TL; DR: As of May 15, this Apple MacBook Air 13″ (2015) i5, 1.6GHz 8GB RAM 128GB has been on sale for just $388.99. A new one would cost $1,249, so you’re getting 68% off on the same computer.


We’ve all wondered for over a decade if the costs of Apple products are worth the squeeze, but now, with runaway inflation showing no signs of stopping, the resounding answer is no. There’s simply no reason a pair of headphones should cost more than $500. Or that a computer costs more than a few months’ rent (even if it’s a killer laptop for creators).

Instead of draining your bank account, save hundreds or even thousands of dollars by getting a refurbished MacBook Air. This packs a 1.6GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Sure, it’s not an M1 chip or 1TB of storage, but it’ll still get the job done and satisfy your Apple craving.

This 13-inch MacBook Air is from 2015, meaning only four models were released after it. In the grand scheme of things, it’s not that long. It’s not deprecated yet, which means you can still have the hardware repaired by Apple, should you ever need it. Additionally, third-party vendors can still order parts for repairs if needed. This model has been refurbished to perform like you just bought it off the shelf in 2015, so you should be solid. There may be a few scratches or scuffs on the case or body, but the interior parts are all working A-OK.

Here’s a quick unboxing video to show you all the specs:

This particular model is silver and comes with two USB 3.0 ports and an SD card slot. While that’s not a lot, it does mean you can plug in some of your accessories without needing an external USB hub. Its 13.3-inch widescreen LED-backlit display offers 1440 x 900 resolution and a built-in FaceTime HD camera. And of course it has Bluetooth capabilities, which is a bonus considering some older models don’t have this simple luxury.

The best part, of course, is that this new MacBook Air will only cost you $388.99, down from its original cost of $1,249.
