Well, here's some not-so-good news: the recently announced, incredibly thin iMac line may not be available until 2013. According to one source, the redesigned computers are facing manufacturing challenges that threaten the previously stated November and December 2012 launch windows.
Happy Movember, mustache lovers. While we can't promise you that any of this week's hot hot deals are facial hair related, we can promise that this is a great time to be buying refurbs -- but then when isn't it a good time? And without any further ado, the deals.
So it was a big announcement week with not only the long rumored iPad mini, but surprises like the newly redesigned iMacs, Retina Display additions to the MacBook line up, and the fourth generation iPad. One thing Apple never does is disappoint. So a few other stories happened this week too, so why don't we take a look?
Well, we don't know about you guys but we really dug what we saw this week at what everyone was calling the iPad mini event which turned out to be darn near a whole product line refresh. New iMacs! New Mac minis! New MacBooks and MacBook Airs! And then the kicker surprise of the whole day, the fourth generation iPad months and months early. Wow. So what do we have to top that? Well…we've got bargains….
Today was an exciting day for Apple enthusiasts, as the company revealed the iPad mini, a new Mac mini, and an awfully gorgeous new iMac line-up. But as is so often the case with technology, innovations in overall size can mean the loss of features. Apparently, the 21.5-inch iMac doesn't contain easily switchable RAM slots.
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing "the most beautiful Mac" Apple has ever made! At the San Jose media event, the folks in Cupertino have announced the company's latest iMac, which is impossibly thin and "stunning from every side."
If you're reading this site, or if you're just a tech enthusiast, you're well aware of one thing: Apple is terrible at keeping a secret. Honestly, the company keeps things under wraps with all the tact of a junior-high schooler. But according to some Apple employees, the supply chain holds every bit of the blame.
Now that Apple has sent out its official invites for an October 23 event, we're fairly confident the iPad Mini is on its way. But Cupertino isn't likely to leave the stage without a few other announcements, and according to sources, new iMac units are on the menu.
We love showing off all the great refurbed Macs out there because we think maybe people don't realize the incredible bargains on machines that are in tip-top form. A big knock in consumer circles is that Apple products are expensive, but they're killer products and here we've got some of them at killer prices. So if brand-new looks like it's several months more of ramen dinners away, look on the discount side of things. You won't be disappointed.
We're starting to see iPhone 5 accessories hit the market and the flood has only just begun. We've got a few of them highlighted for your enjoyment this week, plus some refurbs and a few other goodies. So take a stroll on the deal side of the street and get your wallets ready.
