We've got big deals to go with big computers today. Seriously, have you seen these 27" monitors and iMacs? They're just gorgeous and it turns out there's a few refurbs out there less than a year old. So if you've been in the market for an iMac, now's your chance.
If you've been buying ATG-branded replacement batteries for the MacBook Pro from Best Buy either directly or via the Geek Squad, you might want to check if any third-party batteries you've bought there have been getting a little too hot lately. Best Buy announced a recall today on 5,100 third-party replacement batteries for Apple's popular notebook after the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported 13 incidents in which the batteries went up in flames. In one case, the fires even caused serious leg injury.
We expected a glut of MacBook Airs to hit the refurb market once Apple announced a refresh of the super light laptop. There's a range of Airs out there for the discerning person in the laptop market who isn't necessarily concerned about the latest and the greatest and they're all incredibly reasonably priced. That, and more, in this week's price slash-o-rama.
It's a good time to be a young Apple fan. Earlier this morning Apple announced the release of a budget friendly 16 GB iPod Touch with Retina Display for $229, and just a couple of hours ago, it dropped the price of its low-end MacBook Pro for students. The new savings drop the price of a new unit by $200, rendering it roughly the same price as a low-end MacBook Air. That's an excellent investment for a machine that could easily last through at least four years of hardcore study.
Sometimes you want all new Mac goodness, and sometimes you want a little upgrade or accessory action for that Mac. We've got you covered in both cases this week, along with the usual bevy of iOS accessories, one of which is especially useful if you drive a car from the 1990s.
We've done it before, we're doing it again. Today's refurb specials are all right around the $1,000 mark. There are plenty of great Macs out there that won't break the bank. Sure they're not $400 plastic PCs that will fall apart after one year's use, but these are still some great deals. Plus great accessories, hand-picked just for you.
To heck with refurbs. We know it's the easiest, cheapest way to get your hands on a new-to-you Mac, but sometimes you just want the new computer smell. Well, here are the best brand new device prices we could find this week. Plus the usual round up of slick accessories for your mobile devices.
Let's take a look at the Mac lineup and see what the barest-bones, cheapest devices we can score might be. You're looking to take a plunge on a Mac and leave Windows behind? Here's how you can make the transition for a little less than buying the newest models.
We're seriously kicking it MacBook Pro style this morning with tons of great deals on what some might call Apple's best laptop. But that's not all we've got in the hopper, so if you're looking to save some dough, check out these great deals.
