Deals Spotlight: 12-Inch MacBook Hits All-Time-Low at $800 ($500 Off)

In a new flash sale at B&H Photo, you can get the 12-inch MacBook for just $799.00, $500 off from the original price of $1,299.00. This is the configuration from mid 2017 with 8GB onboard RAM and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage, available in Gold and Rose Gold during today's sale.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with B&H Photo. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

The 12-inch MacBook is Apple's low-cost notebook, featuring a 12-inch Retina display, 10-12 hour battery life, Force Touch trackpad, and a butterfly keyboard, all encased in a 0.5-inch thin enclosure.

In terms of sales, we've been tracking an ongoing discount for the 512GB version of the same MacBook at multiple retailers, but B&H Photo's flash sale today is the best price currently available online for the 256GB model. It's also the best we've ever seen among the major retailers.

That should have been the price from the start.

But we all know Apple would rather rip you off to get to a trillion dollar valuation than price their products respectably.

The point of businesses is to be profitable.


Did I say Apple needs to be a charity?

My fiancée got this rev when they were released and still loves it. Extremely light weight and portable (fits into a handbag). Can run Photoshop and Illustrator just fine... not limited to iOS. She has an iMac for more intensive projects. This is a great price!

Stupid stinky CAD. That's 1070CAD, 15% tax, so 1230.50 in total. Still feels like way too much to me for Core M and one USB C port.

Keep in mind the issues with the butterfly keyboard, especially this 2nd gen keyboard.

Also, B&H’s return policy states that opened computers are not returnable:

[doublepost=1551899323][/doublepost]Would never consider buying this MacBook too much at risk with that keyboard and plus B&H their return policy is terrible

120GB HD 4200 RPM
$1,799


2017 MacBook
1.2GHz Core m3

Disgusting how more expensive Apple products have become at terrible specs.


Clock for clock most Intel processors from this half of the decade *destroy* a Core 2 Duo. Bad comparison.

Love my macbook. Have the m5 512 gb got for $999 during best buy sale a few years ago. Still running strong. Don't use for super heavy stuff but runs extra display and normal stuff just fine. Love the size

Any price where you have to use a NuKeyboard that will likely fail within a year is not worth it.
