I see 13" in the Refurb Store now but wondering whether it's worth waiting for 11" to appear. Anyone know the last time these were available?

2015 is the last year Apple sold 11 inch MBAs. I doubt you will see any for sale at Apple's Refurb Store. Best bet is to find a brand new one for sale on eBay. Here's a new 2015 for sale $777 if you're interested...

the spec'd i7 11 inch MBAs are being sold for outrageous pricing. Just saw one being offered for $3,357... no thanks...

New 11” Airs are still available to the education market, so there’s a slim chance some might show up as refurbished, but I wouldn’t imagine Apple is selling a lot of them, new or otherwise, anymore.

Well then, keep an eye out for one. Good luck!

Hmm, I don’t see them on the Apple Education site - anything I’m missing?

I only see them at the site for my particular institution's page for ordering them for business. They're not on the personal education page.

The section is still there on the website, but I suppose with them no longer being sold new it takes a long time to accumulate enough to offer them. I did see a 13" unibody MacBook pro on there a few months previously, so machines of that era are still being sold.

Brand New Ones on QVC.com, that's if you want to pay their outrageous price of $999 for 4gb 128gb models
