For some reason, Apple rarely runs sales. If you're looking for ways to stock up on MacBooks, iPhones, iPads and more at a discount, on way to go is for refurbished devices.
While these devices have been vetted for functionality to ensure you're not grabbing a lemon, the real benefit is that refurbished Apple products are usually hundreds of dollars off the original price tag. To give you an idea of what's in store, here are 10 refurbished Apple products you can shop for ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Week.
Your home office doesn't feel quite complete without a desktop monitor that can vividly display your videos and photos, has a powerful processor that can handle essential software and sports plenty of storage. Apple's iMac 21.5-inch screen checks all the boxes.
Need more space for some of your larger files? This edition still has the same powerhouse processor but with double the storage space than the 21.5-inch design above.
Do you need double the storage and a bigger display? In that case, this iMac fits the bill. It has a 1TB hard drive, as well as 8GB of memory, a vibrant 27-inch display, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and it also comes with a wired keyboard and mouse to complete your desktop setup.
Enhance your MacBook experience with this large desktop monitor. Thanks to its Thunderbolt technology, you can hook the monitor up with any Thunderbolt-enabled Mac to create a secondary screen. This allows you to toggle between the two devices, for faster, more streamlined computer usage.
This 15-inch MacBook Pro has over five million pixels for visual clarity Apple calls its Retina Display. With this MacBook Pro, you can also expect a high-definition FaceTime camera, fast WiFi support and an Intel Core i7 processor.
The MacBook Pro 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo still can handle all of your everyday tasks, and then some. And more importantly, its unibody design means it can handle bumps and falls, making it an especially great option for any self-proclaimed klutz.
For anyone who totes their computer to and from work or school, a compact design is a must. That's where this 13.3-inch MacBook Pro comes in.
Need a MacBook that can hook up with your new Thunderbolt desktop? Look no further than this Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Air. It comes with seven hours of continuous battery life, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and a speedy Intel Core i5 processor.
What makes a MacBook Air different than a MacBook pro is all the design details. MacBook Air notebooks, like this 128GB one, come with a thinner screen and overall lighter design.
The final Apple notebook deal worth shopping this week is the 11-inch MacBook Air. This model features Intel Turbo Boost Technology, which can help you squeeze out power from the notebook when you really need it and save energy when it's not in use.
