Apple drops price of refurbished MacBook Airs to as low as $599

updated 11:43 am EDT, Tue April 29, 2014

Cheapest models date back to 2012

In the wake of Apple revealing 2014 models, refurbished MacBook Airs have received substantial price cuts. 2012 models are now as cheap as $599; that gets buyers a 11.6-inch screen, 4GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD, and a dual-core 1.7GHz Core i5 processor. Several other 2012 and 2013 configurations are also available, with improved screen sizes, processors, and/or SSDs.

The shift may be important in that Apple has never before offered the Air for so little money. While the 2012 models are no longer competitive with comparably-priced Windows laptops, they are now the cheapest entry point for people wanting a Mac aside from the Mac mini, which was last updated in 2012.

All refurbished Airs are tested and include new one-year warranties.

    Yup, they've already been cleared out. I watch for the Minis and they disappear about as fast as they show up, too.
