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.
Last week, we hooked you up with some killer refurb deals in the MacBook Pro line, as the new MacBook models introduced at Apple’s new iPad event might kick those deals into high gear. Now as we sit on the cusp of the release of the latest iPad models, here’s an armload of tablets on the cheap, just for you. These deals are so good, it’s terrifying.
With MacBook Pros getting a refresh, now’s a good chance to get some sweet deals on refurb models, as Apple will be pricing that stock to MOVE. So if you’re in the market for the best full-powered laptop out there, you’ve come to the right place. What about iPad and iPad mini accessories going on sale, you ask? Well, just step inside, friends, step inside.
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.
We're back on the Mac tip with our refurb selections this week and this go-around it's the newest of the new. Nothing here older than one year and some of it even fresher than that. So if you're in the market for a mini or a case for your iPad or something really darn cheap, you've come to the right place.
With the iPad rumored for a refresh this month, there are plenty of refurb models of the current, soon-to-be-previous-generation models out there on the refresh end of things. Now, if you were the kind of person who might be interested in something like that, this would be a good place to save some money.
With the release of the two latest iPhone models, case makers have to be happy that not only can they continue to sell out their existing stock for another year, but they have something new to slightly tweak current designs to work with. And if you have an older-model 30-pin iPhone, accessory makers are starting to clear out their stock of merchandise, which is good news for you if you like sales. Plus, we still have a healthy selection of the best refurbs on the block, so dive right in.
In honor of next week's big iPhone 5S reveal (which leaks have pretty much guaranteed with be fairly anticlimactic unless Tim's got another Mac Pro style surprise under wraps), this week's deals are all about the iOS. We've got iPod touches, iPads, and more inside. We'll keep it short this week, as we know if you're reading this blog, you're holding your breath and your wallet as you wait to see what next Tuesday will bring.
Get your fill of hot ticket items this week as we've got refurb deals that are pretty amazing and we've got cases and we've got just the ticket if your Labor Day weekend involves any kind of amusement park water rides. And if you need some tunes for your party, yeah, we gotcha covered.
We've got a bevy of refurb Macs for you back-to-schoolers who want a great laptop at a great price, but we've also got a handful or three of accessories to protect the rest of your Apple gear. Or to turn a decent attempt at drawing on your iPad into an awesome one. That and more after the jump.
