Everyone is always asking when the best time to do something is. 

We’re not sure when the best time to post on Instagram is or when the best time to say “I love you” is (not after two dates, though), but we do know this: The best time to buy a new MacBook is all the time.

If you’ve been pushing the limits of your janky laptop for far too long, you should know that Amazon’s Deal of the Day is all about refurbished MacBooks: Save up to 30% (that’s $400 or more off) on the 2017 MacBook and MacBook Pro.

Before you worry about the “refurbished” part, don’t — Amazon certifies that refurbished products look and work like new (so…not like buying one on Letgo) so the only difference is the extra money you’re saving. However, there is a 90-day warranty in case yours isn’t up to par.

Here are the models on sale: 

Ah, hello Touch Bar. Once you’re done marveling in that beauty, let’s dive into the details: This is the  second-to-newest MacBook Pro model, from 2017, and operates with a speedy Intel Core i5 processor with up to 2.8 GHz, which is ace for video editing or heavy duty apps like Photoshop. Your content will be displayed on a 3.3-inch 2560 x 1600 display, with a mini retina display coming in the form of that Touch Bar, where you can browse the web, talk to Siri, send iMessages, and activate Touch ID. Along with four thunderbolt ports, three USB-C ports, there’s also a headphone jack — which won’t be in MacBooks much longer, so take advantage while you can.

Regularly $1,999.99, you can save $450 and grab it for $1,549.99. 

If you need extra SSD, the same model with 512 GB is also $450 off and on sale for $1,749.99.

Fun fact: There is a MacBook smaller and lighter than the MacBook Air. The classic MacBook is the ultimate grab-and-go companion, with a 12-inch screen and weighing just over three pounds. In that compact (and adorable) package, you’re still getting a full-size backlit keyboard, a 2304 x 1440 retina display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core M3 Processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.0GHz, plus all-day battery life that heftier MacBooks can’t even touch.

Regularly $1,399.99, you can save $400 and grab it for $999.99
