The base model of the MacBook is out of stock again. I’m not sure which Mac model is out of stock most often: the MacBook or the Mac mini.

Deals of the Week

This week’s deals include a cautionary note. Apple is expected to introduce one or more Mac updates before the end of the year, with late October or early November being the likely time. If you’re looking for a MacBook Pro, Mac mini, or even an iMac, you may want to hold out to see if the Mac models you’re interested in are going to receive an update.

Our first deal is for a 2015 13.3-inch MacBook Air with a Dual-Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of flash storage. This middle-of-the-pack MacBook Air has a lot of versatility, with a value price that may be just what you need for working on the run.

Our second deal is a holdover from last week. Yes, it’s true; the refurb store still has a 2014 Mac mini in stock. This mini comes with a 2.8 GHz Dual-Core i5, 8 GB RAM, and a 1 TB Fusion drive. That’s a nice configuration for a Mac mini.
