They're baaaack! That's right, everyone's favorite super-tiny desktop is back in the Apple-certified refurb game and we've got the models to prove it. Meanwhile, if you've got an iPad, you need a case and luckily we've got a few options in that department. And we haven't left the music lovers out in the cold either, so let's take a look inside.
Every so often our Weekly Deals focus on great Macs that don't crack the $1K threshold. While a few of the more powerful machines just tiptoe over that line this week, we've still got plenty of great machines that you can nab at impressive discounts. Plus, we've got an assortment of cases in our biggest, cheapest deal of the week, in colors to satisfy most every taste. So let's have a look, shall we?
So maybe you heard the rumor that the latest OS X beta suggests new iMacs are possible soon and you'd like to put off that purchase as long as possible. Good for you, but if the situation is desperate and you've got to get a new machine, consider the refurb market. Nearly new, Apple certified, and savings galore. Go have a look.
This week marks the return of the refurb Mac mini and based on how often those are out of stock, the little desktop that could is not only a marvel of packing lots of power into a wee little package, it's also a hot ticket item. So grab 'em while they're here, because they won't last.
With reports that Retina Display is in the mix for the latest round of MacBook Airs, maybe that's what you're saving up for, or maybe that is just gonna prove too pricey or you need a machine yesterday. Well, you're in luck, because we've got some sweet deals on yesterday's models and this is just the place to save some dough.
A lot of people think "old" when they read "refurb" or "used" so we've made sure that all of this week's refurb models of Macs are as fresh as can be. Not one model predates last year and some of them are just barely a year old and some even less than that. So let's have a look at these gently used deals, buffed to a high gloss shine by Apple. And if that doesn't tempt you, we even have some great deals on brand new Macs and, as always, a round up of the hot discount gear ready and waiting for you.
We start small today and build bit by bit to the biggest Macs around, so begin with us at the tiniest of refurbs and grow. And this week is heavy on the devices, since there are so many great deals out there. There's a little something for everyone in this week's refurb round up, and with all the money you save on these slashed prices, don't forget to check out our gear deals too.
One of the knocks we hear against Apple products pretty often is that they're expensive. Sure, they aren't as inexpensive as $200 netbooks, but they're also not hastily designed, shoddily manufactured garbage you throw away in 2 years either. But there are ways to crack that price issue a little, and with this week's refurbs, we've got the week's lowest price, base models of all the flagship Macs just ripe for your wallets. iOS products tend to land a lot closer to the same market prices out there, but if you want some cheap gear for them, you've come to the right place.
The existence of the Mac mini on the refurb rolls is like a cycle. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. Well, this week, fans of the little desktop that could, you're in luck. We've got a few highlighted here and Apple has plenty more. Plus, a little something for everyone in the Apple computer line, and all of it hitting that sweet spot of under or just a bit above $1,000. And that's not even getting into our iOS gear bonanza. So let's dig in.
This week, we're gonna save you some money. Sure, we save you money with our weekly deals every single Thursday, but today, we're looking at big money. We're talking savings of over $300 on refurb Macs and over $700 on new, out-of-the-box Macs. We're talking a huge chunk of cash staying right where you want it — in your pocket — while you pick up a great Apple computer. And then, if you have an iOS device, you can spend some of your savings on a little something for your them, too.
