Let's take a look at the Mac lineup and see what the barest-bones, cheapest devices we can score might be. You're looking to take a plunge on a Mac and leave Windows behind? Here's how you can make the transition for a little less than buying the newest models.
Refurbished Mac mini with OS X Server 2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
Granted, it's the server model and not the even-more-stripped-down version, but Apple's sold a lot of the lower-end refurbs off. Still, at $759, this is one heck of a Mac for the price.
Refurbished 11.6-inch MacBook Air 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
Less than a hundred bucks more than the mini above is this bare bones MacBook Air for $849. It's one year old, but that saves you $150.
Refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Air 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
Under a thousand bucks by just one dollar, this model is $200 off the new price and it ups the size of the smaller base model above.
Refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.5GHz Dual-core Intel i5
Same size as the biggest Air is the smallest MacBook Pro. $20 more takes you up to $1,019 and grabs you a faster processor and more storage, and a pretty sweet machine to boot.
Refurbished 15.4-inch MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel i7
Nearly two more inches of screen real estate and a jump to the Quad-core i7 tacks $470 onto your ticket, taking this baby up to $1,489, but that's still $310 off the new sticker.
Refurbished 17-inch MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Quad-core Intel i7
Only one 17-inch model left in the refurb lots, and this behemoth will run you $1,899, but that's a whopping $600 off the regular price. Wow.
Refurbished iMac 21.5-inch 2.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
The size keeps getting bigger, but not necessarily the prices. We drop way back down to under $1,000 with this $979 iMac.
Refurbished 27-inch iMac 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i5
Go big or go home, people say, and this $1,529 model sports the ginormous 27" screen and a KILLER 2.9GHz Quad-core, so yeah, it's worth it.
