We're going to keep things fresh and new this time around with Apple hardware only from 2014. If you want newish but don't have quite enough money to get the brand-new machine of your dreams, then these lightly refurbished Macs will give you more power for your dollar. And if you want to spend some of your savings from your Mac on accessories like a phone case or an external hard drive, then we've got you covered there too.
Well 2015 is fully upon us now and some old favorites are back in the refurb shop, plus an old favorite all spiffed up in its newest incarnation, but you've got to move quick. We've got nothing in the deals column this week that's any older than 2014, so these are some of the newest used machines you can get your hands on and they're all Apple checked, cleaned, and approved, so let's get going.
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.
The latest iPad and iPad mini models hitting the refurb counter is still big news if you're looking to pick up a tablet and hoping to save some dough, so we have some great deals to start things off in that realm. Then a regular member of the weekly deals, the MacBook Air sees some serious price drop action. Plus, what should you do with the money you save? Why, buy gear for your new devices of course.
Today we focus on the little guys. The smaller end of the market of Apple products. The entry level. If you've been trying to convince a friend or relative to make the switch, these lower priced options might just be the ticket to helping convince them what you've known all along.
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.
