We expected a glut of MacBook Airs to hit the refurb market once Apple announced a refresh of the super light laptop. There's a range of Airs out there for the discerning person in the laptop market who isn't necessarily concerned about the latest and the greatest and they're all incredibly reasonably priced. That, and more, in this week's price slash-o-rama.
Get some Air! MacBook Air, that is. This week we've got a great selection of Apple's lighter than light laptop collection at great refurb prices, plus we've got all kinds of cases and a few speaker treats that are sure to delight.
iPhone 5 cases were a bit on the scarce side right at launch, but now they're multiplying faster than tribbles. We're going to review every case we get our hands on, and we'll keep this gallery updated as we do. From simple silicon skins to rugged drop-proof tanks to blinged-out jewel-encrusted cases, we've got 'em all.
Sena's Magia Wallet feels and smells like fine Italian leather, because it is. The simple magnetic closure flips open to reveal your phone, plus room for three cards and a few bills. The style echoes classic ladies' pocketbooks, and the Magia wouldn't look out of place during a night out on the town.
Newer Technology's NuGuard KX has been drop-tested according to military specifications. There's even a video on the company's website of a NuGuard-clad iPhone being dropped by some sadistic-looking robot thing, and emerging unscathed. The one-piece case snaps on, and is made of "hyper-advanced X-Orbing gel."
For minimalists, iPhone cases are something of a dilemma. The iPhone is beautiful and sleek...but the majority of case options cover up Apple's storied design with something else entirely. On the other hand, Moshi's iGlaze is the least amount of case you can get and still call it a case.
iLuv's Pulse features a two-piece design that allows you to mix and match parts to create different color combinations. The base layer is a solid-color cover that covers the back and edges of your phone. It's unremarkable on its own, but the bright outer layer snaps on top, offering bold stripes in a contrasting color. The second layer also adds three-dimensional texture that helps the phone stay in your hand and off the pavement.
Urban warriors will appreciate this simple one-piece snap-on case with bright illustrations from Fu-design, featuring London, New York, Paris, and Taipei. There's no screen protector, but the back and edges of your iPhone will be guarded by three different layers. Two plastic layers are backed with a durable aluminum alloy. Echo Creative assures us that the metal helps with heat dissipation, but...is iPhone overheating really a problem that needs solving?
It's the end of the first month, so we're about 1/12 the way through with the year. Woohoo us! By now you should have all your tax documents together, so what are you waiting for--start planning your tax refund expenditures with some great gear like the stuff we have one sale this week.
