Add a refurbished MacBook to your home office for another layer of productivity

TL;DR: Through Sept. 30, you can get the Refurbished Apple MacBook Pro 13″(opens in a new tab) for just $269.99 instead of $469.99 — that’s a 42% discount.

Instead of buying a second monitor for your work setup, you could grab a whole other laptop for it that can work independently. Normally, it may not be economical to dedicate a whole computer to simple tasks like sending emails or keeping reference tabs open, but if you can get a laptop(opens in a new tab) that’s cheaper than many monitors, that extra level of interactivity may make all the difference. 

This refurbished MacBook Pro has a 13.3-inch LED-backlit display and the characteristic sturdy aluminum build Apple is known for. It’s not brand new, but it could be a great workstation extension, and it’s only $269.99 as part of this Refurbished Event through September 30.

An affordable extension to your home office 

Skip the second monitor and get a whole second computer for your workspace. Use this compact laptop to stay connected on social and professional messaging apps, or throw on a show and stream something while you work. 

With 8GB of DDR3 RAM and 120GB SSD, this MacBook has some great flexibility for multi-tasking too. Respond to work messages while burning your digital movie collection onto disks. Most MacBooks now don’t have a disk drive, but this one has an 8X DL “SuperDrive(opens in a new tab).” Sometimes it pays to have an older device nearby. 

Though it’s a little older, this MacBook Pro has been refurbished to the point that there aren’t many signs that it has been used before. It was given a “B” rating, meaning it may have some light scuffs and scratches, but everything inside should work great. Even the battery is built to last up to seven hours.
