As everyone who reads these columns more than once knows that we like to focus on refurbs that aren't too old. Picking a Mac that's 2 years old gets you a decent enough machine, but everyone prefers brand-spanking new. This week, we're excited because there are some MacBook Airs in here from THIS YEAR. That's pretty doggone new, and all our others are less than 1 year old, so these are some pretty sweet refurbs in action.
Every so often our Weekly Deals focus on great Macs that don't crack the $1K threshold. While a few of the more powerful machines just tiptoe over that line this week, we've still got plenty of great machines that you can nab at impressive discounts. Plus, we've got an assortment of cases in our biggest, cheapest deal of the week, in colors to satisfy most every taste. So let's have a look, shall we?
One of the knocks we hear against Apple products pretty often is that they're expensive. Sure, they aren't as inexpensive as $200 netbooks, but they're also not hastily designed, shoddily manufactured garbage you throw away in 2 years either. But there are ways to crack that price issue a little, and with this week's refurbs, we've got the week's lowest price, base models of all the flagship Macs just ripe for your wallets. iOS products tend to land a lot closer to the same market prices out there, but if you want some cheap gear for them, you've come to the right place.
We've got deals all over the place today. Whether you want refurb cost savings or that fresh out of the box new smell, our Mac deals have got you covered. And we've hooked you up with deals that supercharge your older Apple TV and keep your wallet from wandering too far away. So let's dive right in, right now, and get a look at these deals.
We've got big deals to go with big computers today. Seriously, have you seen these 27" monitors and iMacs? They're just gorgeous and it turns out there's a few refurbs out there less than a year old. So if you've been in the market for an iMac, now's your chance.
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.
I love writing on my iPad (I’m doing it right now), but anything longer than a two-sentence email reply takes too long to tap out on the software keyboard. I’ve been a slave to my Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Case, but the Brydge aims to be more Apple-like. It’s made of aluminum to match the iPad’s construction, and the strong, sturdy hinge can hold the iPad at nearly any viewing angle — it opens to almost 180 degrees.
Deals you will fall in love with, that's what we promise you every week. Who says we have to wait until some half naked cherub shoots us full of arrows? We got the Apple love, and we got it bad. Now here's Dr. Deals to soothe what ails ya with some low cut prices.
