We see deals on 12" Apple MacBooks on Amazon and Woot from time to time, but they’re always for refurbs, and always older models. Today though, Woot’s taking $300 off brand new laptops from the current generation (released in the middle of 2017).

Your only choice here is the color - each one includes a Core i5 processor, spacious 512GB SSD, and 8 GB of RAM. As configured, that would set you back $1,600 from Apple. It’s not a powerhouse, but as someone who has one of these from work, I can tell you that it’s terrific for travel. It’s light, you can charge it with a USB-C battery pack, and it fully opens on an economy tray table.

The only catch is that while these are brand new laptops, they carry a 90 day Woot warranty, rather than a one-year Apple warranty. They were originally intended to be warranty replacements for Apple, and that is why Woot can offer them as a discount.
