MacConnection is blowing out the previous generation entry-level 2011 11-inch MacBook Air for just $749

Regular Fairer Platform readers know we are big fans of Apple Certified Factory Refurbished Macs. However, from time to time, especially during and just after a product transition, third-party resellers have even better deals on previous-generation yet new-in-box Macs. That said, MacConnection is blowing out the previous generation entry-level 2011 11-inch MacBook Air for just $749.

How good is this deal? For your reference, check out the 2011 refurbished 11-inch MBA with 1.6GHz i5 for the very same price and the perhaps more tempting 2012 11-inch MBA with 1.7GHz for $100 more. And, if you really must have the latest version new and untouched, Amazon has the 2012 entry-level 11-inch MacBook Air with two Thunderbolt ports and USB 3 for $949.
