Well, it looks like you guys snatched up all the Mac minis that were on offer last week, as it appears refurbia is fresh out at the Apple Store. Well, surely there's still plenty of good deals out there on Apple products small (and big). Let's go find out.
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.
Your desktop has gotten rather long in the tooth. Yes, yes, it has. Sure, you've thought about upgrading to one of the sweet newer iMacs, but the price. Well, you can keep on limping along with slow processor speeds, or you can grab one of the many great and great-priced refurbs we've got going on this week. And if you need some cut-price gear, you've come to the right place.
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!
The deals this week are all the newest refurbs we could find. Nothing older than a one year old, if that. We're going for so new a refurb there's still that fresh box smell. Elsewhere, we've got the cases and the power you need to keep on going and going and going.
Happy New Year! Welcome to the first of this year's fantastic Deals columns. We've got some refurb hits for you, plus some great pricing on fresh-out-of-the-box new Macs.

Sure, the new Mac Pros are finally dropping but you'll have to wait a bit before those end up on the refurb list. But rest assured we'll let you know when they do. Meanwhile, here's some great deals on things that ARE available for your last minute shopping binges.
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?
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.
