2017 MacBook Air: was $999 now $699 @ Best Buy
The Macbook Air (2017) is a powerful, pretty laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor, an integrated Intel HD Graphics 6000 card, 8 GB RAM and a 128 GB SSD. It also has a comfortable keyboard and plenty of ports.

Yes, the Macbook Air is a few years old, but it's a fan-favorite laptop, thanks partially to its excellent keyboard. Newer Macbook Airs have been plagued with keyboard issues. In many cases, the spacebar starts to malfunction; in worst-case scenarios, the entire keyboard stops working. The Macbook Air that's currently on sale, in contrast, has a rock-solid typing apparatus.

Another memorable feature of the 2017 MacBook Air is its magnetic charging cord. The magnetic cable snaps into place and prevents your laptop from flying off your desk in the event that someone steps or tugs on the charging cord. 

This MacBook Air also benefits from having full-size USB ports and an SD Card slot, amenities you won't find on newer MacBooks.

If you're an Apple fan — or have been wanting to become one — this is about as cheap as Apple laptops get.
