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.
One thing we can definitely say about this week's deals is that Mac minis are back. Refurb models of our favorite little guys were practically sold out around the end of 2013, but they're definitely back now. And if you're looking for great deals on MacBooks instead, you've come to the right place. Plus, pimp out your iOS gear in style with the great deals this week on headphones and cases and keyboards, oh my!
Featuring a unique around-the-neck fit, padded ear cushions, and sophisticated design, the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband headset is great for all your listening needs. MacLife is giving away three—that’s right, three—of these headsets in our latest promotion. Details after the jump!
Mac minis are back in the game after a hiatus around these parts. These little hockey puck-sized powerhouses were some of the first signs of Apple's commitment to shrinkage — but in a good way. And now we see that the cold weather has also gotten the prices of gear down to smaller sizes. So what are you waiting for?
Well, we hope you all were pleased with yourselves and your Black Friday madnesses. Since the great deals were everywhere last week, this week's foray into refurbs will find a few different corners, but some old faves too. Plus the usual assortment of gear for your gear at a price that's not dear.
When next we meet to discuss the deals of the week, we’ll be in the thick of Thanksgiving and the Black Friday deals will be all around us. The question is, is it worth going into the stores that early on the chance of scoring a Mac deal or could you just go the refurb route and save bigger bucks? We’ll go with the latter.
Apple is widely starting to be known primarily for its portable products (and, yes, we’re including laptops in that category), but you also have to give it recognition for its solid, sexy desk-bound models as well. There are some pretty sweet deals on these home computers this week, and we’ll show you where to find them.
Well, the MacBook Air didn't get much love during Apple’s recent events, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of deals to go around to get you the lightest, best laptop around. Maybe people aren’t throwing over their Airs for the newest, freshest model like they are for iPads, but that doesn’t mean you’re not ready to rock these bargains.
Whenever I’m on an airplane, as soon as passengers are allowed to use electronics, at least a half-dozen pairs of Bose’s Quiet Comfort headphones pop out of carry-on bags. Despite increased competition, Bose’s noise-canceling headphones are pretty much the standard for air travel.
So apparently there's yet another Apple event next week and most people suspect it's iPad-related, with the possibility of a few surprises thrown in. We wondered ourselves, based on this week's refurb pricing, if there might not be an Apple TV update thrown into the mix (it's the lowest we've seen the price in memory). Meanwhile, we've got some big screen laptop action and more in this week's slice-a-rama.
