We went to the Apple refurb store expecting to see some price drops after the mid-week Apple event that revealed new Macs and iPads. We were pleased to see both the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 with nice price cuts that make these previous-generation (as of 10/16/2014) iPads very attractive.

As for Macs, there are no Mac minis in the refurb store this week, so I’ll just have to keep an eye out for their next appearance and see if the prices drop as I expect them to.

Deals of the Week

This week finds a 2012 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with a 500 GB hard drive as one of our deals of the week. If you need more storage capability in a portable, this may be the MacBook Pro for you.

Our two remaining deals this week are both for 2012 27-inch iMacs. The two offerings differ in the graphics system and processor speed. Both, however, will prove to be very good choices if you’re looking for a desktop Mac with a built-in large display. And you get to choose whether to save a bit of cash or go all-out for a bit more performance.
