The Apple ecosystem offers an incredible variety of devices, including laptops. However, joining said ecosystem can be quite pricey, as Apple tends to price its devices extremely high. Buying a refurbished laptop is a more affordable way to join the family, and you can purchase a barely used MacBook Air from 2017 for just $389.99 for a limited time.

This price is available thanks to National Apple Day, which is on October 21. We’re celebrating by offering price drops on favorite Apple refurbs from now through October 21.

Gain powerful capabilities on the move and serious storage

Carrying an Amazon rating of 4.4 out of five and featuring an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Graphics HD 6000 and 8GB of memory, this refurbished MacBook Air can easily handle your daily needs. Of course, you might need more horsepower if you plan on doing serious video editing or graphical workloads, but if you only plan on web browsing and streaming, this laptop will suit you perfectly.

As the name suggests, the 13.3-inch MacBook Air is exceptionally light, weighing just under 3 pounds. Plus, it’s less than an inch thick at its widest, so you’ll hardly notice you’re carrying it if you slip it into your bag. The battery offers up to 12 hours of on-time off a single charge, making it an excellent travel companion or school computer. Video correspondence comes through clearly, thanks to the sharp 1440×900 native resolution. Wi-Fi lets you connect to the web wirelessly, while Bluetooth enables you to sync with your favorite peripherals.

This 2017 MacBook Air earned an A-grade refurbished rating, meaning it will arrive in a near-mint condition with minimal to no scuffing or scratches from previous use. You’ll essentially get a new device without the high price tag, giving it a second life away from a landfill.
