Discount iPods And Cheap Macs – Save Money Buying Clearance ModelsCategory: Apple iPods and Macs
A great way to get discount iPods and cheap Macs is to buy them on clearance. This works best when you’re in the market for an iPod or a Mac and aren’t in a big hurry to get one (don’t worry, there’s a way to get a great deal if you are in a hurry too). You can find really good deals this way, especially if you’re a bargain hunter.
Whenever Apple introduces a new Mac or iPod, your local stores need to sell their old models. The best part is that Apple gives them strict orders to sell their merchandise at a discount. Lucky for us!
I got my dream machine, a Power Mac Dual G5, this way a few years ago. I knew the Intel-based Macs were about to come out so I checked the electronics stores near me that sold Macs. Sure enough, a few dozen were marked down. A couple of weeks later Apple introduced the first Macs using Intel processors.
The computer I actually bought was also a display model. Because of that I was able to talk the salespeople down to an even lower price. It still carried the original Apple warranty but I probably would only do this for a desktop computer. Laptops take more abuse in the store but, other than the keyboard and mouse, a desktop just sort of sits there untouched. I’m very happy with my purchase and it still runs great.
