I'm always on the lookout for a good deal when it comes time to buy new gear, and I hate paying full retail for anything. When it comes time to replace my Mac, iPhone, iPad or other Apple accessory, I hunt around, hitting the retailers who I know offer deep discounts, and I use bargain hunting apps and services too. There's one place I always check out, and often find the best deals on Apple gear, however: Apple's web site itself. More specifically, the Certified Refurbished section of Apple's web site. That's often where you'll find the best deals.
