Microsoft registered refurbisher... so they paid a fee to Microsoft and that is supposed to instill confidence? laugh out loud

Good deal for the Apple diehard fan who wants a cheap way to run those OSX exclusive applications. The short warranty is making me hesitant though. At least these older gen Apple laptops are able to be taken apart with a screwdriver. The newer ones are glued shut which makes opening them for repairs a risky adventure.

Move on, unless you absolutely, desperately want an apple computer.

Nope, way better to spend a little extra on a sale at Best Buy with an edu coupon. This thing is 5 years old...

I have a hard time imagining that this is a good deal for anyone. I recently bought a 2015 13" MBA with 8GB RAM for $730 from Best Buy, and sold a 2012 13" MBA in pristine condition for $450 on CL. Given especially that the battery in this model is probably used and will need to be replaced sooner rather than later, the real cost incurred is closer to $530. A couple of facts figured into this calculation: a new battery from Apple costs $130 or so, and aftermarket batteries tend to be terrible. I had replaced the battery on my older MBA with a $70 replacement from Anker, who had the highest reviews on Amazon. It, too, completely crapped out in 4 months.

Seriously, who would buy this. You can get a pc with the same specs for less than $100, and who would buy a 5 year old pc. I love Apple hipsters! Sure let's pay 3-4 times as much for a couple good apps!

Most of the other comments in this thread are threadcrapping garbage.

This is a lukewarm deal. It's close to Craigslist value with no warranty. So for getting a refurb with short warranty, it's pretty good.

Having to deal with a half a dozen of this gen model for work, these run so hot compared to 2012 and later due to Core Power usage in that small chassis. You can get a 2 year old model for 100 more and its money well spent especially considering the expanded battery life and storage.

I bought this very same battery. Can you tell me more? Did you have any signs of failure leading up to it?
