So Black Friday and Cyber Monday came and went, but don't worry — there are still plenty more deals out there, and you won't even have to face the the crowds and clamor of one of the year's busiest shopping days! One thing you can count on is that our weekly deals happen year round and you can always find a great one on any given Thursday, right here. So let's see what this week has to offer.
This week, all our refurb Mac deals are from this year. With the approaching Black Friday deals coming up, there will be some pretty sweet pricing coming down the pike on Cupertino's line of products, so rather than offer you the lowest price models from 2012, it's the newest refurbs out there. So start your holiday shopping earlier than the mobs and hook up with some deals right now.
They went quickly as usual, the refurb Mac minis. Gone after appearing briefly last week, despite Apple's refresh of the pint-sized desktop. So this week, in their honor, we'll feature other small devices, meaning if you're looking to save money on some iOS products and don't need the very latest model Air, this is the place to save some serious cash and pick up some great products.
Well, since we're a week away from a new Apple event, I think we can all speculate pretty easily that new iPads are in the mix very soon. So with that in mind, we return you to our regularly scheduled diet of great deals on MacBooks, iMacs, and more.
Occasionally, we like to take a break from featuring Macs on discount and turn our attention full on to the iOS devices that make our day-to-day lives easier, better, more connected (and more distracted). So this week's round up of the latest, greatest deals on Apple gear will feature all your favorite handhelds, so let's get tapping.
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.
The Mac minis are back. These little pint-sized wonders do magical things despite their tiny size, so if you're looking for the very lowest Mac buy-in point, this is the way to go. Granted, you gotta come up with the peripherals, but if you want a Mac and it's time to ditch your old machine, this is a nice way to go. But get 'em while they're hot. Meanwhile, with the iMacs seeing a good price drop on new models, there's not much in the refurb line that can compete in pricing, so hit up the store and grab a new one of those beauties.
We hear rumors that Apple's got some refreshes in mind for the iMac and code in Yosemite certainly is suggestive. But if you can't wait, we have some great deals on some iMacs and on a jumbo display that'll give you that iMac feeling if you picked up one of our highlighted refurb Mac minis in previous weeks, but there aren't any of those cute little refurbs in the deals of this week, as they're gone for now. Never fear, we've got other options, plenty of those.
So maybe you heard the rumor that the latest OS X beta suggests new iMacs are possible soon and you'd like to put off that purchase as long as possible. Good for you, but if the situation is desperate and you've got to get a new machine, consider the refurb market. Nearly new, Apple certified, and savings galore. Go have a look.
With mostly refurbs, but one unopened model in this week's deals, we decided to keep it budget conscious. So all your Macs this week are under one thousand dollars. (Okay, there's one that's a couple bucks more, but it's still a sweet deal.) Whether you roll Air, Pro, mini, or iMac, we've got a deal for you. Plus, don't fret about your iOS gear, as we've got plenty of savings there too.
