Macbook Air-MC969LL:A-sale-01

Apple has recently added the 2014 MacBook Air to the refurbished section of the Apple Online Store. Currently, the 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 11-inch MacBook Air is available in two configurations priced at $769 and $929, with 128 GB and 256 GB SSD’s respectively. 13-inch Air’s have also been in the store at various times in the last couple of days, so should return once Apple replenishes their refurbished inventory. These reduced prices are equivalent to around 15% savings in comparison new models from Apple’s site. The products were added two days ago, and have been lapsing in and out of stock constantly, so — like much of Apple’s refurbished offerings — quantities are obviously limited.

expiredApple refurbished 11-inch MacBook Air w/ 1-year warranty for $599 is back in stock

Update (7/14 7:15pm): Apple Online is once again stocking the 11.6-inch refurbished MacBook Air for $599.

Update:  The below $599 MacBook Air deal is now out of stock, but  you can still grab the seller refurbished version for $500 on eBay

The Apple certified refurbished online store has restocked the entry level June 2012 11.6-inch MacBook Air for $599 with free shipping. While you can get a ‘seller refurbished’ Air for less, we think many readers will prefer to buy from Apple direct to get a 1-year warranty (w/ option to add Applecare).

This specific model features a 1.7GHz dual-core Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, and a 1366×768 resolution. This deal nets you a 64GB MacBook for the same prices as a 32GB iPad Air. We expect this deal to once again sell out quickly.

Oh, in case you need a new iPhone to go with your new MacBook…

expiredApple refurbished 11-inch MacBook Air w/ 1-year warranty for $599 is back in stock

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.
