    I am at Best Buy and was wondering if the current generation 12 inch MacBook m3, 256, 8 GB is a good deal at $790 for an open box. I was playing around with it and it’s in great condition. Not thrilled on the gold, however, I can get over that if price is good. Thoughts? I am not a power user at all.

    That it's an incredible price. RRP is £1250 here in the UK and the M3 is a very very capable Mac!
    I love my 12" MacBook in fact, it's my favourite design Mac of all time along with the G4 Cube!

    Scarf it up. Like the previous post stated, it's a great deal if the machine is in good condition and everything appears to be working like it should. Also buy Apple Care if you can afford it.

    Great price for a great 2017 MacBook Core m3.

    Also, gold is best!

    My Macbook Pro was exposed on a store. Battery was around 18 cycles. Got a good deal on it, but before warranty expiring, I bought Apple Care. Had a couple of screens and top cover replaced. Apple Care is very recommended on this kind of purchase.

    Congrats on the purchase! I picked up the same configuration in space grey for 799 and have been carrying this thing around daily. My phone essentially stays in my pocket while I write, look up things on the web, and iMessage all on one screen. For work and for media consumption, this is a fantastic device.
