TL;DR: This refurbished MacBook Air can be your laptop for all of life's needs, from school to work and beyond. Just in time for back to school, it's on sale for only $299.97 until August 13!

It's fall time, which means all the students tread back to their books and try to remember how to use a pen. For those of us who never want to forget how to be scholastic, it's probably best that we keep up to date all year round.

If your looking for a new computer but don't want to pay a million dollars, this pre-owned 13.3" MacBook Air is both a fantastic Apple product and relatively inexpensive. Fortunately, it's now dropped to only $299.97 (reg. $1109) as part of our Back-to-School Sale, but only until August 13 at 11:59 pm Pacific!

This machine has it all, so let's get into it. With an Intel Core i5 processor and HD Graphics 6000 processor, everything gets to you at the speed of light, so you're never behind on assignments, message board posts, or drama in the comments of peer-reviewed papers.

For those of us who need to see the bigger picture a bit better, the 13.3" LED-backlit glossy widescreen display gives you an up close and personal look at all of the work you keep piling up. And, with 12 hours of battery life after a full charge, you can get it all done as long as you don't procrastinate (pro tip: try the Pomodoro Method).

With 256GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, This MacBook Air also includes plenty of space for, not just your school documents, but for your personal pictures, vids, and other media you like keeping front and center.

Need to have a little bit of sound hooked in? The Bluetooth capabilities allow you to pair any listening device and jump into those online classes with ease (just make sure the rest if your music is off, I don't think that one professor likes SKA bands).

We also understand the hesitancy of buying a product that isn't brand new. Let us cool some of those jets for you. With a Grade B rating, this MacBook Air may have light scuffing on the bevel and case or light scratches and dents on the body. However, that doesn't keep it from being up to Apple product standards.

Grab this refurbished MacBook Air in Silver for just $299.97 (reg. $1109) with no coupon needed. Hurry, this back-to-school deal ends August 13 at 11:59 pm Pacific!
