TL;DR: Need a new laptop? As of May 26, grab a refurbished MacBook Pro for only $449.
Using the same laptop for work and pleasure isn’t always the best idea. Sure, modern devices are built to handle multitasking. But working for eight-plus hours and streaming for even more can start to take a toll on your battery and processing power.
Save your new laptop for your work tasks and get this refurbished MacBook Pro for pleasure. It’s less than $450 for a limited time.
Hailing from 2012 but refurbished by pros to work perfectly well (thought it may have a few light scuffs and scratches), this MacBook Pro packs 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a 2.5GHz Core i5 processor. You’ll also get 120GB of SSD storage. And since it’s an older model, it has plenty of onboard connectivity options.
Its battery will last about seven hours on a single charge and can be powered up quickly and conveniently with the included MagSafe Charger. Plus, you’ll get a black snap-on case to keep it protected for all of your streaming and browsing needs.
Of course, the best part is probably the price. You can snag this refurbished MacBook Pro for a mere $449 for a limited time.
