Some stock in the Mac App store is showing signs of running low. This is particularly true of the 2015 MacBook lineup, which is showing only the base model as available in all colors, and no stock at all of the high-end configuration.

Mac minis, as usual, are having stocking problems, and there are holes in the MacBook Air lineup, particularly the larger 13.3-inch models.

We’re expecting some new Mac models to be announced sometime in the fall, most likely a new MacBook Pro, but that rarely causes turmoil in the Mac refurb store. Perhaps we’re just seeing Mac models being pulled from the store to be provisioned with the brand new macOS Sierra, which will be released on the 20th of September.

Deals of the Week

Deals this week are for two of the popular portable Mac models, a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro.

Let’s start with the 13.3-inch 2016 MacBook Air. This Mac is equipped with a 1.6 GHz i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB PCIe flash storage. As configurations go, this is pretty run of the mill, but it’s far from shabby and it has a great price associated with it, so scan down to the MacBook Air section for further details.

Up next is a 2015 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. The smaller of the MacBook Pro models still sports a Retina display and a fast 2.7 GHz i5 processor. You will find 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB PCIe-based flash storage system, all at a very nice price. You can find more details in the MacBook Pro section, below.
