Any pixel anomalies are within manufacturer guidelines for a new system. Images shown are examples from actual units but exact unit condition will vary.

Other than not coming in the original box, you'd never know it wasn't new. Totally happy. My next Mac PC/Laptop will be purchased from you guys.

Rating: 5/5 Best purchase ever August 22, 2016 This is the best computer purchase I made. I bought it 2 months ago and it works just perfectly The product was shipped and received in Europe in less than 5 days. I spent 3 times less than a full price 2016 mac book air a friend bought, and it works way faster. Even if the computer had a few bumps on the outside, it is certainly brand new in the inside, and the SSD upgrade makes it a better computer than its latest counterparts. On the customer service side, my emails were answered within hours, despite the timezone difference. Highly recommended!

Charged it with included charger, booted it, everything works fine. Updated to OS 10.11 El Capitan with no problems. Very satisfied. I've always had good products and great service from MacSales.com

OWC's customer service was solid. They bumped me up to faster shipping because of a delay and were extremely patient with my numerous enquiries.

This was purchased as a backup computer for video and graphics production. I used it on a live music awards show back in November and It has been more than up to the task.

Rating: 5/5 Surprised and Impressed December 28, 2015 I have been wanting a MacBook Air (MBA) for years, I wanted the portability and the power these machines offer. It became clear that Apple was not going to offer a Retina display on the MBA, so I changed my expectations.

This is a 3+ year old MacBook Air that OWC listed in "Fair" condition. Most of the other used MacBook Airs had only 4GB, I chose this model for the 8GB of RAM (RAM can't be updated on a MacBook Air).

Wow, what a surprise. If this is what "Fair" looks like, I don't need "Good". This machine is in extremely good condition for a 3 year old machine.

Cons: - Key shine (understandable for any used Apple product with dark chiclet-style keys) - There are scratches on the bottom of the case. - The battery life is just over 50% of new.

Pros: - This machine has a replaceable battery (I'll be doing that sometime soon) - All other fit and finish are like new. No dents, no significant blemishes.

I had only briefly considered buying a used computer in the past, but found prices to be either too high or the condition descriptions to be too nebulous or hard to predict. When I saw the photos OWC posted as part of the description, I thought perhaps they were wrong or not indicative. So I took the leap.

I am thrilled with quality of this laptop. True, it is not the newest or fastest MacBook Air, nor is it close to the speed of machines I considered, but it is an i5 with 8GB of RAM and a solid state disk. This machine runs El Capitan OS 10.11 easily. All that I need this computer for lives in the Mac/Apple universe, so this machine will be great. Great for a trip to the coffee shop or around the World. This will be my new companion!
