In a 2019 survey of over 2200 university students, 71 percent of the participants reported a preference for Apple Mac laptops over PCs—but of that number, only 40 percent actually owned a Mac product. The biggest roadblock standing in their way of making the switch? The price. If those lofty price tags have you second-guessing a purchase, check out these Apple devices and accessories that are either certified refurbished or on sale.

1. Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Certified Refurbished); $1000 (49 percent off)

Apple

The robust quad-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage space in this MacBook Pro help avoid any lag while you work on documents, surf the web, and play HD movies on the 15.4-inch retina display. And with the ability to run for up to nine hours on a single charge, your work (or play) won't be interrupted by a constant need to find an outlet.

2. Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Refurbished); $580 (3 percent off)

Apple

Like the model above, you'll be able to access your work and apps on this MacBook Air, but since the screen size and RAM are toned down, it's far more affordable than the Pro. Still, you'll get access to 128GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i5 processor and Intel HD Graphics 6000 driver for an exceptional visual experience.

Looking to Downsize? You Can Buy a 5-Room DIY Cabin on Amazon for Less Than $33,000

Five rooms of one's own.
Five rooms of one's own.
Allwood/Amazon

If you’ve already mastered DIY houses for birds and dogs, maybe it’s time you built one for yourself.

As Simplemost reports, there are a number of house kits that you can order on Amazon, and the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit is one of the quaintest—and, at $32,990, most affordable—options. The 540-square-foot structure has enough space for a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a sitting room—and there’s an additional 218-square-foot loft with the potential to be the coziest reading nook of all time.

You can opt for three larger rooms if you're willing to skip the kitchen and bathroom.Allwood/Amazon

The construction process might not be a great idea for someone who’s never picked up a hammer, but you don’t need an architectural degree to tackle it. Step-by-step instructions and all materials are included, so it’s a little like a high-level IKEA project. According to the Amazon listing, it takes two adults about a week to complete. Since the Nordic wood walls are reinforced with steel rods, the house can withstand winds up to 120 mph, and you can pay an extra $1000 to upgrade from double-glass windows and doors to triple-glass for added fortification.

Sadly, the cool ceiling lamp is not included.Allwood/Amazon

Though everything you need for the shell of the house comes in the kit, you will need to purchase whatever goes inside it: toilet, shower, sink, stove, insulation, and all other furnishings. You can also customize the blueprint to fit your own plans for the space; maybe, for example, you’re going to use the house as a small event venue, and you’d rather have two or three large, airy rooms and no kitchen or bedroom.
