As noted by MacNN, Apple has added the revamped MacBook Air to the section of its online store devoted to refurbished products, offering significant savings for those willing to go the slightly-used-but-thoroughly-tested route.

Prices start at $849 for the entry-level 11.6-inch model, a savings of $150 off of the price of a brand-new machine. Bumping up from 64 GB of storage to 128 GB yields a price of $1019, discounted from $1199. And finally among the 11.6-inch models, the 1.6 GHz model with 4 GB of RAM goes for $1189 refurbished, compared to $1399 when purchased new.

For the 13.3-inch models, the entry-level model comes in at $1099 compared to the brand-new price of $1299. Upgrading from 128 GB of storage to 256 GB bumps the price to $1349, a savings of $250 off of the $1599 regular price. Maxing out the 13.3-inch model to 2.13 GHz and 4 GB of RAM brings the price to $1529 refurbished, down from $1799 new.
