Apple Steals & Deals: Sunday, November 18, 2012

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.

This week, I found a slightly reduced price on a 27-inch iMac. This specific model is usually listed in the refurb store at $1,419, but it's showing up today at $1,359. There are also additional Mac minis in the store, but they're all configured with Lion Server OS. On the plus side, they're eligible for a free upgrade to Mountain Lion Server; on the down side, the price is high vs. the current generation of the Mac mini in standard non-server configuration. So, unless you need the server version specifically, I'd look at the new Mac minis instead.
