With the holiday shopping season upon us, it’s nice to see that the Mac refurb store’s stock is in great shape. You should be able to find a Mac that will fulfill at least one of the items on your shopping list.

Aside from the new 12-inch MacBook that was just released this fall, all of the current Mac models have at least one configuration available, in most cases, there are quite a few from which to choose.

Deals of the Week

We found three deals this week that could make great presents for friends, family, or yourself.

Our first two deals are for portable Macs: the 13-inch MacBook Air and the 15-inch MacBook Pro. I chose these two deals because of the very fast and generous 256 GB flash storage space included with each model. When I’m taking a Mac on the road, I don’t like to have to first pare things down, taking only the apps and data I need for a specific trip. Instead, the larger space lets me pretty much bring my normal work tools with me wherever I go, and if that includes a few games, my favorite tunes, or movies, who am I to complain.

Our last deal is for a 27-inch Retina iMac. This was the baseline Retina iMac Apple introduced in May of 2015. It’s essentially a 2014 Retina iMac with a standard 1 TB 7200 RPM drive, instead of the Fusion or flash drive usually available. This allowed Apple to offer this model at a lower price, and in the refurb store, it represents the least expensive way to put a 27-inch Retina iMac on your desk.
