This week, I’ve added a new feature to our weekly Steals & Deals; a new Mac Accessories section that will replace the old Mac Accessories section. If you’re scratching your head, wondering how this can be a new feature when it was a category that was included in the past, well, that’s understandable.

What makes the new and improved Mac Accessories section different is that we’re leaving behind the Mac refurb store as the only source for Mac accessories (mainly because Apple hasn’t updated its accessories in several years), and broadening our nets to find Mac peripherals from just about anywhere. At the same time, we’re also going to concentrate on new items and not refurbs for this category.

But don’t worry; the rest of the steals & deals will continue to be stock from Apple’s own refurb store.

Deals of the Week

This week’s deals feature a pair of Retina iMacs, one in the 21.5-inch size, and the second in the 27-inch variety. Both are configured with Fusion drives, and both share the same $1,669.00 price tag.

So, what do you get for $1,669.00? Quite a bit. The smaller iMac comes equipped with a Quad-Core i7 processor, and the larger iMac uses a Quad-Core i5 processor. Both come with 8 GB of RAM, though the larger iMac allows for RAM upgrades, while the smaller iMac does not.

Both make use of a Retina display, so perhaps the deciding factor will be, which iMac do you have room for on your desk?
