Happy Earth Day! Apple is celebrating this year's event by now accepting any of the company's older products for recycling at its retail stores, as well as attacking rivals like Samsung with green-focused advertising touting "There are some ideas we want every company to copy." The campaign also extends to Apple's website, which now features a home page squarely focused on the environment, complete with green leaf accents added to the online store.
It's April Fool's Day again, and that means internet users will be subjected to 24 hours of pranks, fake product announcements and other generally annoying (but ultimately harmless) mayhem. We like to laugh and have fun just like the next guy, but have decided to sit out the tomfoolery this year and present you a fool-free news recap... well, except maybe for the story about Ryan Seacrest's company, anyway...
A lot of people think "old" when they read "refurb" or "used" so we've made sure that all of this week's refurb models of Macs are as fresh as can be. Not one model predates last year and some of them are just barely a year old and some even less than that. So let's have a look at these gently used deals, buffed to a high gloss shine by Apple. And if that doesn't tempt you, we even have some great deals on brand new Macs and, as always, a round up of the hot discount gear ready and waiting for you.
We start small today and build bit by bit to the biggest Macs around, so begin with us at the tiniest of refurbs and grow. And this week is heavy on the devices, since there are so many great deals out there. There's a little something for everyone in this week's refurb round up, and with all the money you save on these slashed prices, don't forget to check out our gear deals too.
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.
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.
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.
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.
