Bold move or suicidal jump? BlackBerry maker Research in Motion kicked off its global launch of new handsets on Wednesday by announcing the company is changing its name to match that of its once-iconic brand, a move that seemed to impress more people than the actual handsets it introduced. It remains to be seen if BlackBerry's big bold move will be enough to get smartphone users back on its side, but clearly the company isn't afraid to roll the dice and see where it takes them.
Well, right out of the gate, you have to know we have refurbs because that's a really easy way to pick up a Mac at a great discount. And since we know you're looking for bargains, we'll keep the refurbs right at $1,000 so you can figure out where that tax return is going. But that's not all. By all means, check out this week's awesome refurb deals, but stick around for some sweet for your iOS devices.
CES is the week's big news so hopefully all the new models mean price cuts coming our way on last year's everything. At least, that's how we roll when we're not early adopting. Meanwhile, as we all marvel at the latest and the greatest, here's some pretty great price cuts that will be sure to be a hit with your wallet.
So we can all settle down now that the new year is upon us and we can all get right back up to excited because CES is coming up next week, which means ever so much gear and so many new apps that will make your life simpler, funner, happier, more productive. At any rate, until the release date of those devices, we'll have to content ourselves with these sweet deals.
As soon as Apple rolled out the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display last summer, all the Mac addicts we know began clamoring for more Retina models, and this past fall Apple obliged, introducing a 13-inch version. From the outside, it looks just like its big brother: The same jaw-dropping LED-backlit display, with four times the pixels (2560x1600 in this case). The same advanced ports, including two Thunderbolt ports, two USB 3, HDMI, SDXC, and MagSafe 2. The same thinner, lighter design — this model just 0.75 inches thin (that’s a mere seven one-hundredths of an inch thicker than a MacBook Air) — and weighing only 3.57 pounds. But inside, it's pretty different.
Holy smokes have we got an iPhone 5 deal for you, people. It's not too late to do some last minute shopping. If you still have a few nice people on your list to be very very nice to, then right here's the way to go. Even if that person is you. Especially if that person is you.
We hate to sound like a broken record, but with so many Mac users out there, these kinds of great refurb deals are an excellent chance for someone with a bum machine to pick up a killer deal. Plus with all the new iPhone and iPad buyers out there, people gotta have cases. Sure, we found a couple cool things in here not cases, didn't we? Well, you'll just have to read on to find out.
Jump ahead! Don't read this! Get to the deals below the fold. There are some great sales on refurbs that are limited time offers only and you don't want to miss out on these. Why are you still reading this????
It’s not much of a bold assertion to claim that Apple makes the best notebook keyboards around, so it makes sense that MacBook owners would want to protect those ebony Chiclets from harm. NewerTech has been making keyboard prophylactics longer than anyone, and has now added the latest and greatest Retina-powered MacBook Pro to its lineup.
