This 2017 MacBook is an insanely good deal at $799 (Update: sold out)

Originally $1,299, this 12-inch Apple laptop comes with a 256GB solid-state drive and Retina display.

This won't last long, so I'll make it quick. This is one of the best MacBook deals I've ever seen.

Today only, and while supplies last, B&H has the 2017 Apple MacBook MNYK2LL/A in gold for $799 shipped. It originally sold for $1,299, and the best price I've seen elsewhere is over $1,000.

This model features an Intel Core m3 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and Apple's coveted high-resolution Retina display.

I've never been a Mac user, but Dan Ackerman's MacBook 2017 review declared that "Apple's mini MacBook gets it right." Remember: While a new, 2019 12-inch MacBook could theoretically drop at any time, this is the current version of Apple's 12-incher -- one that currently sells at Apple's own store for $1,299.

Deals like this (current model, non-refurbished, big price drop) are rare, so I expect this to sell out quickly. Hope you have the chance to grab one!
