A few weeks ago, Apple announced it’s back-to-school offer for current and prospective college students. The annual promotion includes an App Store gift card for up to $100 with the purchase a new Mac, iPad or iPhone. It’s a pretty solid deal, but having graduated from college years ago, I really don’t pay attention to it anymore. Especially since now all you get is an App Store gift card. That’s no fun. When I was in school, we got an iPod with our new Mac – which we immediately flipped for beer money.
However, despite graduating from college and ceasing to care about anything that has to do with school, I found myself once again staring down this deal.
My girlfriend’s younger brother is going to Illinois State University in the fall, and he really wants a new MacBook to take along with him. He also wanted my advice on which model and upgrades to go for since I work for OWC and that makes me the “expert”. (Side note: check out some of OWC’s own great deals on pre-owned MacBooks that are perfect for college starting at $529.99.) Article Continues…
It’s nearing the end of July and that means the stores are all featuring a few specific things—clearance mismatched swimsuits, returned camping equipment from dashed dreams of summer expeditions, and college and back to school gear. When shopping for these college supplies, it’s important to note that you can save a lot of money buying things used. Beanbag chairs work fine when you duct tape the holes (call it an artistic expression), that giant box TV is free and it still works if you drum out the solo from ”In A Gadda Da Vida” on it to get it going, and you know with a little TLC you can scrape the mysterious substance off that used microwave. But there are many things you should never buy used—a comforter, someone’s shower flip-flops, a sandwich maker—all of these things are a little too up close and personal. And then there are some things that everyone will suggest you buy but you shouldn’t buy at all—take for instance the body pillow. That thing will take up over half of your standard issue twin sized bed from 1996 and somehow steal all your covers in the middle of the night. Don’t ask me how this happens, it just does.

This morning, the online Apple Store has been taken down temporarily stating “We’re busy updating the Apple Store for you and will be back soon.” This action usually indicates a new product being released or updated.
With the WWDC keynote scheduled for today, we can expect that at least one new product will be added to the store when it comes back online. To watch the keynote streaming live* visit http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/
