This week we double your pleasure with great deals on Macs that not only don't crack the thousand-buck threshold, but also happen to be the freshest Macs on the block. No refurbs over a year old — and some are even younger! Let's see what this week's discounts are all about.
We've got two big surprise deals for you this week. Not only is everyone's favorite bundle of joy, the Mac Mini, back in business with multiple models ready for your hot little hands, but we've also got the first batch of 2015 refurbs ready to power your digital life right into the stratosphere. Don't don't waste time reading this boilerplate — let's get on to the good stuff!
Happy summer! Sure, we know it's not the official start of summer, but for loads of our readers classes are out and it's time to hit the pool. Just don't take your iPhone in with you. While we do have deals on a few protective cases for various models of iPhones this week, none of them are waterproof. Get some sun and get some gear — let's get this column started!
A new Mac is a long-term investment. You don't want to be stuck with the wrong one for years and years, so we sorted through every option for every model to help pair you with your perfect match. [via TechRadar]
Some might say that a new trackpad isn’t much of an upgrade for a laptop. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display also has an updated processor to boast of, along with improved graphics. That’s it for changes — but that’s all it needs. It was already one of Apple’s best machines, offering more than enough speed for most people along with a Retina screen for a good price.
This week we're focused on size. Since the Mac Mini is off the refurb shelf for the week, we thought we'd turn our sights toward some of the biggest items (and the biggest deals). Generally we stick to the lower end of the spectrum where the lower-price deals can be found, but even when you have a big budget, you want to save, right? We also have our first entries into the "deals on Apple Watch accessories" category.
This week we have a variety of options on everyone's favorite little desktop, the Mac Mini, with a tough choice at the higher end of the lineup. Plus, we've got a few variations of the MacBook Air, as well as an array of gadget boosters, cases, headphones, and all sorts of whatnots this week.
Lots of news and rumors on the Apple hardware front today: Apple apparently has big improvements planned for its first Apple Watch software update, as well as what could be huge news for Apple TV. Furthmore, updated Macs are rumored to hit as early as this week! In other news, we no longer have to rely on leaked pictures from the set — we've got a honest-to-goodness official trailer of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic to cap off our Apple Daily for Monday.
We've done weekly deals where we've set the price bar at under one grand, but with recent price cuts Apple instituted this year, we think we can go one better. So this week, we're going to drop our high price down to $900. That's right: all the goodness this week is even more affordable than some of our usual deals on Macs and Apple-centric goodness. Let's get going, bargain hunters.
They're baaaaaaack. Oh boy, do we have a roster of Mac Minis for you this week. And since they're so brand spanking new, we thought we'd only let the youngest of the Apple line onto the list, so it's all 2014 models up and newer, starting off with everyone's favorite little guy.
