Cheap Apple Laptops

Updated on June 22, 2010

How can you buy a Cheap Apple Laptop?

Apple laptops are not cheap. One way to get one at a discount is to shop around the Christmas shopping season when Apple is looking to break all previous sales records for the month of December and they lower their prices. But still the Apple computers are not cheap.

So how can you buy a cheap apple laptop? Don't get a new one. There are other options than buying new, which I will discuss. New Apple laptops cost $2,000 on up to $5,000. If you want to spend under $2,000 or even a few hundred dollars, there are other ways.

The Apple Store actually sells a ton of refurbished Apple laptops at a savings of several hundred dollars. They have a refurbished Macbook Air for $1,000. The quality is pretty high on the refurbished laptops as you are getting them straight from the Apple store.

But what if you want to spend less than $1,000? Then you should look around for a used Apple laptop in a variety of places. Apples tend to last quite a bit longer than other brands of laptop, and so they stay in the market for years on end. But most people aren't selling their old Apples unless they are ready to buy a new one. You can take advantage of this opportunity by looking in the newspaper, on Craigslist, search on Amazon for the price range you are looking for, or do a simple Ebay search. Just remember to ask about the battery. Don't expect a new battery, but it should work for more than five minutes.

Want a Really Cheap Laptop?

Apples may just be out of your price range at the moment. No problem. There are a ton of super cheap second-hand laptops you can find for sale in the newspaper and online. There are many under $100 and some for like $25. Just ask if it works. If you just want to be able to send an email or write up a simple Word document, then $50 for a laptop may be just what the doctor ordered. In fact, the software programs alone can be worth the price of a used laptop. But what does the seller care? He's getting a new computer anyway. So take advantage of his lack of need for his old laptop. The battery may not be the best but, again, you can find plenty of computers with a battery that lasts at least a half an hour.
