iPhone 6, iOS 8, iWatch — there were plenty of news and rumors flying this week about Apple's highly anticipated hardware and software. On top of that, iTunes and Minecraft got updates, Apple's "factory outlet" store returned to eBay, and an iPhone made its way back to its owner after taking a detour to Japan, plus we've got tips for movie editing and for dealing with that pesky "Other" data on your iPhone.
Summer's in full swing now, and we've got deals on everything from portables to good old-fashioned desktop units. Act quickly, and you'll even save a few bucks of some peripherals to enhance your enjoyment of each. Pick up a few and save the rest of your cash for a few days in the sun.
If you're in the market for a deal on an Apple Certified Refurbished unlocked iPhone 5 complete with a one-year warranty, look no further than the Factory Outlet eBay Store, where deals can be had for as little as $449.
So Apple cut prices on their iMacs and put a little bit of spec bump into things, but what are you paying for and what are you getting for that money? We've got some of the standout items like Mac minis (get 'em while they're hot) and the usual assortment of slashed price laptops. But what can you get in a refurb iMac for the same price as the new iMac? Let's take a look.
The Mac minis are back. These little pint-sized wonders do magical things despite their tiny size, so if you're looking for the very lowest Mac buy-in point, this is the way to go. Granted, you gotta come up with the peripherals, but if you want a Mac and it's time to ditch your old machine, this is a nice way to go. But get 'em while they're hot. Meanwhile, with the iMacs seeing a good price drop on new models, there's not much in the refurb line that can compete in pricing, so hit up the store and grab a new one of those beauties.
We hear rumors that Apple's got some refreshes in mind for the iMac and code in Yosemite certainly is suggestive. But if you can't wait, we have some great deals on some iMacs and on a jumbo display that'll give you that iMac feeling if you picked up one of our highlighted refurb Mac minis in previous weeks, but there aren't any of those cute little refurbs in the deals of this week, as they're gone for now. Never fear, we've got other options, plenty of those.
One of each, that's what we have for you this refurb Thursday. One of nearly each model Apple makes of everything that's refurbed for your budget conscious decisions. And since we're eyeing your wallets for you, we'll keep it to the base models. If you ever wanted to get in on the Apple ground floor, this week's got you covered. We're light on accessories, but heavy on the goods.
With mostly refurbs, but one unopened model in this week's deals, we decided to keep it budget conscious. So all your Macs this week are under one thousand dollars. (Okay, there's one that's a couple bucks more, but it's still a sweet deal.) Whether you roll Air, Pro, mini, or iMac, we've got a deal for you. Plus, don't fret about your iOS gear, as we've got plenty of savings there too.
The latest iPad and iPad mini models hitting the refurb counter is still big news if you're looking to pick up a tablet and hoping to save some dough, so we have some great deals to start things off in that realm. Then a regular member of the weekly deals, the MacBook Air sees some serious price drop action. Plus, what should you do with the money you save? Why, buy gear for your new devices of course.
Usually, we hit you up with tons and tons of refurb action, but sometimes you're looking at some serious deals on brand spanking new fresh out of the box Mac action and sometimes we've got just the ticket. Well, today is one of those sometimes. And we'll throw in a couple refurbs just for old time's sake. But take a deep whiff. Smell that? That's new Mac smell and there's nothing like it on earth.
