Refurbished 12-inch MacBook Stories February 11, 2016

expired12-inch Retina MacBook $300 off across the board at B&H, prices start at just $999 – tax only in NY

B&H Photo has the deal of the year so far on Apple’s 12-inch Retina MacBook. The New York City-based Apple authorized reseller that only charges sales tax to New York residents knocks $300 off all Retina Macbooks. That means that the base model 1.1GHz/256GB starts at $999 shipped in Gold, Silver and Space Gray.  That’s $100 less than Apple charges for a refurbished unit ($1,099), a match for the lowest general sale price we’ve ever seen and within $50 of our lowest .edu mention (note: both of the previous all-time low deals included tax at purchase). Discount expires Feb 15 ’16 at 11:59 PM EST.

Step up to 512GB of storage for $1299 (also $300 off)

The faster processor models are also $300 off and start at $1449.

Refurbished 12-inch MacBook Stories January 22, 2016

You now have another option for saving a few bucks on a new MacBook. Apple just began selling its 12-inch ultra-thin laptop in refurbished condition. Prices currently range from $1,099 to $1,489 with free shipping. The entry-level model typically sells for $1,299 in new condition. It features a 2304 x 1440 resolution at 226 pixels per inch, a Force Touch trackpad and redesigned ‘butterfly’ keyboard. Apple refurbished items include a full one-year warranty, are eligible for AppleCare, and from what I’ve seen, generally come in great shape with little to no signs of use.

These prices are decent if you can’t wait for a deal to come around, but with some patience you should be able to get a new unit near or below Apple’s refurbished prices. For example, the high-end 512GB model is currently on sale for just $1,289.99 (Reg. $1,599) and we’ve seen the 256GB model drop as low as $950 (Reg. $1,299). expand full story
