New year, new you, new iPad? Woot is having a one-day sale on open-box Apple iPad and MacBook models (opens in new tab) for New Year's Day. Though these devices aren't exactly brand new, they are pretty close to it. Open-box items generally have no signs of use — other than the open packaging — and they come with a warranty from Apple, too.
Apart from paying full price, the main thing you miss out on by choosing an open-box model is the full Apple warranty. That being said, all of the devices in this sale have between 60 and 120 days of warranty attached from Apple itself. We've seen these sales sell out quickly in the past, and some models are already gone, so if you're interested you'll want to pick one up sooner than later.
Woot's sale has several different models of MacBook computers in stock currently, all of which are recent models from 2019 or 2020. The most affordable open-box model on sale today is the early 2020 MacBook Air on sale from $879.99 (opens in new tab). It features a 13-inch Retina display, a 10th-gen Intel Core i3 quad-core processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD.
If you have more in your budget to spend on a computer today, the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro with 512GB SSD (opens in new tab) is now on sale for $1,999.99 at Woot. That's quite a discount from its $2,299.99 retail price. Plus it comes with a 60-day warranty.
Meanwhile, various configurations of the Apple iPad are on sale from $309.99 (opens in new tab) currently, including 2019 and the latest 2020 versions (opens in new tab) of the tablet as well as iPad Pro models.
Shipping at Woot is generally $6 per order, though you can score free shipping by logging in with an Amazon Prime account before checking out. If you're not a Prime member already, consider starting a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) to score free shipping at Woot and Amazon. You'll also gain access to all of Prime's usual perks such as the Prime Video streaming service, exclusive members-only discounts (opens in new tab), and much more.
