New and HOTiMac family revamped, including new 21.5-inch Retina 4K model
The iMac® family now includes the Retina® 5K display on every 27-inch model, and a stunning new Retina 4K display on the 21.5-inch model.

Both Retina displays now feature a wider color gamut that delivers more available colors so photos and videos appear even more true-to-life. More powerful processors and graphics, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and new storage options that make the high-performance Fusion Drive even more affordable are also included.

Along with the Retina models, the 21.5-inch iMac models feature faster processors and graphics, and a 1TB hard drive. All iMac models come with the all-new Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2®. And customers can choose to configure their iMac with a Magic Trackpad 2® instead of Magic Mouse 2.

New Magic Keyboard,  Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2 input devices announced
The new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 feature all-new designs for increased comfort and capabilities, and rechargeable batteries that are more convenient and environmentally friendly. And the new Magic Trackpad 2 brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time, adding a new dimension to the iMac experience.

The new Magic input devices pair automatically with your Mac as soon as they are plugged in via the Lightning® to USB charging cable, and can last about a month or more on a full charge.

Deal of the Week | Oct. 2nd, 2015: Mobile Device Charging Station for $1.99 (reg. $49.99)

Mobile Device Charging Station on sale for $1.99 - reg. $49.99One station to join them all, and on a counter charge them. With four outlets spaced to accommodate bulky AC adapters, as well as two USB charging outputs, this six-device charger station is perfect for organizing and charging your MP3 player, cell phone, digital camera, or any other portable electronic device. Not only that, but its built-in surge protection guards your precious from wayward electrons.

Charging stations like these normally sell for 60 bucks and up. Our everyday discounted price is $49.99. So how can we possibly afford to sell it this week for a rock-bottom $1.99?

The answer to that question is to dye for. No, that wasn’t a misspelling, just a truly awful pun. You can’t really tell from the photo above, but the color of the plastic on this device is… well, it’s odd. It’s the color of those nicotine-stained doilies at your chain-smoking great Aunt Tilly’s house. A color borrowed from the palette of absinthe-induced hallucinations, of smoke-damaged ivory, of rancid sour cream. They haven’t used this color in electronics manufacturing since the late 1970’s, and even then it was an ill-advised choice.

Somebody had to have lost their job for choosing this color. Deservedly.

But tucked away on a dresser, in the back of a bookshelf, under a counter – far, far from prying eyes – it will still do the job it’s intended to do, and do it well.

And no one will be the wiser.


  • Skid resistant pads hold devices securely
  • Five clips for cable organization
  • Expandable device holder
  • Foldable for easy portability
  • 1080 joule surge protection
  • On/off rocker switch

This offer runs from Friday, October 2nd through Thursday, October 8th, 2015, or while supplies last. Sorry, no rainchecks.
