Looking for a fabulous deal on an Apple or related product? Well, so am I! Every Sunday, I scan the Apple refurbished store to see which Apple products are currently available, and which ones represent good bargains. I try to look only at current versions of Macs, but once in a while there will be a great deal on a last-generation product that may be too good to pass up.

The refurb store is filling up with 2012 versions of Macs and related products. I'm highlighting the newer 2012 items here, but it's also a great time to take advantage of price reductions on 2011 models. For example, the 2011 17-inch MacBook Pros have had an average price drop of $50.00. Other 2011 Macs are seeing similar reductions in prices that were a good deal just a few weeks ago.
One new item I've included in the list below is the 2012 model of the AirPort Express router. This Wi-Fi router can handle the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously. You can also use it to create a special guest access network that allows your guests to use the Internet without being able to access any of your local Macs or other network resources.
Quantities are limited, so if any of these tickle your fancy, be fast on the trigger to make a purchase.
