Apple Steals & Deals: Sunday, May 5, 2013

By May 5, 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, the Mac mini selection in the refurb store is limited to 2011 models, all with OS X Server. There is some benefit to this configuration. It includes dual drives and the server version of the OS, which is the same as the standard desktop OS, but with server options. That means you can use these Mac minis several ways; as desktop Macs, server Macs, or both.

There are also more 27-inch 2012 iMacs in the store; no matter what configuration you're looking for, you'll probably find it in stock.
