A brand-new, off-the-shelf computer may be a necessary expense if you need the latest hardware. But for most of us, a refurbished device is a more affordable—and environmentally friendly—option. This refurbished Apple MacBook Air is certified to look and work like new, despite being manufactured in 2017. And right now, it also comes with a separate lifetime license to Microsoft Office Home and Business 2021: You can the computer and Microsoft Office during this Memorial Day sale for $459.99 (reg. $619).
Get a like-new MacBook Air and Microsoft Office for life
This MacBook Air has a 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM, weighs just under three pounds. One benefit of getting an older MacBook is that you still get to use some of the ports that have been phased out. This one has two USB slots, a Thunderbolt 2 port, MagSafe 2 Power, a slot for SDXC cards, and a headphone/mic combo input.
Expanded port access is nice, but because it’s a 2017 model, this MacBook does not have any USB-C ports, and the processor speed is only 1.8GHz. Art students and design professionals may need a newer processor, but this computer could be a good match if you plan on primarily using productivity software like Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
The MS Office license includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams (basic version), and OneNote. Install each program on one computer for life, and you don’t have to budget for monthly payments.
