For many people, a computer is like an extension of the family. From helping us connect with those we love to making school projects – computers have become integral parts of our lives.
At Swappa, we know how big of a deal it is to buy a computer and how expensive it can be to keep all your family members up to date with the latest tech. That’s why the Swappa marketplace now includes used MacBooks – to help our users save money while staying current with top-notch products.
If you’re unfamiliar with Swappa, we are a safe user-to-user marketplace for buying and selling newish tech. We call it newish because the gently used products sold on Swappa must be fully-functional and are held to a higher standard than other marketplaces. Unlike Craigslist and eBay, every listing for sale on Swappa is manually reviewed by our group of tech experts to ensure you receive your item in the condition you expect.
If you’re in the market for a MacBook, here’s why you should find your next purchase on Swappa.
Save Money with Better Prices
Simply put, the main reason to buy a used MacBook is to save money. With Swappa, you’re able to reap the benefits of Apple’s forward-thinking design with a much lower price tag by buying a newish MacBook directly from another user. Saving money for the win!
When you buy a used MacBook through Swappa, you’ll get the same quality product at a better price. Notebooks like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro have a reputation for quality and performance that holds their shelf life, which is why thousands of people choose to buy on Swappa every month. These smart consumers pay far less than retail for Apple products.

All Swappa purchases are completed through PayPal, giving you and your family extensive buyer protections while keeping checkout simple. PayPal keeps your financial information safe and ensures you get what you pay for, or a refund.
Plus, through Swappa, you can use PayPal Credit to purchase your devices. PayPal Credit is a revolving line of credit that can provide interest-free purchases when paid back within 6 months. Using PayPal Credit to buy a used laptop is the secret to getting a MacBook for cheap because you’ll save hundreds of dollars on the cost of the device and will make smaller payments that are convenient, easy, and predictable.
Protect the Environment
Buying a used laptop is cheaper, and is also better for the environment. According to Apple, more than 80% of the carbon emissions of an electronics occur during the manufacturing process. So when you buy used, you are helping reduce carbon emissions, while extending the life of that product and preventing toxic waste from ending up in the landfill. Feel good about helping to protect the environment when you buy used tech.
Stay Up to Date on All the Latest Tech
In addition to MacBooks, the Swappa marketplace includes phones, tablets, home tech products, and gaming devices. Keep your family stocked with the latest tech at a better price.
