If you buy a 12-inch MacBook right now on Apple’s website, it’s going to cost you $1,299 and it’s worth the price. To get macOS and that gorgeous Retina display on one of Apple’s thinnest laptops ever is obviously going to cost a pretty penny. But why on Earth would you pay that much to Apple when you can get the same machine on Amazon today for so much less!? For one day only on Friday, Amazon is selling the Apple MacBook Laptop with a 12-inch Retina display, an Intel Cor M3 processor, a 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM for just $799.99. You can get it at that price in either gold or rose gold, and it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen on this awesome notebook computer.
