For just one day only, Woot has a huge selection of refurbished Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Pro devices (opens in new tab) on sale with prices starting at $499.99. While these models aren't brand new, many have been restored to look like new and all have been tested to ensure they work like new. Woot backs up your purchase with a 90-day warranty, too.

We've seen these sales sell out quickly in the past, so if you're interested you'll want to pick one up sooner than later. The promotion is scheduled to end tonight but some specific configurations are already gone.

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.

The most affordable device on sale is the MacBook Air model from 2015 (opens in new tab) at $499.99, though you can get a more recent 2018 MacBook Air (opens in new tab) for just $100 more.

The newer MacBook Air models on sale feature a 13-inch Retina display, up to 16GB RAM, and Touch ID fingerprint sensor for security. They also have two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports and a battery life of up to 12 hours. With up to 512GB of storage, you'll have plenty of space for documents, photos, music, movies, and more. If you don't want to spend $999 or more on the M1 MacBook Air, this refurb deal is the way to go.

If you want more power or a larger display, you can choose between 13-inch, 15-inch, and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with prices from $649.99. The newest 13-inch MacBook Pro (opens in new tab) in the sale is from early 2020 and is equipped with an Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It's listed as 'Grade B' refurbished meaning it may show some cosmetic blemishes but its price is only $1,009.99.

On the larger end, there are 15-inch MacBook Pro models from 2016 through 2018 with prices from $1,289.99, and the current 16-inch MacBook Pro (opens in new tab) is available for $1,669.99. It's packing an Intel Core i7 2.6GHz processor, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD, though it's also 'Grade B' so may not look new. That being said, this particular configuration goes for nearer $2,200 brand new (opens in new tab).
