The holidays are just around the corner, and that means it’s gift giving season. Whether you’re shopping for friends, family, or even for yourself, you can put a big smile on someone’s face by gifting them a Mac product. And believe it or not, you can do that without breaking the bank if you can find the right refurbished product.
Since we’re all staying home more often and many of us are telecommuting, it’s likely you or someone on your list is in need of an upgrade. Fortunately, Apple offers a wide range of options in price and size. The Mac Mini makes an Apple computer much more affordable, while their desktop iMacs can get pretty pricey but offer plenty of bells and whistles and work perfectly for a home office situation. There are also the more conveniently portable options like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, which let you work or play from the bed to the couch and everywhere in between.
No matter the Apple computer you’re coveting, there are great refurbished versions available now with much more wallet-friendly price tags. And depending on the grade rating, they typically only have slight physical markings while being guaranteed to run like new. Here are some great choices on sale for up to 61 percent off in a wide variety of sizes:
