- 48% Off of Refurbished Laptop and Desktop Computers, Code: DELL48HOURS
Dell's Refurbished site is giving 48% off of "refurbished" computers listed for sale on their site.
Code DELL48HOURS gives the discount when a computer is added to the cart.
For example, a Grade-B cosmetic quality Dell OptiPlex 9020 with Intel Core i5-4570 Quad Core processor, 4GB memory, 500GB hard drive, and 32-bit Windows 7 Pro is $439 before coupon, and $228 after coupon.
If you want to save some money and don't mind some added risk to your purchase, Best Buy is also selling a open-box iPad Mini 4 128GB Space Gray for $325 ($25 off).
The product inside the box is still new, but the box has been opened and the product could have been briefly used/tested before placed back in its box.
We have been using an iPad Mini 2 for years, and love it.
If you currently use a laptop computer and want an iPad to compliment your productivity, we recommend the "Mini" over the regular-size iPad.
Someone with a laptop already has a screen size of 11-inches or more, and it might be redundant to have a similar size iPad.
The Mini is a good size- small enough to be portable and accessible, but large enough to see things clearly.
Although, if someone wants to replace their laptop with a tablet, consider a regular-size iPad which will have a larger screen and faster processor.
See Apple.com for a detailed comparison of iPad models.
