We're gonna leave behind the MacBook Air line and the lower powered 1.4GHz processors and focus on just the more powerful models in the world of refurbed Macs. This week, we're all about speed and power and just crushing it. So let's get right into these big beautiful Macs — and we'll see what kind of a hook up we can give you in the accessory category too.
There's been lots of news, discussion, and rumors about upcoming Apple products this week, including Apple Watch, the 12-inch MacBook Air, and the supposed iPad Pro. But that's not all! There's plenty of info on current Apple products as well, such as how you'll be able to view Super Bowl XLIX on your iOS device for free, and 10 advanced tips for OS X Yosemite that you should try if you haven't already.
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?
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.
This week's refurbs, specifically in the MacBook Air range, are really a matter of horse trading. Bigger screen or faster flash-storage? Newer model versus nearly the same older, bigger model with only a tiny bump on the price tag? It's all a matter of what you need versus what you want. Also this week: the 2013 Mac Pro!
So while you're all busy checking out iOS 8 and enjoying tap tap tapping your mobile screens, we've got a boatload of discounts for you. While we've enjoyed the latest, newest Airs and the like coming to the refurb store, this week we're returning to our ~$1,000 limit on refurb Macs. Part of what makes refurbs so awesome is their discount pricing, but once you're up over $1,500 anyway, a discount seems less pressing. So without further ado, here's the best sorta kinda under a grand Macs and plenty other much cheaper goodies to boot.
When Paper by 53 first appeared in the App Store, its beauty was in its simplicity. Unlike other iOS drawing apps, it didn't try to emulate a desktop workspace by cramming a bunch of features onto a small screen; with an elegant set of digital tools, it redefined our expectations of art in the Multitouch era. In many ways, Pencil is the perfect complement to Paper's singular style.
Can you hear how good this week's deals are? We hope you can because we've got some amazing deals on speakers and headphones for you, along with our usual assortment of refurb Macs too, if you're more interested in a computer than a sound system. Well, don't just sit there, get checking out these deals.
One of the knocks we hear against Apple products pretty often is that they're expensive. Sure, they aren't as inexpensive as $200 netbooks, but they're also not hastily designed, shoddily manufactured garbage you throw away in 2 years either. But there are ways to crack that price issue a little, and with this week's refurbs, we've got the week's lowest price, base models of all the flagship Macs just ripe for your wallets. iOS products tend to land a lot closer to the same market prices out there, but if you want some cheap gear for them, you've come to the right place.
