Apple trims prices on refurbished MacBook Airs
Certain refurbished models of Apple's lightweight laptop can now be had for anywhere from 15 percent to 29 percent off the usual price.
Consumers in the market for a MacBook Air can now save a fair amount of cash on a refurbished unit.
Apple has cut its prices on several factory-refurbished MacBook Air editions. A tour of the company's Refurbished product page reveals an 11.6-inch, 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 model selling for $749, 16 percent off the normal price. This flavor offers 2GB of memory and 64GB of flash storage.
A similar version but with 4GB of memory and 128GB of flash storage is selling for $829, a 17 percent cut off the usual price. And a 13.3-inch model with 2GB of memory, 256GB of flash storage, and an Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics adapter is going for $1,059, a full 29 percent off the standard price.
As refurbished units, most of the MacBook Airs aren't the latest models. Some date from last year, a few date from 2010.
Only one unit on sale is a 2012 edition -- an 11.6-inch 1.7GHz machine selling for $929, a discount of 15 percent off the usual price.
Free shipping is included in the deal, and as always, Apple offers a full one-year warranty on each purchase.
