacBook sports USB-C connectivity, a Retina display and Force Touch Trackpad. Great for students and commuters alike.

Be sure to grab a USB-C hub to connect any legacy devices with your savings. We recommend this affordable option from AmazonBasics for $16.
