that is quite a deal, cs.

I want to buy my daughter a new laptop, either a Macbook air or (gulp) a Macbook 12". She wants to play the Sims 4. I've watched videos and yes, Macbook Air and 12" work fine these days. I'll want her to eventually have 512GB, but could upgrade later (if it's upgradeable) if we just got 256GB now.

Where would you all go? ebay and Craigslist of course (not far from NYC…for good and bad), but any online sources? I don't want to buy new and pay the Apple tax.

I've had good luck with Apple's refurbs. There are some MacBooks around 15% off (http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/home/specialdeals/mac/macbook) and one teeny MBA (http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/home/specialdeals/mac/macbook_air/11).

Yes, I've been looking at those. Pricey, but they have the advantage of being covered by a warranty. I wonder if my daughter would mind the gold one? I'd hate it, but it's $200 less.

It's hard to believe all these 128gb systems out there. In this day and age, that is unacceptable.

I have had good luck with craigslist. if they have the serial number, you can check to see if it still qualifies for applecare.

Yes, I bought my son's 13" aluminum Macbook on CL for $250 a couple of years back, updated the drive, and he's been using it since.
I found a seller on eBay who resells Macs that have come off lease. Got a Macbook Air (2015 model), core 17, 8GB, 256Gb drive for $779. That's pretty damn good. For some other birthday I can give her a 512GB upgrade. Should take her through half of high school if not further.

Yay! (I am not a subscriber to MOST things... and as such, I have never had Cable/dish/pay TV, nor Amazon PRIME. Just to put this into perspective at my home... this is NICE. I choose NOT to buy from Amazon many times because of the shipping)

Amazon's free shipping threshold $35. (USofA)

I can't bring myself to spend $700 for that. Sorry. I have nostalgia, but I also have a family budget. :)

I have the 2820DW and it's been the best two-sided workhorse for my home office.

$59 for its successor is great, imo. NOTE: THE $59 PRICE IS WHEN YOU USE YOUR OWN, PERSONAL DAILY DISCOUNT CODE THAT GETS EMAILED TO YOU. IF YOU HAVENT YET, SIGN UP FOR FRYS DAILY EMAILS. SAVES ME TONS OF MONEY. Yes I am shouting. :) Bcuz--> $30 OFF this printer is GREAT DEAL.

wireless/airplay
