Best Macbooks for under the $1k can often be found in online auction sites and bargain sites, but it’s not uncommon to find a $1K MacBook Pro at the hardware store or a used laptop store.
These laptops often don’t come with a hard drive or optical drive, so you’ll need to buy a laptop that has them.
While some of these laptops are also equipped with a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 Type-C port, you’ll likely want to use the laptop with the USB Type-A port if you want to run apps on it.
You can also pick up an external keyboard, mouse, or trackpad for under that price tag.
The laptop that’s best for you will depend on the specs of the computer, but some of the laptops that are best for the average person include the Dell XPS 13, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 910, the Dell Inspiron 17 7000, the Acer Iconia 15, the Toshiba Satellite S500, and the Tosko T60-VX.
The laptops listed below have a number of specs, and we’ve highlighted some of them below to give you a sense of what they’re good for.
