I just purchased a phone from this ebay seller and when it arrived it was as good as new!

It’s worth keeping an eye on these guys. The 2 specials below have sold out but they now have Apple watches for $189.

If you want to upgrade your SSD drive this week is a good time to do it. Ebay have a ‘20% off tech’ sale. You can find Crucial SSD drives in there that work great in any Mac that takes a normal 2.5″ SATA drive. That’s all iMacs, all Mac Minis and most (but not all) Macbooks.

Enter the code ‘powerup’ at the checkout to get 20% off before December 27.

Crucial 1TB  $415 – 20% = $332

Crucial 500GB  $232 – 20% = $185

These are a steal!

Bundle of 10 Mac Apps

10app

Over at  Stack Social there’s a great deal running.

Stack Social have put together a bundle of 10 Mac apps from various developers, you choose the price you want to pay.

For me personally  the only app in this bundle really worth paying for was WALTR. (It lets you put any movie easily onto your iPad. A few readers have suggested it in comments here. WALTR is usually $29). If nothing else it’s a cheap way to get WALTR.

There’s also Crossover which lets you use some (not all) Windows apps on your Mac. I tried using it with Windows Explorer to browse the web and it didn’t work! RapidWeaver might be useful (RRP $89) if you do website design.

Click on ‘Continue Reading’ for a full list of all the apps.

How to choose which macintosh to buy.

When you are researching buying a mac there are a few things to consider, one of them is speed. There is a great site by primate labs which collates speed tests according to model and ranks them. This was useful for me when I was thinking of upgrading my Mac pro to a new Mac mini, only to find that my four-year-old  Mac pro was faster! Check out how fast the new mac-pro’s are  – insane – I wish I could justify buying one!
