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.
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.
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Portable Macs by default are set up so that they will sleep whenever you close the lid, unless they are plugged into an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse. But, sometimes you want your Mac to be doing work while the lid is closed when you are not in this situation. With a simple Terminal command, you can easily make your Mac stay awake so that apps will remain running while you carry your MacBook around.
The existence of the Mac mini on the refurb rolls is like a cycle. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. Well, this week, fans of the little desktop that could, you're in luck. We've got a few highlighted here and Apple has plenty more. Plus, a little something for everyone in the Apple computer line, and all of it hitting that sweet spot of under or just a bit above $1,000. And that's not even getting into our iOS gear bonanza. So let's dig in.
This week, we're gonna save you some money. Sure, we save you money with our weekly deals every single Thursday, but today, we're looking at big money. We're talking savings of over $300 on refurb Macs and over $700 on new, out-of-the-box Macs. We're talking a huge chunk of cash staying right where you want it — in your pocket — while you pick up a great Apple computer. And then, if you have an iOS device, you can spend some of your savings on a little something for your them, too.
This week is all about the power as we've got deals that'll turn you into a powerhouse laptop god at a low, low price and external batteries that'll keep your iOS action rocking no matter where you go. So tuck in to the discounts and get your credit cards ready.
