In the refurb store this week is a 2011 27-inch iMac. This is the last model year of the iMacs to include a built-in optical drive (CD/DVD SuperDrive). It also has its SD card slot conveniently on the side, where it’s easy to access. Later models of the iMac have the SD card on the back, where it’s a bit awkward to access. If you need a SuperDrive with your iMac, this may be good buy for you.

Also new in the store this week are cellular versions of the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. This is the first appearance of cellular models of these new iPads in the refurb store, so if they’re on your wish list, grab one while they’re still in stock.
