I am looking for a small computer for my 11 year old grandson.

    Hi Sam,

    That's very thoughtful of you! As a young student your grandson probably does not need a very powerful computer. I would recommend the 11-inch MacBook Air.

    Remember that you can often get a discount through the refurb store. On the main Apple Store page, on the left hand side there is a section called "Special Deals", click on "Refurbished Mac". Refurbished Macs come and go, so you will see a different collection on sale every now and then. You may find a cheaper Mac than you would through the regular store.

    Good luck!
