TMO has a new deal for you today, literally, because we have a discount on a new product. MacMall is offering the 16GB iPod nano (7th generation) for $147. This is the current generation device that was introduced in October, and it's 1 percent off the retail price. MacMall is offering free shipping, too.
Apple is offering the refurbished 27-inch Thunderbolt Display for $829, 17-percent off the cost of a new one. This is the 2560 x 1440 LED-backlit display that works for every current shipping Mac except the one that needs it the most, the Mac Pro. We digress, however, as the point is that it ships for free with a one year limited warranty. If you want a companion display for your Thunderbolt-equipped Mac, this is the one to get.
Apple is offering up the refurbished MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Quad-core Intel i7 for $1,529. This is the current generation MacBook Pro released in June of 2012, and it represents a 15 percent discount over a new unit. It ships for free and comes with a one-year limited warranty.
Apple is offering up the refurbished MacBook Air 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 for $849. This is the entry level model for the current generation released in June of 2012. It ships for free and comes with a one-year limited warranty.
Since Apple doesn't seem likely to launch a new product for the TV market, we know lots of people are going to be thinking about getting an Apple TV. Fortunately, Apple has some refurbished units for US$85, a 14 percent discount over a new one. This is the current generation device that was released in March of 2012, and it ships for free.
We almost hate to make things hard for folks trying to decide which iPad is right for them, but Apple is offering a 3rd generation 16GB iPad for $379 (this is the model formerly known as the "new iPad"). It compares to $499 for the current generation iPad with Retina Display and $329 for iPad mini. It ships for free and comes with a one-year limited warranty.
Apple is offering a deal on a refurbished 11.6-inch MacBook Air 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 for $1,049. This is a current generation device originally released in June of 2012. Note that the processor was upgraded to a 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7, which makes the price of a new model $1,249. The refurb price is 16 percent less.
iPad mini goes on pre-order on Friday, but remember that there's the iPad 2, too. Apple is currently offering a refurbished 64GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G for $579 (for Verizon). There's a white one (same specs, also for Verizon) available, too. That compares to the smaller iPad mini with the same capacity and resolution at $659 and $829 for the higher resolution iPad with Retina Display.
Apple is currently offering the refurbished 13" MacBook Pro 2.5GHz Dual-core Intel i5 for $1,189. This is the entry level MacBook Pro that was introduced in June of 2012, but with a 128GB SSD upgrade. On a new unit, that configuration would cost $1,399, making this a 15 percent discount.
Apple is currently offering the refurbished refurbished Mac mini 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 for $519. This is the entry level Mac mini with Thunderbolt that is regularly priced at $599, making this a 13.3 percent discount for the refurbished model. It ships for free and includes a one year limited warranty.
