Apple drops refurbished MacBook Air to $699

updated 06:45 pm EST, Wed December 7, 2011

Other models of MBA also available

The year-ago ultrathin 11.6-inch MacBook Air model, using a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo chip, has turned up on Apple's refurbished section at $699, a new low price point for the model. Other MacBook Airs are also on sale, including an identical model with 128GB of storage rather than 64GB for $100 more. The $699 model includes 2GB of RAM, 64GB of flash drive storage and NVidia GeForce 320M graphics.

Apple Refurb section is currently well-stocked with Intel Core 2 Duo models, all from the October 2010 revision that introduced the current form factor, battery and weight for the 13.3 and 11.6 inch models. The revision proved very popular, so much so that the later 2011 revision changed little in terms of exterior appearance (inside, the processor was moved to the iX class, the graphics chipset was improved, and the company swapped out the MiniDisplayPort for a Thunderbolt port).

Additional models listed in the shop include an 11.6-inch model with 64GB of storage but 4GB of RAM for $849 (the RAM is not user-upgradable on these models), a 13.3-inch 1.86GHz model with 128GB of storage and 2GB of RAM for $899 (25 percent off its original price), an 11.6-inch 1.6GHz model with 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM for $1,049, a 13.3-inch 1.86GHz model with 2GB of RAM and 256GB flash storage for $1,099 ($400 off the original price) and a 13.3-inch 2.13GHz model with 4GB RAM and 256GB storage for $1,369.

Quantities are limited and may disappear from the refurb store at any time. All refurbished products come with a standard 1-year Apple warranty, and the opportunity to buy AppleCare extended warranties, just the same as new equipment.

    A massive update is on the way

    Really nothing to worry about, but I am sure Apple is going to have a preemptive strike on all fronts on all of the product lines. Mid-cycle or not, an imminent update is in store.
