Get Apple, Microsoft, and HP Computers and Mobile Devices At Huge Discounts This Weekend

If you want to make sure not to get gouged on a hardware purchase, you should always keep your eye on factory refurbished sales from the world’s biggest computer manufacturers. While most models are either returns or overstock, all get a complete once-over and are certified as 100 percent working and ready to roll, often with an extended warranty.

And the biggest selling point: they’re often hundreds or even thousands off their regular retail price.

Check out this selection of some of the best desktop, laptop and tablet sales on factory refurbished items going on right now, as well as some deals on accessories you want to pick up while you’re at it.

Apple

If you need an iPad (or a second one for your kids) and don’t require the latest and hottest version, then the Apple iPad 3 ($199.99; originally $399) or Apple iPad 4 ($219.99; originally $499) at half off or more might be right up your alley. Both are WiFi-enabled, sport a 9.7-inch Retina display screen and come with the full package of accessories, including a charger and case. The iPad 3 has 64GB of storage, while the iPad 4 holds 32GB of space, so judge your drive needs accordingly and load up.

If you’d rather go for something a little more portable, the 3rd Gen iPad Mini ($239.99; originally $399) with a 7.9-inch display is certainly more compact, but without losing any punching power. With WiFi capabilities and a 1.3GHz A7 processor, you’ll be able to stream video, browse photos and do loads of multi-tasking with no lagging and up to 10 hours of battery life. This model also has 64GB storage, more than enough room to keep all those media files and docs on this handy little helper.

But if raw power is what you’re seeking, your best bet might be the iPad Pro ($348.99; originally $599), housing a lightning quick A9X processor with 2GB of RAM to speed along as fast as your fingers can fly. With a built-in 12 MP iSight rear camera and 5 MP front-facing camera, you’ll snap stunning images with crystal clarity, which you can save in the 32GB hard drive. This deal also comes with the full accessories pack, including a charger and case.

Of course, sometimes you need more than a tablet, which is where half off on an Apple MacBook Pro ($999.97; originally $1,999) might best suit your needs. One of the world’s top laptops, the MacBook Pro with a 15.4-inch high-resolution LED-backlit Retina display is powered by a robust quad-core 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 processor that delivers speedy performance. With full WiFi support, a 720p FaceTime HD webcam, and a 99.5W/h Li-Poly battery for smooth operations for up to 9 hours, it’s a winner. And did we mention…it’s half off the regular price?

Microsoft

Since not everybody is an Apple fan, no problem…you can also get big savings on almost every member of the Microsoft Surface family as well. The Surface Pro is Microsoft’s high-end tablet option — and they are currently dealing on a pair of Surface Pro 4 models: one with an Intel Core i7 processor ($912.99; originally $1,699.99); the other with a Core i5 ($1,199; originally $1,699.99). Both feature a 12.3-inch PixelSense Display to watch all your favorite movies and shows, 512GB of SSD storage to save and store essential files, and 9 hours of battery life.

For those who can’t decide between the utility of a laptop and the mobility of a tablet, the Surface Book splits the difference with its detachable keyboard component. Right now, Microsoft is offering $400 off a Microsoft Surface Book 2 ($1,100.99; originally $1,499.99) or almost $1,400 off another Surface Book model ($1,109; originally $2,499.99), bringing each to virtually the same price. Again, the main key difference is the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, though each sports many of the same features, including 13.5-inch touchscreens, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and 256GB of storage space.

But if you already know a laptop is your jam, you can just go original-flavor Surface with either a Surface ($1,448.95; originally $2,499.99) or Surface 2 model ($1,509; originally $2,499.99), both with huge savings. Both are run on Intel Core i7 processors with a speed of 2.90GHz and 16GB of RAM, utilize a 13.5-inch LED display and hold 512GB of storage space.

HP

Of course, even in a world dominated by laptops and tablets, there’s still a home for a trusty reliable desktop computer — and they’re available at some super-low prices. With an AMD A8 7600B dual-core processor and 8GB of RAM under the hood, the HP EliteDesk ($229.99; originally $599.99) delivers fast and lag-free performance. Running on an included Windows 7 Professional OS with a 256GB hard drive, you’ll get full security features, media centricity, networking, and virtual disk support to handle all your personal and business-related tasks.

And since a computer’s utility is pretty tough to experience without a monitor, HP is also offering $10 off the price of their HP 21kd 20.7-inch LED monitor ($89.99; originally $99.99) as well. Tiltable from minus-5 to 20 degrees for more comfort during long work or gaming sessions, this monitor features anti-glare technology, a 1920×1080 resolution, and 6,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for vividly sharp images, no matter what you’re watching.

Accessories

With your new hardware, you can make sure it’s safeguarded from harm with a One Power 6-outlet and 4-USB port tower surge protector ($29.99; originally $40.99). With 1,800-Joule protection and a clean power filter to absorb excess energy and remove harmful waves from electrical currents, this protector shields up to 10 devices from the effects of lightning strikes, transformer malfunctions, power outages and more.

Replictronics is a company that’s bringing the 80s roaring back, starting with the Replitronics Hotline 16000 Power Bank ($34.99; originally $39.99). Sure, it may look like a Madonna-era Walkman, but it’s actually a multi-functional, portable power bank with the ability to charge up to three devices at once via USB-3.0, USB-C, and 10W wireless charging for Qi-enabled devices. Plus — it looks like a Walkman!

If you lost hours in an arcade during the go-go 80s, you’ll appreciate the Replitronics USB Charge Machine ($49.99; originally $59.99). At just 8.5 inches high, this perfect 1/6th scale replica of an iconic arcade change machine also sports 6 USB ports capable of charging up all six of your devices at the same time.

For those times where an outlet is nowhere to be found, the RAVPower 24W 3-Port Solar Charger ($59.99; originally $89.99) has your back. Just unfold this portable solar panel, let it drink in the sun’s rays, then plug in your smartphones, tablets and other devices for premium solar charging power anywhere and anytime you need a boost.

The EVE Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver ($59.99; originally $69.99) is ideal for connecting any of your Bluetooth audio earphones or headphones to any of your non-Bluetooth enabled devices. Now, you plug in to your Nintendo Switch, Playstation, smartphones, car audio system, and all your other gadgets  that aren’t Bluetooth-ready and feed audio right to your headphones for up to 8 hours of wireless play on a single charge.

When you need eyes in hard-to-reach places, the Sinji Flexible Borescope Camera for Android and iOS ($29.95; originally $38.79) is mighty handy.  With a 2-meter cable, you can sneak the Sinji’s waterproof, all-seeing eye and six powerful LED lights in to investigate anything from a blocked drain to a defective machine part. With its included app, it’ll even take photos or record video footage and save it directly to your smartphone, tablet or PC.

Finally, the Pictar Video Chat Kit ($94.99; originally $129.99) gives you all the pieces to immediately improve the look of any videos you shoot. With a flexible, durable tripod to position your camera, a compact, powerful, high-quality LED light to bathe your subjects, and an attachable wide-angle smart lens to expand the range of your images, your video calls or conferences will look more like a network TV interview.
