Fortunately, Woot is offering a couple of MacBook Pro models (opens in new tab) on sale from just $869.99 today only. The refurbished models are 13-inch machines from mid-2017 that have been reconditioned by Apple to bring them back to like new condition. They are backed by a 90-day Woot warranty and ship free if you log in with an Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) account, otherwise it's an additional $6.

Apple Watch Series 6

From $329

Apple Watch Series 6 models are available for some of their best prices ever right now. The lowest price is on the red 40mm version which is $70 off with 44mm and cellular models seeing discounts of up to $91.

Both of the models on sale are the non-Touch Bar versions of the machine with two Thunderbolt 3 ports. Each is equipped with an Intel Core i5-7360U 2.3GHz processor, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 and 8GB RAM. The entry-level model features a 128GB SSD for $869.99. This configuration would cost you $1,099.99 brand new (opens in new tab). Alternatively, you can double storage for just $100 more which saves you $230 off the current cost of the same machine at Amazon (opens in new tab). While supplies last, you can snap up either model in your choice of space gray or silver.

While the MacBook Pro got an update (opens in new tab) just a few months back, there's relatively little difference between the current 13-inch model and the previous-gen on the spec sheet. Unless you need to squeeze every bit of power out of your machine (or really want the Touch Bar), you can save big by going for these discount Apple-refurbished models.
