Why buy new when you can buy used?
My good ole reliable Mac was starting to do some not-so-reliable things. So I knew it was time for a refresher. Instead of buying a brand new computer, I bought a new-to-me version. Mine is almost as pimped out as the latest version, but the refurbished version saved me 400 buckaroos.
The next time you're looking for a new Apple, check out the refurbished section. It's not just computers - it's iPods, too. It'll save you some green, and since it's refurbished it'll come with that nice recycling smell.
Plus, to show my new computer that I care, I made it a brand new custom tote, made from lovely recycled billboard material. Woo hoo for recycling!
