If you’re looking for an amazing gift for the holidays, then we found a great one for you. Amazon has the mid-2017 Apple MacBook Pro on sale for $1,549.99. That’s $450 off its list price and a really great deal.

This laptop is a certified refurbished model, but don’t let that scare you. This machine is still a beast for getting work done and staying productive all day. Buying refurbished means it’s basically as good as new, and it’ll give you a cheaper price point that makes this a much more manageable gift item — especially if buying for your kids.

Normally priced at $1,999.99, the MacBook Pro features a wide 15.4-inch backlit LED Retina Display at a 2880×1800 resolution for crisp and clear image reproduction, along with a quad-core Intel Core i7-7700HQ chip, 16GB of memory, and 256GB of SSD storage for blazing fast speeds and computer processing. The highlights of the new Apple MacBook Pro are its impressive Force Touch Trackpad for multi-touch productivity and Touch Bar for customizable buttons and toggles for your unique workflow.

This MacBook Pro also features Mac OS Sierra, but upgradable to the latest Mojave — if you want the same bells and whistles as Apple’s current model, such as an all-new finder with Dark Mode settings, Dynamic Desktop that changes the display brightness automatically throughout the day, and even quicker processing to handle new and current apps like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

Make no mistake about it, even though this laptop is little more than a year old, it still features the usability, power, and speed that the Apple MacBook Pro is known for, but at a fraction of the price.

Need a second opinion? Amazon customer James Daniels writes:

“I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. I was a little worried regarding the purchase of a refurbished item, but the computer looks new. There are no cosmetic damages that I can see, and as of this posting there are no operating issues. I only wish that I had purchased the space gray, but I’m happy as of now. I compared the cost of this item to other used and I feel that I got a good deal. Thanks Amazon.”

In addition, Amazon also has the newest version of the Apple MacBook 12-inch on sale for $1,198.00. This is $501 off its list price of $1,699.00. It’s something to consider if your workflow isn’t as intensive or requires that much horsepower. Either way, you really can’t go wrong with these models, especially at this price point.
