You can save big money buying used technology.
Experimac in west Houston has refurbished laptops for cheap with a warranty. This includes Apple products.
A refurbished 13-inch Macbook is on sale for just $499.
"If you go to try to shop one new, the starting price is $1000, so basically this is half. So this is basically more resources and more power than the ones you are buying new today," said David Scarbrough from Experimac.
The Macbook includes a one year warranty.
