This week, Apple added the 4th generation Apple TV to the refurb store, in both the 32 GB and 64 GB configurations. If you’ve wanted to pick up the new Apple TV, this is a good time; and who doesn’t want a refurb discount on the Apple TV?

Moving beyond the Apple TV, the refurb store has a few Mac minis in stock, but no 2013 Mac Pros. To tell you the truth, I can’t recommend the Mac Pros any longer; they’re just too long in the tooth. Of course, if you need to replace an existing Mac Pro in your environment, then by all means watch the refurb store; they’ll be back in stock soon.

Deals of the Week

Our deals this week are for higher-end Mac configurations. We usually like to highlight a few entry-level or mid-range models in our deals, but this week, the lust for power overtook me.

Our first deal is for a current version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Air. This model is decked out with a Dual-Core i7 processor and 512 GB of PCIe Flash storage. This should be a real performance leader in portable Macs.

Up next is a 2015 MacBook Pro, This more powerful portable Mac comes with a Quad-Core i7, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe Flash drive. In addition, it’s equipped with dual graphics systems, so you can save the battery when performing mundane tasks, or hog all the power for fast graphics performance.

Last up is a 2014 27-inch Retina iMac with a 4.0 GHz Quad-Core i7, 8 GB of RAM, and a 1 TB Fusion drive. It also has the AMD Radeon R9 M290X to power the graphics.
