2015 model. I'm no pro on computers but seems like a pretty slick deal

Can anyone chime in? Is it a good deal compared to $650 plus tax for newest model on bestbuy (occasional sale) ? If so, good to buy 2 year replacement for around $35 worth it? Thanks in advance

If you really need a mac now, I would go with newest model at $650 it is much better deal. This model has small screen it is hard to do anything other then browse and send emails.

I dont see how they could really "refurbish" it beyond wiping it down with a Clorox wipe and using canned air to blow out any dust. So assume you are buying used with unknown battery capacity.

That being said, very little has changed between the current macbook air and this one.

Only real caveat is the 4GB RAM but it does have a pci-e x2 SSD in it so it should be very snappy.

I really dont see how you can justify an additional $300 + tax. This has more or less the same technical capabilities that any new one has (excepting the RAM).

If you can live with "refurbished" and an 11 inch screen its a great deal.

I would say try it, if you want the mac. I was a skeptic till this year. Scooped up a 17" macbook pro, older model, for $127 and a 2012 15" for 300. Maxed out the ram and installed an ssd in each and am pleased so far. As a statistician, I use Excel a lot and it moves along, even with big data sets. However, others may prefer a pc at this price point. Pick what you like and which runs your software of choice. Hope this helps.

If you're looking for an 11 inch this seems to be the best deal out there even compared to ebay and Craigslist deals where you see them being sold for $400-500. I'm just worried about the battery cycle count.

Thank you OP! This is exactly the deal I was looking for. Looking to replace my iPad Pro 9.7 inch with Apple Smart Keyboard for something just as portable but with more computing power.

Update:
After reading some reviews about itechdeals website I'd be wary on buying this. I searched "refurbished" on their review forum and the reviews aren't that great. I'm gonna have to pass on this deal but YMMV.

Nice deal. For those worried about screen size...used external monitors can be found quite cheap, and new 23''+ ones for under $80, which is a huge improvement for most any laptop screen, not just for this 11''. I gave my wife one of these and an external monitor and she used it 40hr/week for 3 years at her nonprofit with no complaint. It has sufficient power for 90% of people's needs (obviously not the best choice for heavy video/photo editing, gaming, heavy 3d rendering ,etc).

Best Buy deal is better if you have the extra cash to put in. I wouldn't buy this at all. Rather get a windows laptop at this price point, would be far superior.
Have you ever used a $350 Windows laptop? I have one and I prefer my 2008 MacBook Pro for just about everything

I would consider this equivalent to a chrome book. Can browse the web and do light office work. Dont expect it to do much more
absolutely an understatement....... macbook has much more use than a chrome book.
