Things are getting a bit thin on the ground at Apple's refurb store as the holiday season marches on. That favorite, the Mac mini, always the first off the shelves is out of stock, the only iPads are the pricier models with cellular capabilities, iPod touches only start at the 32GB level. Suffice to say, people are buying Apple this season. But let's see what goodies we can still find under the tree, shall we?
One of each is our promise this week. Some weeks we hook you up with six deals on MacBook Airs alone, but this week, we wanted to look a little closer and deliver up the very best deal we could find on one of each awesome Apple product, so let's see what's the best of the bunch. And with all your savings, let's see what kind of accessories you can snag up on the cheap as well.
So Black Friday and Cyber Monday came and went, but don't worry — there are still plenty more deals out there, and you won't even have to face the the crowds and clamor of one of the year's busiest shopping days! One thing you can count on is that our weekly deals happen year round and you can always find a great one on any given Thursday, right here. So let's see what this week has to offer.
In the spirit of the season, we're taking on one of our own columns here on Mac|Life and going toe-to-toe, price tag to price tag. There's a great round up of Black Friday deals on our front page today, but let's see if we can beat a few of those deals with some refurb selections. Keep in mind, the Black Friday prices highlighted elsewhere are on new items, whereas refurbs are used products, but Apple-certified and good to go. So if you don't mind used Apples, let the games begin!
This week, all our refurb Mac deals are from this year. With the approaching Black Friday deals coming up, there will be some pretty sweet pricing coming down the pike on Cupertino's line of products, so rather than offer you the lowest price models from 2012, it's the newest refurbs out there. So start your holiday shopping earlier than the mobs and hook up with some deals right now.
To mix up our refurb presentations this week, we're going to show you the range from base model to the priciest option on the market. Depending on the week, Apple has just about every stop between the two points, so if you want more than the base but less than the biggest ticket, there's probably something for you.
They went quickly as usual, the refurb Mac minis. Gone after appearing briefly last week, despite Apple's refresh of the pint-sized desktop. So this week, in their honor, we'll feature other small devices, meaning if you're looking to save money on some iOS products and don't need the very latest model Air, this is the place to save some serious cash and pick up some great products.
Could it be Apple's refresh of the Mac mini that has these beloved little boxes back in refurb-land, ready for you to snatch up at deal prices? Hmm, could be. All we know for sure is that we're not complaining and you shouldn't either, just hop on board these awesome deals.
We've got to say that there's a product in this week's deals that blows our minds. We won't say which one here, but it's a definite problem solver that hooks you up with some serious coolness and the price is a knockout. So enjoy this week's offerings of tasty Mac deals and when you see it, we hope you recognize a piece of genius when it's right there in front of you.
We're gonna be straight with you here: we've got some snazzy deals this week, but when we saw those gorgeous 27" Retina Display iMacs today they really knocked us out. It's always like that when the newest Macs are up there on the big screen. Which is not to say these aren't pretty amazing machines at astounding prices this week, but we suspect that, like us, you may still have new iMac stars in your eyes. Still, there are some incredible deals so let's get to the good stuff for this week.
