Sure, the new Mac Pros are finally dropping but you'll have to wait a bit before those end up on the refurb list. But rest assured we'll let you know when they do. Meanwhile, here's some great deals on things that ARE available for your last minute shopping binges.
Mac minis are back in the game after a hiatus around these parts. These little hockey puck-sized powerhouses were some of the first signs of Apple's commitment to shrinkage — but in a good way. And now we see that the cold weather has also gotten the prices of gear down to smaller sizes. So what are you waiting for?
We’re not going to point you in the direction of any Black Friday deals here, as those are covered pretty thoroughly elsewhere. But you should seriously check these deals before camping out all night, as maybe you’ll save even bigger and get to sleep in a nice warm bed after all that turkey. Your call.
When next we meet to discuss the deals of the week, we’ll be in the thick of Thanksgiving and the Black Friday deals will be all around us. The question is, is it worth going into the stores that early on the chance of scoring a Mac deal or could you just go the refurb route and save bigger bucks? We’ll go with the latter.
iWork for Mac users had good reason to celebrate Wednesday as the usually secretive Apple unleashed a volley of information about which features it plans to bring back to the latest Pages, Numbers and Keynote versions with future updates. Could this be a sign of a kinder, gentler Apple? Time will tell, but don't expect to see it similarly sharing future plans for the next iPhone or iPad... that would just be crazy.
Seems like any time a new Apple product is released or updated, within days the company's support forums begin filling up with complaints over a variety of issues -- and the latest MacBook Pro refresh is no exception.
With MacBook Pros getting a refresh, now’s a good chance to get some sweet deals on refurb models, as Apple will be pricing that stock to MOVE. So if you’re in the market for the best full-powered laptop out there, you’ve come to the right place. What about iPad and iPad mini accessories going on sale, you ask? Well, just step inside, friends, step inside.
So apparently there's yet another Apple event next week and most people suspect it's iPad-related, with the possibility of a few surprises thrown in. We wondered ourselves, based on this week's refurb pricing, if there might not be an Apple TV update thrown into the mix (it's the lowest we've seen the price in memory). Meanwhile, we've got some big screen laptop action and more in this week's slice-a-rama.
Assuming Apple is holding the rumored media event next Tuesday, Oct. 22, the media should start receiving invites today, but the rumor mill is abuzz with potential release dates for the hardware expected to be unveiled there.
We're back on the Mac tip with our refurb selections this week and this go-around it's the newest of the new. Nothing here older than one year and some of it even fresher than that. So if you're in the market for a mini or a case for your iPad or something really darn cheap, you've come to the right place.
