Apple Steals & Deals: Sunday, Aug 25, 2013

By August 25, 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 refurb store has MacBook Pros for under $1,000 and multiple Mac mini server configurations. One of the best deals is a slightly older 2011 MacBook Air; at $959, it includes a 256 GB SSD instead of the more common 128 GB SSD configuration. It may be just the thing for back-to-school.

If you're in the market for the current version of the Mac Pro, which will let you easily add expansion cards and internal storage, a wide selection is available.
