Working from home and need a computer upgrade? The mid-2019 Apple MacBook Air isn't usually this affordable, but today only, you can grab one in refurbished condition at Woot for only $739.99. That's hundreds of dollars less than you'd pay for a brand new model and even less than Apple charges it its refurb store.

There's very little reason not to opt for a refurbished model over a brand new laptop with deals like this. Not only do you save big, but these models are also refurbished directly by Apple and come with a 1-year warranty from Woot. Apple's ensured they're in working condition and the quality you'd expect from the company, so the only thing you'll likely notice is different than a new model is the packaging it comes it.
