Apple Steals & Deals: Sunday, February 17, 2013

By February 17, 2013

Follow me on:

The Apple refurb store is my go-to place for finding discounts on Apple products, from Macs to iPhones, iPods to iPads. Just about every product that Apple makes will eventually end up in the refurb store. I check the refurb store every week and post the best deals that I find. I tend to focus on recent generation products, but once in a while an older item is available for a price that's just too good to pass up. If you're looking for a deal on an Apple product, check this blog every Sunday.

This week, prices are still falling on both MacBook Airs and 15-inch MacBook Pros with Retina displays. We like falling prices, but don't expect to see them fall any further. This may be the best time to buy a current year refurb, at least in those two categories. Also this week, a few 21.5-inch iMacs have returned to the store. The 27-inch models still haven't made an appearance, but we hope to see them soon.
