Refurbished and ready to go

The only signs that this MacBook isn’t brand new are superficial. You might notice some little scuffs or scratches on the body, but you can cover those with the black snap-on case that’s also included. 

For a low price, what you’d be getting is a machine that could last up to nine hours on a single charge and has a 128GB hard drive, plenty of room for apps, and local file storage. School isn’t all work and no play. Stream movies in fantastic color on an 11.6-inch backlit display powered by an Intel HD Graphics 6000 GPU. You can also sync your Bluetooth headphones if you don’t want to bug your roommate. 

Light and bright, this laptop only weighs a little over two pounds. It’d make a great computer to take to classes(opens in a new tab) or to travel with for field trips and conferences. One of the benefits of using an older model MacBook is that it has a few more ports than newer versions. This one comes with two USB 3 ports and a connection for Thunderbolt 2 cables.
