New Year, new you. That's the general shape of things mostly we hear these days. But we don't just want to focus on how you can be a better you, because we like you pretty well just the way you are. However, if you do have a hankering to make some improvements, we can hook you up.
Happy New Year! Welcome to the first of this year's fantastic Deals columns. We've got some refurb hits for you, plus some great pricing on fresh-out-of-the-box new Macs. And as always, the grooviest gear for your iOS devices at killer prices. So, dive in and see what kind of dough we're gonna save you this week.
It hasn't been the hugest week for price drops, as Apple had shuttered the App Store for updates and the like over the holidays, but we still managed to find some great deals for you to spend those iTunes gift cards you picked fished out of your stockings. So take a stroll through this sweet gallery of sweet deals and get tapping.
Typically we feature mostly refurbs in our deals, but to start your new year off right, we'll throw in a few brand new Macs. Plus, we've got your post-holiday break down of the very best accessories and a few other things to get your iOS presents protected and tucked away safe.
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.
Yeah, we got your gaming covered this week, with nothing but fun and games and some serious classics that go back centuries. So tie your laces tight, crack your knuckles, and get ready to get your game on for this week's action.
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?
All right, people, remember what we said last year? We weren't going to let the holidays frazzle us. We were going to be on top of things, we weren't going to be a disorganized mess, we weren't going to be playing "New Year's Resolution" catch up. So let's get cracking. This week's apps are all about getting stuff done, getting organized, paying our bills, but we've got a little holiday cheer for you as well. Consider it "ho ho ho" meets "go go go!"
It's a definitely grab-bag weekly sale this week, with apps from across the spectrum getting their prices peeled down to the bare. It's Black Friday for the shoppers but it's always a price drop Friday when you swing around to MacLife. So dive right in, if you're awake enough to read this and still have a few bucks left after the shopping madness of the day.
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.
