Apple is one of the only companies that almost never sells their products at a discount. The only time you can get a significant bargain is when you take advantage of their education pricing, trade in your old MacBook that gathers dust, wait around for Black Friday, or buy refurbished.

If you don’t need the latest and the greatest, going the refurbished route may turn out to be your smartest decision. You’re still getting a perfectly functioning device in near-mint condition at a quarter of the price of newer models, and if there are any components that were replaced, you can rest assured that they’re all genuine Apple parts. You’ll be helping the environment, too, since you’re not purchasing a brand new unit. If it so happens that you’re in the market for a MacBook Air, you can buy a refurbished version of the 2015 edition for only $250 during our Back to Education sale that lasts until 8/24.

This MacBook Air may be a few years behind, but it’s designed to take on the modern worker’s most demanding tasks without compromising portability and usability. It has a 13.3-inch screen display that lets you enjoy crystal clear content, a 4GB ram that smoothly runs your apps, games, and browser simultaneously, and an Intel Core i5 processor that boots and runs apps faster.

It also features an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam for video chats and communication, along with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity for easy transferring of files and connecting to wireless networks. With the combination of the stunning Retina display and powerful processor, you have a device ideal for browsing and working anywhere you go.

This refurbished MacBook Air usually retails for $1,199, but you can get it on sale for $250 during our Back to Education event that runs until Aug. 24 Part of the proceeds will be donated to a school or charity, and you’ll get to vote on where your donation goes.
