We're mixing it up a little here by leaving the MacBook Airs out of this week's Deal Roundup. There are still plenty of those models on tap, but we wanted to give a little shout out to the MacBook Pro, the souped up bigger brother to the lighter than air Apple laptops. And so, in honor of our beloved machine that we're currently writing this article on, we present some great Pros. Plus some interesting accessories that make things a bit more fun for you.
Well 2015 is fully upon us now and some old favorites are back in the refurb shop, plus an old favorite all spiffed up in its newest incarnation, but you've got to move quick. We've got nothing in the deals column this week that's any older than 2014, so these are some of the newest used machines you can get your hands on and they're all Apple checked, cleaned, and approved, so let's get going.
This portable SSD doesn’t take the honor of the smallest and lightest drive of its kind from Freecom’s mSSD, yet at just under two ounces, it’s still perfectly pocketable. Transcend has opted for a plastic enclosure with rounded edges and, like the mSSD, you need to carry the cable to connect it up.
So, the Apple refurb market is still recovering from holiday shoppers, so we thought we'd switch things up a little this week, and instead of finding you the newest models on the market, we thought we'd dip back into the older models where the savings really start to get out there. So if you're looking for a secondary machine or money's particularly tight but need is particularly high, we've got some youngish models that still have what it takes.
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.
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.
Apple's Photo Library for iCloud has so far relied on syncing with photos and videos taken with iDevices, but that may change soon. The beta for iCloud.com now allows users to upload photos they've taken with devices other than their Apple products to the cloud, which immediately makes the service a more attractive method of storing photos.
A new report from suggests that the screen may not be the only thing that's big about the iPhone 6 — it may be getting a substantially bigger storage module as well.
