Grab This Refurbished MacBook Pro For Only $255

Although it's an older model, this MacBook Pro deal is a solid option for frugal shoppers.


If you're shopping on a strict budget for a new laptop, brand-new MacBooks will almost always be excluded due to their high prices. Apple products in general are notoriously expensive--and it’s uncommon to see them with steeply discounted price tags. That’s not the case today, however, as you can pick up a refurbished MacBook Pro for just $255. There are a few caveats to the deal, but you’ll definitely want to take a closer look if you’re in the market for a solid laptop for school, work, or anything in between.

Featuring seven hours of battery life, a 500GB HDD, Intel Core i5 processor, and a 13.3-inch display, the specs aren't bad for a laptop from 2012.

All purchases come with a 30-day parts and labor warranty and returns are accepted within 30 days of shipment. Orders are currently expected to arrive before February 12--although that could vary based on your location.

Considering the latest MacBook Pro starts at $2,000, this is a nice way to check out the Mac ecosystem without emptying your bank account. So if you’re a student, content creator, or young professional on a budget, this deal might be considering.
