Apple Steals & Deals: Sunday, December 2, 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, we found a 21.5-inch iMac below the magic $1,000 threshold. At a cool $979, this is a reasonably configured 2011 model, not one of the older 2010 models that show up from time to time.

If you're looking for a MacBook Air, and don't mind an older model, there's a 2010 13.3-inch MacBook Air for $799.

Either of these deals would make great Christmas gifts for a family member (or yourself).
